We stopped off here as it was nice day. The service was very friendly upon arrival and welcoming. However, we ordered a sandwich and a panini which seemed to lack the filling. For the price they were charging we though it was not worth the money. Shame really as it lets the service down.

We called in for breakfast shortly after opening time and were immediately greeted by an extremely friendly member of staff who suggested which table we should sit at. Our order was taken quickly and the food and drink arrived quickly. Tea, coffee and juice were all lovely and the cooked breakfasts plentiful and extremely tasty. The potato cakes were simply...

This cafe has been decorated well and sell delicious food and drinks, the only problem is the service. I have been here many times and every time it has taken a long time to get served and to receive our food. Even soup took 20 mins. I kept coming back because the food and the atmosphere was nice however on... 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

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 of mistakes like forgetting... More

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

My friends invited me for lunch on a Thursday afternoon in March as it was our birthday week. We have fantastic service and the food was lovey. I had one of the specials that day and I am really glad not only was it the healthy option but it was so tasty. The lady surprised us with a large slice... More
