“Good food and fast service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

We have been here many times but not for a while. We visited on a Saturday lunchtime, it was rainy hard but the cafe was full. We went in and found the last table and the waitress was with us immediately. We ordered drinks while we looked at the menu. I had an enormous burger and chips and my husband had the roast lamb. Both meals were excellent and really good value.
The cafe has been refurbished, is spotlessly clean despite the number of diners and the food arrived quickly. No frills but well priced, excellent food which after all is what you go to a cafe for.

“Good Food and Friendly Service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

This cafe/restaurant changed hands earlier this year and there were a lot of staff changes. However, the new owners have spent a lot of money on refurbishing the premises and it is now very clean and smart. It offers meals from burgers to roasts and the quality of the food is very good. If you want a quick and easy meal when in town or just a tea or coffee then this is a very acceptable pleace to visit.

“Typical English Cafe - consistently great food though!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

This place is perfect for casual cafe dining - no frills, but the food is great as is the service. I've been here quite a few times, and they do typical cafe /English all-day breakfast foods, but also daily roasts, baked potatoes and so on. The service has always been quick and the food hot. The food items are of a high quality too, for a very reasonable price. Little things like using good quality baked beans, decent portions and tea bags make the visit worth it alone: usually with cheap and cheerful places, you can taste where they've cut costs - but not here. Staff have always been attentive too.
