Came here for breakfast Monday morning, service friendly and prompt only waited 10 mins for our pancakes. The food did not disappoint, happy to recommend as relaxed meal. Note as at April 2018 cash only.

Hi Warren, thanks for your review. Unfortunately some of the points you stated are untrue.. the cream is fresh whipped cream, which we can prove if you wish, the marshmallows are melted, as I don't think non melted marshmallows would be very nice next to...More

Located along Elephant Pass, a winding stretch of road en route to St Mary's, this restaurant provided a welcome break from the drive with its lovely pancakes.
