Wonderful choices

This is a quirky place , with lots of different food choices. A big menu, which makes it hard to choose what you'll eat as its all sounding rather lovely. Ideal for a coffee stop too.

Ate here a year or so ago and had to wait for a table. Great menu fabulous food and very reasonable. It's changed hands! No one else eating here at all this Saturday which seems to say it all. Now a really boring menu, unless you are looking for big burgers! Just had a drink and left disappointed.
