Lovely fresh, hot coffee. Daughter had a hot chocolate which was lovely also. As it's down a side street it was nice and quiet. We will be back.

I went with a couple of friends and after adding £25 to my card we found that all the white wines downstairs were not working. We were then told we could sit upstairs on sofas but they had a function that evening (it was 4pm)....More

Great place to come to taste some wines. There is about 10 wines to choose from and 3 sizes. However there are plenty of wine bottles for sale. Only comment would be it would be good if there were more wines on offer to taste....More

This place has a very nice wine choice although the Italian section is very poor. Staff is very nice and friendly and the location is lovely. Definitely it's a nice place to go and have a relaxing and pleasant evening.
