This has become a regular haunt, breakfast, coffee, brunch and supper, the menu's are all good. Good value, appropriate portion size, very pleasant staff even when busy. Smart, modern surroundings, seating inside and out. Feed the ducks, relax and enjoy good coffee.

So decided to go for a week day evening. Can say we were not disappointed, the meal was for two adults and a 12 year old.... More

Dave really spends time creating the combinations of ingredients to create what is a simple but complex skate fish dish.(when you try it you will know what I mean. Lol ) Oh, and... More

Would definitely come back again! Well priced food for the portion you get and everything on the plate tasted amazing. All the staff were very welcoming and helpful; also the cocktails were huge and all freshly made. Already planning to come again, thank you for a lovely dinner!

Having read the online reviews, rang mid week to book a table for the weekend. The friendly staff informed me that due to the popularity of the restaurant Friday and Saturday they operate settings however during the week open tables.
