The coffee and food were great, the room is very nice and full of character and perfect for what we wanted. Cozy, comfortable and informal. When I arrived to set up there was a cold reception and a sense that I was a bit too early for them - but after that they sent me downstairs and I got everything ready. Then the service was great - friendly and efficient. It's basically a cool coffee bar with a room in the basement so it's not set up for anything too formal - but the price reflects that.

Overhead projector was not well set up - the screen is at an angle so you get a skewed view of the screen. One toilet for the whole place - inc the coffee shop - is a bit of a pain.

Excellent food - feedback from team best food at a venue, service was great aside from 1 person. Great venue and perfect for an informal meeting

Didn’t advise when getting close to limit Would be better to have tea / coffee set up in the room so not constant interruptions. Even though food was ordered early a little disorganised on delivery, but all in all a great day.
