Spotlessly clean, not imposing, friendly efficient staff and lovely food. The orange almond cake is delicious and a fab flat white which isn’t bitter. Great prices too

Had a great night for a works night out. Fantastic tuition from Lewis - he kept it interesting and entertaining. The food was amazing too and all the staff were very friendly. It’s such a shame it’s closing down.

Having been twice before, we decided to make a third visit. This time, led by Nick Nairn himself. 09:30 till 16:00 sounds a long time but it flew by. Nick shared his culinary knowledge of course (which includes a liberal dose of chemistry), intermingled with...More
