Took a group of friends to have lunch to celebrate my birthday. Always guaranteed a great meal here and they didn't disappoint. Food was fantastic, restaurant quality and very attentive, welcoming staff. Love this place for breakfast and lunch - shame they don't do dinner!

Popped in for a coffee with my friend. Which we was disappointed with. The coffee was very bitter and had no flavour. The atmosphere was unwelcoming, and the staff where not helpful at all when I complained about my coffee. Will not be returning and will not be recommending.
