Really enjoyed the meal and even got a smile from the waitress. Good meal and close to my hotel. Lots of competition nearby.

Excellent stop to kill a hangover. Large fry and a demon (Oreo Monster) milkshake. Cheap but not nasty and a real gem!

My partner and I came in for a quick lunch, I had the full fry, delicious. She had chicken fajita wrap, came as one fully wrap, no what she was expecting, but she really enjoyed it after picking out the peppers :) It also came with a portion of chips which were brilliant, really tasty chip shop style. Totally recommend,... More

Waited 15 mins to be given a menu, for then a further half an hour wasted sitting in the cafe as they ignored us and didnt attempt to take our order. Awful service!!!

My friends always make me go here and I'm not sure why. It is without doubt some of the worst service I have ever experienced. Some of the staff are very rude, uninterested, service is slow and they always get at least one of the orders wrong.

I have to say I hate giving bad reviews and it is with great reluctance that I write this. This place has always been very convenient to me and I can honestly say I haven't had a bad meal here.
