Really friendly staff and yum food. Had no qualms about adjusting the food to make it vegan friendly - which can be rare and is appreciated.

We love coming here as the staff are so friendly and accommodating. The tagines are spicy and full of flavour. Their breakfasts are good too. We also enjoy their French rose.

The quality of food for breakfast spoke for itself. Generous serves of an impressive quality. What made this visit more impressive was a call to refund the voucher which was accidentally forgotten to have been taken off the bill. Now that's service for you! Recommend...More
