Had a handcrafted burger, bloody ansom! Some guy commented on a curry he'd had while I was eating so I'll come back another time for that. Lady who served was happy and lady who cooked seemed happy too. That happiness showed in the food and service! More expensive than McShyte but a million times better! Well done ladies!

Called in for lunch. The food was good - we had the specials (moules) but let down by disorganised front of house. You need to go to the counter to order. We were told after sitting at a table for 15 minutes. Premium pricing.

I know that a few friends have stopped going in as the lunches... More

Nice coffee, polite service but oh no atmosphere. Have visited this venue before and hoped for an improvement, if you require peace and a restful break this is the place for you.

Went for breakfast this morning at 10.15 am. Fairly busy but not all tables taken. Went to order and asked for scrambled egg on my breakfast (I am pregnant therefore unable to eat runny eggs) was told they couldn't do me scrambled egg as they were too busy (scrambled eggs are also on the menu so it is not like...

Called in here today and ordered fish and chips and a cup of tea. Good service, really clean and the food was served really quickly. The staff were cheerful and polite and prices keen. If your going by call in and give it a try I am sure that you won't be disappointed.

stopped here for lunch with my mum. First visit. I was very impressed with the menu as it had more than other menus catering for vegetarians. The seating inside is spacious. It is very clean and bright. Very lovely lady served us. We both opted for jacket potatoes which comes with side salad which was fresh and the meal was... More
