Popped into this place today for lunch only to be served with what looked like a carpet burger and the chips didnt look too appetizing either. Very disappointed. It's a shame because the staff are lovely.

popped in for a quick bite having walked past on many occasions. We had a shared platter which was super tasty and you really get a lot of food for your money. Nice coffee to round things off. Service was OK, speed of service was good and value for money was very good.

Ordered tuna Niçoise salad - by far the worst salad I've ever ordered. Salad consisted of tinned tuna, iceberg lettuce, greasy cold potatoes (had to leave these), over cooked green beans, hard boiled egg, dressing, and cucumber shards and doritos (?!) for decoration. I only wish I'd taken a picture. Coffee was nothing amazing. I'm surprised no one cleared our... More

Would not recommend and will not return! After waiting over an hour for our lunch we left having only had our drinks. The service was extremely slow and the staff were inattentive, with one waitress seeming very unhappy which came across as very rude.

Lovely place to eat the tea is served in glasses so it keeps very hot. The food was delicious and hot and appetising. You can sit outside if you are brave enough but they do supply blankets - what more can you ask for - perfect. Very relaxing and perfect in every way.
