Been here many times before but we came today for an organised bbq and it was lovely. Plenty of space outside in the courtyard especially on a sunny day and extra seats were provided. Staff behind the bar seemed pleasant and helpful

I assumed this was just a coffee and cake sort of venue and had no idea they served lunches. Met a couple of friends, stayed for lunch and had a lovely relaxed afternoon catching up in this cute little courtyard setting. The staff didn't hurry...More

On our bicycle trip (C2C route 7) we sopped in Washington for a coffee. It turned out that the Arts Centre was the only (open) place at that time of the day. We were surprised that there were so many cultural activities here. The coffee...More

We visited here in July and really enjoyed it! The food is delicious, the burgers are definitely worth a try! It is quite small, but it does have a lovely atmosphere. Would return and recommend.

Food is always lovely here, but watch out for soft drink prices: 50p for soda water and a crippling £1.60 for a pint of squash! Also £1.75 for a 1/2 pint of casket ale.

We ate with friends, the menu is extensive and reasonably priced. Be patient if there is a crowd in, the small kitchen works methodically to ensure the dishes are cooked well. The burgers are worth trying!
