“Forging ahead.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

A great place for a huge breakfast. Sit amongst the flowers outside but watch the crows don't pinch bits of your meal, it's too good to give away.
Good service from friendly staff. Reasonably priced with plenty of room.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

went for a bit of lunch with my wife recently before a walk around altamont gardens..firstly i would like to say this place deserves real credit for sourcing it food locally..im a real believer in that and fair play to them.i cant really complain about the experience either..service was professional and quick,and the food was really nice,big portions too,i had a paninni and my wife had a beef sandwich,we had 2 coffees and it was 20 quid includind a 3ish euro tip.
