We visited here for a late dinner on a Thursday evening and although the restaurant was not busy, we were completely snubbed by the waitress for at least 5 minutes before another waitress showed up and was kind enough to seat us in one of the many vacant booths. We would have walked out but it was getting late and... More

Food tasted great, coffee was excellent. The place needs a place to store/hang coats though in the winter months since the booths are a little tight.

We visited on 3rd January 2015, and left the place after waiting for 20min for our food and being told we would have to wait another 20min. In the time we were there (30min in total counting the time it took to order) we didn't see any plates with food and cold see people becoming impatient to be served, and... More

This place is sooooo lovely. Staff are great and so is the food. The food order was going to be running late, but the staff let us know about this from the very start and kept us up to date throughout - makes a difference to many other cafes/restaurants. Food looked great, tasted great and was a good price -... More

Very friendly staff, large menu of old favourites with lots of veggie dishes, all at reasonable prices. Good food and filling (mushroom wellington especially good). And they allowed the dog in - thank you so much, we really struggled to find dog friendly lunch places (apparently it's on a case by case basis, so not guaranteed but good chance if... More

Great food, great music, great atmosphere, and they have local brews. Every dish served to our party of 5, consisting of 3 picky kids, was excellent. This was our favorite meal in four days of eating at local restaurants.

I went for the lamb and mint sausage with Champ mash and caramelised onion gravy. Other half went for the herby pork sausage with... More
