This established and well-known Leather Lane caffeine hub may well be equal to the boast: “best coffee shop and baristas in the UK” – it’s certainly “much better than the nearby chains”, and serves “very good, proper coffee” from a selection of leading independent roasters. The breakfasts and light meals are also tasty renditions of carefully sourced ingredients.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
