Delightful. The gravitational stability of the menus could be improved but other than that, we had a lovely half hour or so in this establishment. 200 characters is more than you'd think. Turns out you need a few more words.

Sausage, bacon, hash brown, mushroom, beans, fresh tomato, ... Utterly delicious, filling and well cooked. Didn't have to wait long, there were four of us! Bit... More

We popped in here for a breakfast and nearly turned around again...wish we had. Even with just a quick cursory glance the place looked grubby and mucky. The menu holders could certainly do with a trip to the dishwasher, the very large brown sauce squeezy bottle was covered in dried on sauce all around the lid and it didn't look... More

Excellent quality and very good portions. Great value for money. Friendly service and really clean. Nice 'retro' atmosphere without being old-fashioned. We would definitely go back and hope to actually stay there next time.

Sweet little cafe with very friendly staff. Food was excellent, jacket potatoes are big portions and ham sandwich made with gammon. Extremely great value for money. Had the chocolate cake with was lovely, only slightly sickly due to the large portion, but so nice I couldn't waste. Would certainly visit again

The cafe is wonderful, the staff friendly and great to talk to. The food served is all home cooked, and of top quality, very nice place to have some food and only five minuets from the front. And for the kids, there is a train that runs around the top of the room on a shelf, keeps all the kids... More

Popped in here for lunch after our trip to cowes. It's on the high street so not to difficult to miss but there are a selection of places to go to. The veggie options encouraged us to go here and they were really pleased we did. Big jacket potatoes with loads of fillings, nice eggs and a good breakfast. Left... More

The sponge was lovely but unfortunately it had this horrible bright yellow buttercream on it that didn't taste very nice. Service was great, a wasp decided to take a drink of my coke mentioned this to the lady at the... More
