Had a toasted sandwich and cup of tea. They offered me sauces etc. I said some mayonnaise would be nice. They put a dollop on a dish and charged me £1 for it. This was not fair as it was not a branded mayo. They did not charge for the vinegar!!!

Dear Seasontraveller54 Thank you for our recent review. Reading your review it leads me to believe that you found the £1 charge on top of the £7.70 charge for the toasted panini and pot of tea to be not good value for money. If this is the case then i would like to offer my apologies as you should not... More

I have been eating here quite regularly over the years. The food and service has been very consistent. The staff are always pleasant and very attentive. They have recently introduced a new menu with a daily special, so it's nice to see them changing it up. One thing I recommend is the new Mexican chilli beef tortillas for a starter.... More
