This place does not look like much from the outside, but the food on offer is very good. The menu is basic enough (breakfast and lunch food), but the quality is very good. Had the tuna melt, and I have to say it was one of the tastiest and most well-presented tuna melts I've ever had. The scones were good... More

The lady serving politely asked if there was a problem with them, I had no intention of making a deal about them as the whole experience was... More
