So this place is delightful and A few things (I will outline below meant I didn't give it 5 stars)
So We booked for a hen do - sash making - which I wasn't sure how they would do it, but it was good.
Atmosphere: daytime it was open area with a skylight - very airy, think tea room meets cafe. They have a selection of cakes at the bar area, and the music is a bit retro and sometimes modern,...more
Fun, quirky, amusing, well designed venue with a touch of 'shabby chic'. Well made cocktails served by nice bar staff....all cleverly disguised as a shop, which stops it getting over crowded!

Highlighting their expertise you can also buy coffee making equipment here, which to my unsophisticated eye appears pretty niche.
There isn't a great deal of seating and this certainly isn't...more
