Enjoyed the burgers

Myself and my relative really enjoyed are burgers they were very tasty, what made them even better was that it was two burgers for £10.00 on Wednesdays.The bottle of house white was nice and service was good.

I have been to this a place a couple of times and really enjoy it. A friend of mine rented the back room it out and we put a film on and celebrated her leaving to go to uni. The food is delicious, wish I had more money at the time to get more food. I had tonsillitis at the... More

I Went here for breakfast on a Monday morning. I chose to have a full English with two of everything as did my husband. It was absolutely spot on, even though I was full I had to finish it all! The price was good too £6.50! I Would definitely go here again for breakfast!

Cool place. Popped in for a sandwich. I had the meatball melt which was ok but the meatballs were overcooked and there wasn't a lot of sauce so was quite dry overall. I tried my partners pastrami sandwich which was lovely and he really enjoyed. Would like to come back to try the fry up which someone next to us... More

Came here for breakfast after it was recommended and was not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome the food was really nice even the veggie breakfast option which can be hit and miss. We have a one year old daughter and the girls that work there were really friendly and made a fuss of her... More

Carnivore's delight with beans. Don't be afraid of the black pudding. Delicious. Sat in the front and didn't know (notice?) that you had to go to the bar to order food in the afternoon. Servers were friendly but waited for me to figure it out.

Im frequently here, we have our little business gatherings here and we just pop in for a quick coffee. Everytime we leave with a smile on our face. Such lovely and informative staff. Warm greeting when we enter and a sincere goodbye when you leave. Food is delicious and the hot chocolate is to die for!

I come here quite regularly with my partner and friends. It's our breakfast spot, so I rarely try anything else. Have had the halloumi salad a couple of times and it's great too! Highly recommend.

Went here only for breakfast on two occasions (lunch + dinner menu looks delicious but never got a chance) and was seriously impressed both times. They have a tidy selection of breakfast options and all were very tempting. Went for the small breakfast myself and my dad went for the veggie option. They were both extremely tasty. It seemed like... More
