Went here for a late breakfast clutching my copy of the paper and in need of a bit of peace and quiet. Friendly staff who first brought me over a good cup of black coffee and then a plate of breakfast. Perfectly cooked and with the tastiest hash browns I've had in a long time. I was even brought another... More

Had lunch here it was awful! One of the strip lights kept flickering which was very annoying.Ordered from the 'specials' board my other half had the pie with chips, peas and gravy and I ordered the cottage pie with crusty bread. When the food arrived it did not look very appetising the cottage pie was covered in melted cheese obviously... More

Came straight here after a morning flight, the bacon sandwich was delicious and tea for two came in a huge huge pot. Couldn't have been better

We visited this place early afternoon for lunch. Inside it is minimalist but very clean. There is not a huge selection on the menu, but there is something for everybody. When the food arrived it was well presented and very tasty. I can recommend the homemade steak pie, it was lovely. Good value for money.

Had the full breakfast for £6:95, which seems about the normal price for the IOM (i.e. more expensive than the mainland). This is no new age bistro, just a simple locals cafe with decent food and service. A pot of tea with the breakfast rather than a single tea-bag mug would have been better.

Really, really enjoyed the crab salad, fresh, colourful and tasty. My other half had the ham and cheese toastie with salad and crisps. Also enjoyed it very much. Had a latte and chamomile tea. Great food at a good price with friendly service. Tables were basic, windows needed cleaning but the food gets this 5 stars in our books.
