Great home cooked meals

Ate supper then breakfast here. The place was busy so obviously others like it too! Dinner was freshly prepared for us - hambuger soup, followed by sandwiches. We watched 3 guys try to polish off those avalanche burgers! Only one was successful. Breakfast was quick, hot and fresh as well.

Family owned, rustic style, honest menus, large helpings, home cooked, hot tasty food served in a friendly manner. Seems to be a favorite hangout for the locals too. Great for families, couples and single travellers, friendly, clean, a must for breakfast, lunch or supper.

Could not believe how economically priced the breakfast was when we dined here. Genuinely friendly service. Wonderfully prepared food. An absolute delight!

Good breakfast, good lunch. Try the Alpine Stack for lunch. I enjoyed it so much I had it 2 days in a row. My husband's chicken burger was exceptional - a whole breast of chicken. The service was prompt and staff very friendly.

You don't come here for gourmet meals, but the atmosphere is old-timey and facilitates chatting with people at neighbouring tables. We had burgers and fries, which were quite good (the sautéed mushrooms were fresh and tasty) and an absolutely fantastic sticky toffee pudding which was worth the trip right there. Service was friendly, prices reasonable.

More of a cafe than a restaurant. Very quiet when we arrived but was overflowing within 15 mins. Only two waitresses serving and one had her arm in a sling but was doing a good job. They lost our starter order, which made our stay much longer. My main of fish and chips was really good, the fish had not... More
