Okay, if you go to this place you must have a go at eating their giant tea-cakes, those things are gorgeous and massive, seriously.... massive. The staff are friendly and you can tell because the atmosphere in the place is warm and friendly and that is before you get to the food or even the setting. It is a lovely... More

Lovely breakfast. Most of us didn't like mushrooms, but the waitress was very happy to substitute them with another item. No charge, as in some eateries and no trouble. Service was very good. Would recommend it. Very reasonably priced.

Corner restaurant with good atmosphere and busy. They open for breakfast at 8 a.m., very good value at £11.00 for two beautifully cooked breakfasts, toast and coffee, tea or juice, will certainly visit again and can recommend. Friendly, efficient staff.
