Popped in while passing and was very impressed. Food was tasty, service was good and not a bad price. However I did not like fact they automatically added 10% to the bill. I went for the burger and it was very nice :)

Visited for late lunch with 3 kids. Great healthy menu. There was a little mix up with one order, but the staff worked fast to make sure it was rectified. Kieron the waiter couldn't do enough for us, we would be happy to recommend and will be back.

Id never heard of this place before and my friend suggested it to me whilst we were both starving wandering around. Staff were friendly and quite laid back which i liked. The food was lovely as well and good value for money id say. Id definitely go back again.
