I have visited with friends a number of ttimes for coffee, but of late I have found the whole experience a bit of a let down. Quite chaotic, slow service and pricey. Scones etc are not as nice as they were, and no clotted cream for scones. I was offered scooshy cream - why?

Arrived there about 12.15 pm and stood waiting at the counter for someone to serve us. We stood for about 5 minutes and a guy behind the counter shouted service, still nobody came so we decided not to bother with food and just had a cup of tea. Not very good customer service as far as I am concerned. Wouldn't... More

We went for a light lunch with the family for the first time, and it was terrific. The selection was great, as was quality of the cakes. We'd heard so much, and now suggest you go to. The staff did their best, certainly when busy, there should be more.

We went as a family of 5 for lunch. I chose to have fish and chips. The fish arrived cold and the chips very very dried out. I ate some because I was really hungry. But I found myself getting more annoyed by every bite. I wouldn't have minded paying what we did, but my food was inedible and everyone... More

As part of the shop, the restaurant /café has a counter service. The choice for breakfast is quite good, with your choice of 7 (or 10) items out of about 12 offered. The cost is cheap and value is therefore good; but the staff are not particularly friendly and the food not very hot. And, there's no marmalade!
