Not sure if this place is owned by the same people but the coffee is not that good anymore. Used to go there regularly but the baristas are young and have not been trained sufficiently to provide a great coffee. Pity as the coffee itself...More

Sorry to hear. Same owners, roaster and beans. Our baristas strive for perfection while ongoing training takes place at the roasters and on the job. Hope to see you back.

Only had coffee and cake, but was a great cup of coffee. Has several different seating areas with rustic couches and chairs.

Fortunately my sister in law had spotted the Palates and Ply and recommended a try. I ordered the truffle mushrooms and my husband the corn fitters. Both meals were delicious. We were so impressed I am already planning a return visit. My relatives were also...More

We were delighted to find good reviews for this joint that roasts its own coffee - assuming the standard would be high but we were sorely disappointed. My husband asked for a Ristretto macchiato (he drinks several a day for the last 30yrs) and was...More

A perfect venue for our end of year work Christmas party! The food was amazing! An awesome 'grazing table' plus more! The venue was perfect for a crowd and we all enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, staff were so friendly and hospitable.

A breakfast stop on a road trip north turned into an indulgence of the taste buds. My flat white was excellent and the massive stack of pancakes they gave me were so good I tried to finish them but I couldn’t. I didn’t think much...More

In town for business and read great reviews. Whilst I am happy to agree with them, I did wait >20 min for my takeaway coffee, making me late for a meeting. It was a busy morning, but for coffee only this was excessive.

Hi apologies, its not the norm, our target is 5 mins. Now and again we have a rush when everyone comes at once. Hope to see you back. ☺

The heading nearly says it all. Staff were friendly and efficient and the coffee was excellent. Real buzz to the place. No wonder it ranks no.1 I can highly recommend the field mushrooms for breakfast.
