We went for light lunch. The sandwiches sounded simple but we're perfectly made on beautiful bread. The interior refurb is great, staff are friendly, prices are reasonable. We will back and can highly recommend.

We read the reviews and turned up for food only to be told they dont serve food and all the reviews and websites are for the previous owners, so maybe update your website?
