Scrambled eggs on “toast” was a massive disappointment. Toast consisted of 2 crouton-sized slithers, and egg was overcooked. Staff were nice enough and apologised, but offered no recompense. The only saving grace is the frontage and lovely location.

Yes I think there is, it's always a good idea to call ahead to find out as some places do have a ramp that wheelchairs can use, but not all places have this setup for disability access.
