It was busy when we were there, but staff were very attentive. We had a bowl of soup each with a scone. Coffee was excellent. Good place to stop for light lunch or tea.

Enjoyed a late lunch here. Tuna panini and San Pellegrino soda, £8.25. Friendly service. Good food. The soups looked very nice. Mixed seating inside; spft chairs and hard chairs. Indoor and outdoor seating. Multiple bird feeders by front window. Very busy with birds!
