Handy if you stay at Travelodge nearby. The place is probably intended for lorry drivers originally, but it is frequented by locals and tourists are alike for generous portions, friendly service etc. Don't miss it if you are nearby and after a nice cooked breakfast.

A wonderful cafe specialising in cooked breakfasts. This is a second set of visits. Nothing is too much trouble for this family. They are striving to provide the best traditional breakfast experience and succeed! If you have the opportunity then give them a try. Prices are reasonable, options are varied. The food is excellent...my only wish is that they might... More

Great start to a very wet Saturday. This little gem was not far away from our hotel and put a smile on our faces after walking through the pouring rain. The service was first class, very polite and well mannered. Nothing was to much trouble. After a short wait our food arrived, really hot breakfast with all the trimmings. Well... More

We popped in here on a wet and windy Tuesday morning based on the reviews. Yes it is on an industrial estate and yes very much a no frills cafe. But do not let this stop you visiting. It was clean and comfortable and we were made to feel very welcome. The quality and quantity of the food was excellent.... More

Excellent value breakfast in spotlessly clean café. As the many notices around their walls say "nothing is too much trouble". You can change any items you like on their set menus. Staff very friendly. Closed Sundays but we had breakfast here Saturday, Monday and Tuesday and standard was excellent every time.

Staff were really nice and helpful and the place itself was spotlessly clean and well presented. I had a 'best', which was delicious and perfectly cooked, I was expecting a bigger portion after the hype - but that's just me being a pig. On the flip side, my 3 kids shared an adult meal which came out as 3 separate... More
