Spotlessly clean, new decor, wonderful loos, & no loud club music being played when one is trying to enjoy a conversation. Just popped in with a friend for a cuppa & a really nice one it was. None of this tea with a hint of dried oregano leaves steeped in water drained from mount Vesuvius. Will definitely be going again.
Not sure about the music venue but the restaurant is a very enjoyable experience. Lovely setting modern but light and interesting. Food is incredible and affordable. Can't wait to eat there again!
