I visited here with friends last week, and I couldn't help but think that for such a small, quiet business it took a long time for our order to be taken. The young lad serving us was incredibly enthusiastic but slightly scatty. He took our order without a notepad and because of this, made a couple... read more

Came here for lunch with a friend on a weekday. Had a cappuccino and a prawn sandwich, pricing was fairly reasonable. Service was nice and prompt. Not overly busy, managed to find seats. I would visit again when I am back in the area in November.

Pretends to be something it s'ant. Poor food and service not great. Expensive for what you get - Considering the range of local (better) competition will not be rushing back

My elderly sister and I enjoyed a pleasant lunch here. Because she only eats small meals,we shared a chicken baguette and a portion of chunky chips. The waitress even brought two plates for us so we could divide the meal. Wonderful chips....best I've ever had! Excellent coffee and tea. Service was quick. (Just a point...if the owners read the reviews...they... More
