Lovely pancakes made to order. Gluten free also available so long as you give them a bit of warning to make up a batch for you.

Made to order, competitively priced and friendly service with an impressive end result! Apart from wearing most of the icing sugar these were really enjoyable and a winner with the girls! Only criticism is the somewhat sporadic opening hours ended up disappointing my youngest daughter in last night of holiday when the 9pm close had reverted to 4pm!!😡😭

If this place had a seating area inside it would def be 5 stars! Amazing range of sweet, savoury or build your own. Staff the friendliest and happiest I gave ever come across in a food bar!

Lovely pancakes, delicious fillings (that you can taste, ignore the complaints about Nutella I thought there was plenty and I've been quite a few times over the summer) bit disappointed with the savoury option but I definitely have a sweet tooth so may just be me. Reccomend Nutella and marshmallows or Nutella and peanut butter.

Pancakes made to order and loads of different fillings. I just had lemon and sugar, but my son had the works and demolished it. Worth a visit .

Great pancakes made by a real actual Dutchman. He was even able to make gluten free pancakes which pleased my wife no end. Good value too.

Friends had told is about GJ's after hearing a piece on the radio and we decided to give it a go. The pancakes were good with an excellent variety of toppings but to be honest, no better that I could cook at home. One of ours was underdone and the toppings were served on top, rather than inside. Nice enough... More

Lovely pancakes, really tasty, owner is very friendly and a diverse range of flavours/fillings is available. The only negative thing I would say is that they are a tiny bit expensive for what you get ? (£2.50)

Went here for something different to the daily pastie, came away slightly disappointed. My girlfriend and I both had savoury pancakes, they were put together nicely, however they were then microwaved, I assume this was to melt the cheese, however this was only partially melted. I feel a better experience could of been had of there was not just one... More
