My sister and I ate here and it was a lovely experience. Very polite and friendly staff. Breakfast was quite a big portion and fab value for money. My sister is vegetarian and was very pleased that they substituted the meat and didn't just take it away. The caramel shortcake was so good that we brought some back to England for our mum! (The women working didn't laugh too much at this!) Definitely worth a try .

Great value breakfast at this time of year.Well presented, beans were especially good a must to set you up for the rest of the day.Had a good selection of deals for their evening meals and could see from other customers that they looked good and were being enjoyed.I decided to try the steak and ale pie and was disappointed.Dont let that put you off and go and visit even if its just for a cofee and a chat.They also have a pc free of charge ,,handy if u need your transfer time or facebook.

Reasonable for the price
Chilli good, fish and chips were frozen fish lasagne a bit rubbery
Breakfast very good value and tasty
Found the beer expensive at 2.50 euro. through the day. Next door the price was 1.50 euro. Put me off going back and having a brunch
Price maybe needs adjusted

Our beer prices are in line with other restaurants. Next door at 1.50€ is a kebab/burger take away with no indoor seating or in fact anything much else to offer!! (ie about the same ambiance as a supermarket where the beer is also cheap!!) And now their large beer is 1.25€ in the winter - known as a loss leader, to get people in and to hope they then buy something else. We do good deals on food!! Im sorry you didn't enjoy the homemade Lasagne - the Pasta sheets are made by Knorr and maybe it was the melted cheese on top that gave it a rubbery feel?

The best British breakfast in a foreign country we've ever found. The staff are friendly and make you feel welcome. We didn't visit at any other time of day so can't comment on the rest of the day's menus as we went out of our way for breakfast but I'm sure it would be just as good.
