Great tasting food, low prices

I went here with a few friends for breakfast, no place better for great tasting food and low prices. A few of us got frys, a pancake stack and a New York breakfast, everyone said their food was lovely. Very impressed with this place! Ps milkshakes are to die for!

Went there for dinner last weekend and were impressed with the large menu. The food was great. We ordered burgers and chips with cheese and gravy. We also had a milkshake - you should definitely try one from the special milkshake menu! The service was very poor though. After not being served for almost 45 minutes, the waitress asked us...

Sandwiches and soup were made of freshest possible ingredients. Fun options such as adding balsamic roasted tomatoes to your sandwich.

We had to leave after 1 hour 30 minutes, after asking twice where are order was. Really poor service unfortunately as the food is really good in here. You are risking it by going here really.

The waitress was standing at the door looking out the window when we arrived here. She opened the door for us but then stood for a few minutes still looking out the window while we stood at the "wait for service" sign. It was a little awkward. No smile or anything as we were plonked into a table. No smile... More

Been here a few times and it always disappoints. Service has been slow anytime I've been in, they've forgot about drinks on a few occasions. Menu is big which is good. Mexican fajita is nice! If your looking for a quick bit to eat this probably isn't the best spot, but it's grand to meet a few friends for a... More

Visited around 11am on a Sunday morning, and the place was full to overflowing. Although the service was a bit slow this was probably due to the numbers there. However when our breakfasts arrived they were well worth the wait. Piping hot and a freshly cooked taste.
