Good but not great. Good things - service was good, atmosphere was lively, the room is large & attractive, and the food (pancakes with blueberries and mascarpone) was perfectly decent. Not so good things - rather uninspiring menu - brunch menu was quite extensive but main menu largely consisted of burgers, fish & chips and other standards (and apparently doesn't change often); they're a bit cheap - the pancakes didn't come with maple syrup (?!) so we asked for some, and then a £1.50 charge appeared on the bill for each little pot; the room was badly ventilated - cooking fumes permeate the restaurant so that the clothes I wore still reek of brunch, and we eventually had to leave because my friend's eyes were stinging; but the most annoying thing? The restaurant is not signposted. It's on the first floor of a converted building and you have to walk off the main street into a kind of alcove, go through a door off the alcove into the building then walk around a corridor to the right and go up to the first floor. At no point is there any indication that a restaurant exists in the building. Nothing. Nada. Not outside the building, not inside the building. This is irritating and pretentious.
