“Wonderful airy and open space with a vintage industrial vibe and stunning food. Hard to get a table here on Saturday mornings and there is usually a queue , but so worth the wait. Good selection of counter food as well as menu items, which will be beautifully presented at your table with garnish and relishes. Probably the best selection of current magazines and newspapers to read while you enjoy your perfect Flat White ”

“Cute wee bar on the wharf in Thames. You can order fish n chips next door and they will bring it over to you in the bar while you are having a wine and looking out over the mangroves.”
