Popped in for some lunch, the hot Keswick rarebit was absolutely delicious! Highly recommended. Great cappuccinos too! Friendly service.

We popped in for a snack and a coffee. After finally attracting the waitresses attention we ordered. We were shown to a table so it was not like we had just sat down 40 minutes later we were contemplating leaving when we got our lukewarm...More
