I visited the Deanery today for the first time as I met up with a friend and we just wanted a coffee. The Deanery seems to be geared up for lunches, but we arrived just after 2:30 and ordered coffee and cakes. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the coffee and cakes couldn't be faulted. Later on we were the last people seated but never felt rushed to leave. Very pleasant surroundings and, overall, a lovely place to meet. I've heard good reports about their lunches so I plan to try one soon!
