Bland food, poor service time, too many orders taken at once. Also had part of our order given to someone else. Would avoid if visiting again 😖

Stopped here to buy ice creams for the grandchildren on Sunday bank holiday weekend. Service slow and unfriendly. We ordered 3 ice creams and by the time the third one was served, it was already melting. Will never return.More
