Lovely place to eat had a Full English nothing to complain about. Lovely setting, was a bit breezy when we went (no reflection on the restaurant obviously) it's a place that "does exactly what it says on the tin" plan on returning in the future. Very Good

This place is known in my family as Pinky and Perkys and is a must visit when ever our grandchildren visit. In fact we visit often when they are not here but don't tell them. The full English breakfast is great value for money and so yum. Highly recommended.

Just had a very nice breakfast here. Lovely outside seating area so we could sit with our dog and really good selection of traditional British grub. Had a full English and also scrambled eggs on toast. Carer for gluten free which is what I am so that was a real bonus. Quick and friendly service.

We nipped in for breakfast one chilly morning and what a beautiful breakfast it was! The food arrived quickly and was all made with high quality ingredients. We couldn't fault anything and the pricing was also very good.
