Enjoyed coffee and fishcakes here when starting the day. We were also fortunate enough to catch a jam session one night on our way by. Easily accessible there on Water Street. Great energy and warm feel.

Great food with a funky atmosphere. Staff are cheerful and the food is good. Highly recommend their bread pudding 😍 Stopped here for lunch with friends, a busy place but no problem getting a table.
