People have made comments about the size, decor etc of this place. I say so what. Yes it could do with some paint, yes it gets crowded. It gets busy because the food is wholesome and very reasonably priced. It is clean, the staff are really friendly and they help you decide what to have when things are in short... More

Desperate for a cuppa we called in late in the afternoon. We ordered tea and tea cakes which was served after a short wait. Hot, good value and a very pleasant Host. It's not the Ritz but for a quick cuppa, I'd go again for sure.

I find this little cafe too small. Everyone is crowded onto tables that are too big and you sit with strangers. The entire appearance of the place needs updating - it looks as if it has not been done in 30 years and had not been well decorated at the time. I have had sandwiches there which are okay. I...

A cozy little cafe on the dock front, with great slabs of fresh cake (chocolate flake cake was delicious), delicious coffee and friendly staff. They had a very tempting range for breakfast but we were only in for a (very filling) snack.

Ramsey on a Saturday was almost closed as far as restaurants were concerned by the time we were ready to eat at 2:30. Thankfully we found this one. It is totally non pretentious and has the feel of a 1950/1960 cafe. However it has two assets friendly staff and great low priced food. My crab special in a bun was... More

Following advice from other bikers we had lunch here. After a very disappointing lunch in Port Erin, this was absolutely superb. Friendly welcome with hot tea and fabulous food. My husband had crab salad and I had a prawn jacket potato. Generous portions, hot and very tasty. Would definitely recommend. ...

Gophers is an interesting place - nice food and drinks, but the decor looks a bit dated; the tables and benches a bit inflexible and the steps up would defy the less able. And the mug collection...

While we were in Ramsey on a National Holiday trip we went into this coffee shop for lunch. One of the specials was a crab bun, which we were informed was only caught on the morning. It was absolutely delicious. If ever we returned to Ramsey, Isle of Man we would certainly return as the food was very good and... More
