On Saturday I had the falafel with corn tacos, which I have had previously. The falafel was dense on this occasion and the accompanying slaw was turned brown and tasteless. I mentioned this to a member of staff and they said "sorry"; but no offer...More

Met a couple of old friends here on a Thursday afternoon. Ended up staying for 4 or 5 hours as we caught up. We all chose the Moroccan chicken special (similar to chicken tikka) which was perfectly acceptable. Service was fine. Buzzy atmosphere but not...More

It is nice and buzzy and busy in here, but the acoustics can mean that it gets a bit too loud at times, but you can then escape to the relative quiet of the corridor seating if you want to chat. The menu is interesting,...More

Good access with lift to cafe. Easy to seat 10 of us. Disappointed with lunchtime menu. Chose beef burger which didn't taste of anything. Also slow service on 2 meals although it wasn't particularly busy. Nice position by water

Butternut & Goat-Cheese sandwich was very nice. They have daily specials and they have all proven to be worth-a-go. I have yet to be disappointed with the creativity, and the quality is generally very good.
