Bustling and busy this seemed like the place to go for lunch. Loud environment as many people and all talking loudly in order to be heard. Service reasonably prompt considering how busy they were. The Salmon tasted divine and had a lovely flavour but was a little dry as it was overcooked. Salad was fresh and well dressed.

Answer Yes. The food was really good. Fast to the table and reasonably priced. This is a large Cafe for such a small town yet there were lots in there. Only comment I have is that the lady serving could have been a little less surly. Maybe she had had a bad day.

If you like offensive language by staff member while you are dining this is the place to go. I wont be back that is for sure. The staff member had one side of her hair razor cut and was to involved in her discription of her weekend activitys to notice there where several customers in the cafe.

As a general rule, we stop at the Table Talk for lunch as we pass through Gore. We normally bacon, eggs & hash browns. They would have the best bacon we have tasted anywhere. Staff are always pleasant and service is always great.
