If you want a well priced meal in cosy surroundings then seek out the Joshua Tree. It is the opposite of fast food outlets and has pleasant atmosphere and surroundings. The food is fine and well presented.

Very nice food with quite a few gluten-free options and veggie choices. I chose Morecambe Bay potted shrimps with side salad and a bowl of thick chips. The potted shrimps were excellent, and a bottle of Fentiman's Lemonade was a perfect accompaniment.

The menu provided... More

We had brunch here over the weekend and the food, service and coffee was all very good. The only things I would change were it was a little cold inside, and the music was more late night chill tent at a festival than Sunday morning vibes!

Despite arriving ten minutes before last orders at 930, we were made very welcome and not rushed at all. Lovely varied menu with good portions and wonderful flavours. Been back just for a cup of tea and a piece of cake at lunchtime and equally good
