Relaxed friendly attitudes from staff which radiates right through the the home made foods and chocolates. Not only is it a feast for the stomach but also a feast for the eyes. I want to try one of every chocolate!

Dropped in for some lunch. Lucky to get a table. Some specials and decent menu selection on offer. I had the open brown homemade bread sandwich with home cooked ham with salad with a creamy mustard dressing. Delicious! The service was very smart. Highly recommended!...More

I've only eaten here once of twice and have always found the food to be excellent if a bit pricey for lunch.

A second visit comfirmed the lacking in service. Both times I ordered a coffee to come straight away (mentioning before the food), and it didn't. I cancelled my coffee the second time and my partners tea was cancelled (I presume) as well. I ordered the...More
