We had our breakfast here two mornings as we were staying at the Travelodge nearby. Lovely place inside and Rhona our waitress was very good. She was on her own first morning and we felt she maybe could have done with some help as service a little slow but it seemed to be better on the second morning. Breakfast was... More

Worth a trip for sure and would recommend after... More

the food here is very good if somewhat standard. Staff are friendly enough sometimes too attentive. It's the wait for meals that is the issue. Over three quarters an hr waiting for a meal is not on. With no apology, no free drink to tide us over. Customer service is not high priority.
