“Food needs to get better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012 via mobile

Had 2 mes here. One was a lunchtime steak and onion baguette. Plenty of onions, hardly any steak unfortunately. Breakfast however was much worse, the cheapest sausages and straight out of the microwave burn your mouth scrambled egg! Bacon was okay but a very average breakfast. Great potential however

“Nice little place, great food for a good price - could do with more servers though!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

Went here today for lunch with the family, had bacon cheeseburger and chips followed by banoffee pie. Food was really great, mains are things like panini's, baguettes, sandwiches, burgers and a few main meals. Price is around £5-8 for mains, so pretty good and the food is nice. My only concern would be that it gets really busy at lunchtime and they could maybe do with 1 or 2 more servers to help the two ladies who were rushing around. Definately check out the Jail House!

We go there often. Breakfasts are fantastic and good choice for lunch with specials changing daily.
Staff are all very friendly and welcoming, and its nice to see the boss/owner out and about chatting to people.
Very clean and well kept. Really nice atmosphere.
Love it x
