“Great food ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

This place had very reasonably priced food, and it's great. It could do with some music and better lighting, then it would be perfect.

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

We finally found a breakfast cafe that serves great coffee. The menu includes bacon and eggs from free range animals and it certainly shows in the flavour.
Friendly greeting and great service from one of the owners.

“Average country food served by happy staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

We dined here twice whilst staying at the nearby Swansea Motor Inn. The meals were average but filling and quite tasty. Decor was poor but the friendliness of staff made up for this.

“really average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

smelly and really average. not very friendly on arrival maybe the Easter holidays were a bit stressful .I was impressed that they had a hole row of compost bins out the back near the car park and also grow their own herbs.

“Tasty breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We had a lovely breakfast here one Sunday morning. Felt sympathy for the owner who was on her own cooking and had a bad back! It did not stop her cooking 4 very substantial and tasty breakfasts, which set us up for a long trip that day.
