I went here with my Hubby on a foggy Monday for an early lunch. The Cafe was lovely and warm due to the cooking area being in the middle of the room. There were only a handful of customers in at the time. The one and only waitress took our order of a special breakfast, cottage pie, bowl of chunky... More

My son and I live in the next town away, we popped in while shopping. Had the small breakfast, he had the full breakfast. There were 5 tables occupied. Took over half an hour to serve our breakfast. It wasn't that busy, I don't understand why it took so long. Not even an apology, as for the price? Over what... More

For main, I had a special of Sea Bass, Chorizo, Pan fried new potatos and spring onions with a pesto sauce. For dessert, I had pancakes. All the food was excellent for me and the rest... More

We arrived on Saturday night, Not too busy. Four of us for dinner, Food was ok but nothing special and overpriced for what you got. The service was terrible. We finished our main meal and waited and waited for the waitress. The couple on the next table somehow managed to attract the attention of the waitress, she cleared their plates... More

We found this place after patrolling the full length of the main street comparing posted menus. The welcome could not have been better and the food is excellent. We selected from the "Evening Specials" board and returned two more evenings. In all we had six different meals over the three visits and would have no hesitation of going again should... More
