    Fantastic service, friendly and helpful, afternoon tea excellent (although the scones were a bit dry)
    Interesting, cosy venue, only a stone's throw from Baker Street Station. I would definitely go again!

    It was a lovely reunion with two old friends, both travelling into central London. This was perfect in terms of distance, accessibility but also ambience, food, staff and facilities. We didn't want to leave!

    Great service and attention to detail. The whole group enjoyed the food and experience and it was brilliant to have a gluten free alternative ready.
