Loved the look and feel Of the place. Service was slow and our meals come One by one. Tea never arrived except on the bill. Owner and staff are friendly. Food was good, nice sized servings. Don't be in a hurry

We soaked up the sun in the courtyard on a spring Sunday morning. Enjoyed the friendly service and hearty breakfast. Marmalade the cat shared the space with us, adorable. Lovely outing. Will definitely visit again.
