Popped in for a late breakfast before a meeting nearby, very friendly service with a cosy atmosphere. Food was simple but nicely done and presented. Nice selection of late breakfast/lunch choices

Lager is reasonably well kept, but that's not difficult. Cider in boxes looks reasonable. Beer is abused in the pipes. Steer clear.

Try and fine this little gem as it's well worth it. The breakfast is very good value and you get double sausage as standard......yum There is a roof terrace to sit and eat where you can see the minster. Staff are loverly.
