    The food took almost 50 min to be served, this happened for all of us, so we ate alone technically...

    beers are ok, just make sure you do not eat here, anything with salted caramel in particular. i can still not believe they served us standard caramel with massive lumps of rock salt pinched on it.

    VEGETARIANS AVOID. One option (tart), and they had to do a comprised version as they didn't have most of the ingredients. Was told pointedly that "they often sell out late in an evening". It was 8.30.

    Went for lunch today. Roast was average, you could tell that it was mass produced and they were churning them out. Didn't have the dessert I wanted. Service was good, atmosphere good, food average.

    Solid and reasonably priced pub / restaurant with good beer/cider/lambic selection. Grab a seat then order & pay at the bar.
