The best place to have a rest with a cup of coffee and a pastry of your choice in the midst of a very well kept garden . Tables and chairs under the magnificent trees. The ever present pigeons looking for morsels of food may...More

Good english breakfast for less than 10 pounds. Beans are sweet and bacon is crunchy. The paninis are pretty tasty.

Ridiculous ban on using a laptop, despite place being empty. I would have stuck around and ordered some food, but the place was so miserable I couldn't wait to leave. Dire coffee too. Avoid!!

Good home style cooking at reasonable prices. Sausage especially very good. Nice when warm and nice you can sit outside.

I'm not really keen on chain restaurants but I have to say that our waiter was really attentive and kept popping back to make sure that my table of 7 had everything that we needed. Had seafood tagliatelli that was absolutely delicious.
