Friendly atmosphere and freshly prepared great tasting food, You can have a breakfast here for only £2.50, it is only a small seating area so would advise to either book or come early to secure a table.

Visited here for the first time. Really tasty Sunday lunch with plenty of vegetables and homemade gravy. There was also a good selection of homemade deserts which looked scrumptious. The staff were very friendly and welcoming I will be visiting again.
