We had lunch here on a weekday last week and the food was very dull - the special was pie and chips and in the absence of the seafood salad which was unavailable, I had that. I don't think the pie was home-made and if it was, they need a new pie chef. Pie needs to be heated in the... More

Homemade mushroom soup & sandwich combo £6. Tomato & pepper soup & sandwich combo. Both soups delicious. Kids shared a kids meal of chicken gougons, beans & chips. Latte, tea & 2 fantastic cost over £21. Service fast. Not too many smiles from staff as they seemed under pressure. 4* because of the lovely soups, otherwise 3*.
