I recently ate here and I have to say I wasn't impressed at all. The space has a lot of potential but it is badly used. The tables are all take-away type tables, there aren't any sofas, flowers on tables are all dead and it doesn't feel homely at all. It feels quite cold and unwelcoming.
The other thing was food.. Presentation was awful, let alone the vegetable casserole I had was basically boiled vegetables in a bland cooking water. When I checked with the waitress she said it was like a stew which it had no resemblance of. There was a shelf next to the till with condiments, jams and peanut butter. Everything was branded Sainsbury's. Same for the teas, I can understand that it may be more convenient for them to shop in a supermarket, but it would be nicer not to see that so blatantly.. For dessert I had an apple pie which tasted good, but again the presentation was quite bad. It leaves room for a lot of improvement.. Sorry!
central location, reasonably priced
atmosphere isn't cosy, food is bland and unseasoned, uncomfortable furniture
