We stopped here for coffee and cake, went to the deli and had a lovely Cortado coffee and Bran muffin. The place is really relaxing and worth a visit. The staff are polite but a tad slow but hey we were not in a hurry.

We did their picnic lunch--incredible! The food was truly delicious and beyond plentiful. We had so much food we gave a huge bag of "leftovers" to our driver; there must have been 6 pounds of really good food left. Overall, an amazingly good deal!

Can’t speak highly enough of the food and restaurant! Food was incredible (we had squid pasta, chicken, steak strips). There is also a lovely garden. Recommend you sit outside on the terrace. Definitely book ahead.
