We tried this cafe for lunch only to find the place empty and they were out of most things.What they did have was expensive.The food was nice but basic.The price has put me off going back.The lack of food available put my husband off.

Having chose a table in the patio area we both ordered burgers and my son chose sausages & chips. We were... More
