After struggling to find somewhere family friendly with proper food (sorry not really a fan of Costa and the likes) we found this place. The food was very nice and well priced. The people were so friendly and polite. The atmosphere was relaxing and the amenities very clean. The Homemade burgers were lush and the kids enjoyed their spaghetti bolognese... More

What a great little cafe this is. Visited several times and today's visit was just as good as the first. Egg mayo and bacon on granary plus fries for about a fiver. Tasty, fresh and great value.

This is a well run traditional cafe with some interesting twists, the produce is always top notch nd the service is very good attentive and efficient. I would recommend their all day breakfast but only if you are hungry!!! Great for a fry up and cup of tea at any time of day

Stopped by for a drink & snack. The milkshake I had was well made, and exceeds many I have tried elsewhere. The choice of snacks was excellent - and will be returning to sample their main menu soon. Staff extremely courteous ! A place to try !

You will not be disappointed good English food all day. I have always found the service good and polite. I have been using tis restaurant for a good number of years (more than I care to admit to) staff stay working there and you can get to know them.

Been here twice now and both times , food is great but I've had to wait for SOOOO long to get my food. So disappointing. Customer service is great but some staff can't put a smile on their face

I am so sorry that you felt you had to wait too long for your food but am glad that you enjoyed the food once it arrived. Of course, during busy periods, there may be a wait which we do advise to customers as soon as we feel a wait is likely; something which is not always easy to calculate.... More

Sadly I can't say I will bother going again, for the second time in three weeks I sat down outside and waited to be served, only to have the waitress come out look about clear one table, and walk back in, twenty two min later I gave up and went elsewhere . Both visits have been the same, it used... More

Dear Sir, I am most astonished that you sat outside for at least a full twenty-two minutes without being served when absolutely anyone else would have ventured inside to announce their presence! It is also upsetting to hear your assumption that I would rather chat then serve when actually I am on my feet for 10 hours a day being... More

Visited this place a couple of times now. Staff very friendly and accommodating to adjusting the menu to suit. Asked whether hot or cold milk required with coffee. Haven't heard that asked before. Normally have to ask. Haven't eaten here, but food looked lovely. Decor could do with a freshen up though.

Thank you very much, We all agree that the decor needs freshening and as soon as we have some spare money, shall do so! We hope that you visit us again so that you can sample our food :) More
