Omg I have just had the best food and service I have ever had in this place. I've past this place a million times but never been in. Well worth a visit.

We had just dropped our son off in Watford and had a little wander around, this place looked nice so we thought we would have lunch. It was not a mistake! If you are in this area you really should give it a try. It goes from being a daytime cafe (licensed) into an evening restaurant with tablecloths, candles etc.... More

We discovered this place months ago and visit for lunch at least once a week since then. They serve good, tasty food and there are plenty of options, including vegetarian meals. Omelettes, panini and eggs florentine are among our favourite dishes. The staff is always very welcoming and friendly. Highly recommended! Great value for money.

I was recommended to try this restaurant by some girlfriends. We decided to meet up there last week for lunch and it lived up to expectations. Service was very good and the choice of food was excellent. There is a car park behind the restaurant, so no problem parking and there is a garden restaurant so you can enjoy the... More
