The building is a bit of a Tardis

We were welcomed warmly and were impressed by the choice on the menu. I had their Thai beef roll. This was served on... read more

Dinner for two in what (from the outside) looked like a business park unit. Walked in and saw the kitchen. One person kitchen. At the front door. One waitress. Nothing else needed apparently. GREAT food. GREAT selection. Not over-complicated. Fabulous flavours blended together to bring the best out of each other. Dishes that I wouldn't normally have suddenly became appealing.... More

Popped in here for a quick bite to eat for breakfast because toast was very busy, it was nearly lunch time so we ended up having a main and a pudding! The food was absolutely divine, the waitress attentive and honest and the service efficient! Everything on the menu looked so delicious we took ages deciding what to have, we... More

Unassuming from the outside - gave it a try for breakfast after staying in Premier Inn. What a lovely place. Pleasant and helpful waitress - really lovely food and coffees. Kids had French toast - thick eggy bread with maple syrup and bacon. Adults had eggs - perfectly poached. It is effectively in the middle of a car park -... More

Love love love this place. Food is delicious, staff are friendly and helpful. Being on a dairy and egg free diet, the staff are always wiling to help and give information about suitable choices. The chef even came out on one occasion to give me a run through of all the things I could have and all the things she... More

Went recently on a Saturday night to celebrate a birthday. Main reason for going was the chef was able to cater for people with peanut allergy. Party of 6 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food. BYOB and on website it advertises £1 to open a beer bottle but we were charged £2 as it was a large bottle!! Service charge... More

Three of us went for lunch during work, was very surprised at how Quick service was considering we only had 1 hour, we were back at work in time which wAs really good. Staff prompt and efficient. Dining area felt a little small and quite close to other tables for people trying to get past but apart from that it... More

Food here was ok, nothing to write home about, it looked good on the menu though. But the waitresses were so rude! From the minute we got in we got the distinct impression they were trying to kick us out. We arrived at 9 and were informed "we close at 10:30", I think that's plenty time to get fed but... More
