Despite several visits to this cafe it now is very outdated in its menu. Shame, as the garden space is inviting in the warmer months. The menu hasn't been updated for years and even with a few blackboard specials is still limited. Difficult to order...More

Had lunch here previously and the food and service was good - not so today. After waiting 10-15 minutes for a waitress we decided it might be quicker to go to the register and order our meal rather than waiting for a waitress. Then after...More

I've just read through other reviews and it appears many people have the same issue with the cafe at Rodney's. Rodney's is actually our favourite nursery and all the staff in THAT part of the business are wonderful, but the cafe really lets the side...More

It's a nice place for lunch, many tables inside and even more outside. I noticed it has a children's playground and good seating around for parents. The food is good, a bit pricey though.

I took my elderly mother for lunch mid week. This place has really gone downhill since the last time I visited. The last few times it was good (not great), this time it was disappointing from the moment we arrived. The woman at the counter...More
