We went for brunch on a Sunday afternoon. The owner or whoever were running it was really quite rude. Could have been trying to come across as funny and being people's 'mate' but it just made for an uncomfortable experience. The breakfast itself was pretty poor, dry scrambled eggs, fried egg was overcooked as was the hash browns. You get... More

I always come here for breakfast, especially good when I am hungover. I don't think this is the type of place I would visit for lunch or evening meal, but I highly recommend the breakfast. My boyfriend wasn't keen on the herb sausages so early in the morning and feels they have no place on an english breakfast (better served... More

A pleasant enough local restaurant. Service was efficient on a quiet Monday evening. Some elements of our meal were very good (pork belly, duck, green beans); others average (fish, dauphinoise potatoes, other veg). Weirdly one main course plate was scalding hot, the other barely warm.

6 of us went in for a cup of tea or coffee and a couple of us also had soup as it sounded so good. Service was efficient and when the food arrived it was OK. 3 of us had ordered tea but only given one pot between us and a small milk jug. No problem getting hot water and... More

Visited with friends. The service was a bit hit and miss. There were 6 of us and we all arrived at slightly different times. Took quite a while to order but it was busy. The breakfast was ok but the quality of the food isn't amazing. Ingredients are probably bought from Aldi and you could get just as good results,... More

Visited here for lunch, staff were very friendly. Had the pulled pork bap with fries it was packed with meat and very tasty. Sat out in the sun which makes a pleasant change! Very nice lunch we will go again

Went here on Saturday with friends who eat here regularly and really enjoyed it. The food was piping hot and delicious. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. It's a quirky little place with lots of charm and bags of atmosphere. Will definitely be returning.

Went in for lunch last weekend as it's always busy outside and wanted to see what the fuss was about, unfortunately it did not live up to expectations. Firstly, the staff were unresponsive and not personable, and made us feel extremely uncomfortable when sat in the restaurant at the back. Not one smile either. The young girls seemed completely out... More

We popped in for lunch last Sunday. Staff seemed liked zombies! I asked if they had any gluten-free option and was met with an abrupt "no"! Drinks watered down with excessive ice without being asked. When meals arrived, average quality - mine was smoked fish salad, salad limp and tired, 1 tomato! There was no "enjoy your meal" no "... More
