A tiny cafe/Shop with wonderful views over the River but when we arrived at 3pm for tea we were told that they stopped serving crumpets and toasted tea cakes at 12noon Incredible- I tried to explain that crumpets and toasted tea cakes are served at...More

There were 5 of us in our group, we entered the cafe at 12.30 and asked for jacket potato, they did not have any and then asked what is the soup of the day, they did not know, so we left vowing never to return,...More

On the plus side, best views in Bath from their windows overlooking the weir. Note that the café is split into 2 separate looking cafes, side by side, but they are both the same and use the same kitchen. One can be full while the...More

Wanted to try out but often busy, got coffee and cake on last morning, warming and tasty! Be warned portion sizes enormous! Even when shared!
