Visited with my lovely daughter and made happy by food, setting and service. Lamb burger, banana bread and iced coffee all went down a treat. Great fit-out: modern, bright & clean lines. Friendly & attentive staff.

Came for lunch with 2 of my Daughters & 3 Granddaughters. Lunch was nice, drinks were good & the service was great. They had free pancakes for children on so that was a bonus. A must try for anyone in the area.
