Have visited a number of times. Food is OK but a touch pricey as tends to be the norm for this place wgere style tends to exceed content. Staff are friendly and the overall ethos is fairly relaxing.

Myself and my wife have been to this art cafe on many occasions. The coffee is good, the staff are friendly and the opportunity is there to browse the lovely art works in the loft and garden areas. What's not to like - Highly recommend.

Really beautiful art gallery and a cafe and garden which provide a haven of calm. Lovely food in the cafe, all vegetarian and freshly made. We go there to chill when stressed - and it always works!!
