Had lunch in this restaurant yesterday. There was 10 people in our party. When we arrived only table free was one with 7 chairs. Staff made no attempt to seat us or find extra chairs, so I moved chairs from another table to our. Big mistake! The Manager started shouting at me for doing this! The entire restaurant could hear. Throughout our meal she was rude and obnoxious. Food was overpriced, small portions and dishes served did not even resemble their description in the menu. Avoid at all costs!

We ate breakfast here as part of our B & B stay at Tierneys Guesthouse and were blown away by the cheerful, clean and tasteful atmosphere of the restaurant. The staff was friendly and the food was great.

This place is great for breakfast, cakes and coffees but not only! The also have nice lunchtime dishes. They offer the usually difficult to find veggie breakfast and gluten free products.

It is quite spacious but cosy with an outdoor area.There is free wifi and the staff is friendly!

A very bright and spacious place with a welcome outdoor area. Coffee and cake were to a high standard and at 1430 there was still a real lunchtime buzz about the p,ace
