Visited on Saturday with a Groupon voucher. Luckily we managed to grab a table as it was quite busy. The service was very friendly and the food was great. The cakes were delicious!

Pastries and coffees were great, if the had arrived at the same time. Never got the water we ordered. Staff seemed too busy chatting, to be bothered with us mear customers. Several tables were getting quite frustrated. I'll get a take away coffee next time.

We had the afternoon tea, the food was plentiful and tasty. The hot chocolate was a lovely finish. A special shout out to David who was so polite and attentive. Excellent service and good value for money. I’ll definitely be returning.

Don’t bother unless fly swotting is your sport. Place is full of fruit flies and obviously has a hygiene problem. Told the waiter and would get more response from talking to the tea pot. Manageress said they are coming from outside..... I think not.
