This is tiny, but is staffed by keen and enthusiastic people who are charming. It's a focal point and always a good place to meet if you split from chums.

I had a look around this tower and enjoyed a wonderful mug of tea and poece of cake at a very reasonable price. The ladies who served me were wonderful as was the tea. I collected my usual fridge magnets and tea towel from here.
