We had a cheese savoury sandwich and a ham and tomato sandwich. Served in no time at all, in a beautifully soft bap. Also had a sausage roll which was divine. A truly lovely place to eat. Recommend highly for a spot of lunch.

Closes at 2000hrs, so we had 2 large beef baps which were great, large tea which was very good and an excellent strawberry delight ice cream. The staff were excellent, very helpful and friendly.

The dark-haired waitress was terribly unpleasant, she was impatient when I was having a look at the cakes and talked to me impolitely, than she did not tell me that I was supposed to pay in advance, even if it’s not normal in something that looks like a luxury coffee shop. Again, she was disrespectful when calling me to pay and when she served me my waffle.
The waffle and ice cream were ok but the cappuccino was disgusting
