    A nice friendly upmarket foodie café/restaurant that is very popular - I would recommend booking at 'peak' times. I ordered the chickpea salad with the lamb topping. The chickpea salad was a cold dish that was tasty and fragrant but I was not quite sure that the hot lamb topping (tasty and quite generous) complimented the dish. My wife had the quesadilla that was the better of the two dishes - very nice.

    We had a lovely afternoon tea here on Sunday afternoon. I’d mistakenly not mentioned on my booking form that we wanted afternoon tea (which they are meant to have 48 hrs notice for) but this was no trouble for them and they made up our afternoon tea picnic tables pronto! There was a great mix of food on the table, and so much that we had a doggy bag to tag Home afterwards! Definitely recommend to all - a real twist on afternoon tea but one I would definitely visit again - thank you!

    Great food friendly staff. We had the winter afternoon tea which was delicious and so much of it however the savoury course could have come with an option of warm or cold personally I like my quiche/tart, sliders, pork pie warm however other may prefer cold.the scones were shop bought they were lovely however everyone loves homemade. Overall lovely afternoon I will definitely be going there again.

    Afternoon tea for my mums birthday. Service was quite slow. We arrived at 12:30, about 13:10 the waitress came over and said they needed table back at 14:30, which I already knew but we hadn't even got our afternoon tea by then!

    The one thing that let the afternoon tea down was actually the scones, equivalent to scones from a package, the hard and dry sort... Everything else seems home made and fresh! This certainly wouldn't stop me returning, I want to try the rest of the menu! Atmosphere and service was great too.

    Went for afternoon tea to celebrate my birthday. The staff were helpful and polite. The setting was lovely and was really impressed by the food. The afternoon tea was superb - unusual selection of savoury and sweet options. Great cocktails afterwards! Overall a great time and would definitely recommend.

    Had the mixed mezze Friday between 3 of us and it was delicious and exceptional value for money. My only slight gripe would be that there could be a more varied and slightly diverse selection of starters to choose from for the mezze. Having said that, what we had (nachos, halloumi sticks and loaded fries) was lovely.

    We went for brunch, plenty of good vegetarian options as well as meaty ones and it's worth booking in advance as several people came in while we were there and couldn't get a table. My only criticism would be that there didn't seem to be enough staff for good service, we ordered a second cup of tea that never arrived and the waitresses looked rushed off their feet.

    Great to see the new menu, which although it hasn't changed as much as I hoped it would, still offered me a few different things to try. On this occasion I went for the butternut squash burger with goats cheese and beetroot, served with sweet potato fries and salad. The burger was delicious, as were the sweet potato fries, it's just a shame they are charging a £1 extra for them! My only slight complaint would be the salad which had too much dressing on it for my liking - it was more dressing than salad unfortunately. As ever, the Pornstar Martini cocktails were to die for - well worth the money and the best place I have ever had one, and I've tried a few! The service had improved from my last visit so overall a very pleasant evening and one which I hope to repeat soon 😀
