A bit out of the way, but if you're looking to treat yourself to a decadent lunch, or a nice expensive wine or sweet treat, this is the place. Really nice selection of sandwiches, wraps and a fab deli.

I have never had a bad meal here. The food is expertly executed and very tasty. I had the mutton curry and posh sundae which was outstanding. The setting and service is also excellent. You won't be disappointed!

I love this place. The staff are friendly and helpful. The whole place is wheelchair friendly including the amazing deli where you can buy the most wonderful food gifts. Best of all, they served me kippers with poached eggs.

Hi Lunch starts at 12 noon, however if you want breakfast I would recommend getting there before 11.30am, all the produce is fresh so the later you arrive you run the risk of them not having everything...but the breakfast... More
