“Rudeness you wouldn't believe”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I stopped by for coffee on the way to visit the Giants Causeway with 2 large groups. We had visitors from Australia and we spent approx £20 on scones and coffee. Some of the kids brought sausage rolls from next door into the restaurant only to be told we can't eat them here. We asked "just this once" but we were briskly told it was not allowed and "it's a global thing" whatever that means. We stupidly ate there as we had already bought the coffee and scones. In times of such austerity you would think they would show much better hospitality and customer service. Instead we were treated like nuisances. I certainly won't be back and wouldn't recommend it unless you like rudeness and inflexibility.

“A nice place for a snack lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Friendly staff and a good range of light food. I had a delicious lentil and bacon soup and my partner had a toasty. We shared a portion of excellent chips. All absolutely fine!

“absolutely shockingly terrible!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

had the worst meal ever, one of the waiting staff sat down to take my order - not a good impression! Food was greasy and under cooked. Prices are far to high for the standard of food i was presented with. portion sizes were very small - had about 12 chips. would not recommend at all.

“Only alright”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Maybe lunch would have been different, however for breakfast was just a greasy spoon, coffee not great and service brusque. No obvious baby changing facilities and as waitress had previously been so curt was almost afraid to ask!!
