Was about to give it a try but the whole of the front area was populated with dozens of screeching infants mewling and puking over ice creams and milkshakes

popped in here briefly while visiting friends for the weekend a few weeks ago , service was slow and so we didn't bother ordering food. might try again but most likely not.

"On other occasions the coffee has been watery and tasteless."


For crying out loud ... this is BEER In The Evening.

It's bad enough already with 40% of comments bleating on about food all the time.

Have found this place quite unappealing.... went in for a coffee with my friend and couldn't even find a table for two as it was completely over ruled by mother's with their screaming children who had pushed every table in the place together. Very unwelcoming and the staff seemed completely unobliging to do anything to encourage other customers. On other occasions the coffee has been watery and tasteless. I however haven't tried the food to comment so this might be quite enjoyable, though i'm not convinced enough by the atmosphere to bother trying.

Appallingly slow (and disinterested) service. Pass by, it WILL be quicker

Very good for cottaging, allegedly ...

I think it only survives because it is trendy with people who think they are trendy. The two times I have visited the service has been poor and the prices high. As I am too old to be trendy I pass it by when I am the area.

Good place to start off the evening before it gets too busy. Drinks are expensive but that comes with territory. More for the wine and cocktail brigade.

Trendy bar/coffee shop, conspicuously out of place in Harpenden which is just too provincial to be the buzzing commuter market town some deluded souls imagine it to be.
I like the town too... I just baulk at some of the pretensions. Even if the place does employ "well fit peeps" I'd rather give it a miss.
