We stopped here for a quick lunch - pannis and coffee. All very nice, chips were a little greasy but the cafe itself is very pleasant. The bill came to £20 for two people which we thought was a little pricey.

The place is charming and well situated. Out of season when we were there it's been quite crowded. I had a baked potato with cheddar cheese an der it was absolutely disappointing. Neither the potato nor the cheese had any taste ! It really was a waste of money !

We have been to this restaurant several times and often take visitors there. For the second year in succession we went for lunch on my birthday. Prices are reasonable and the food is good home cooked style. It does get very busy and the tables are tightly packed but the food and the friendly helpful service make up for that.... More

The cafe is cozy and decorated really nice. I had American style pancakes with bacon and maple syrup. Also a chocolate milkshake. The food was very good and the service was fast and friendly.

This restaurant is a delight to visit. Has a wonderful atmosphere, the food is very good and the staff bare absolutely charming. The only drawback is the very small car park although that is not a major problem as there are two large Pay and Display carparks nearby.
