Celebrated a friends birthday there with lunch, mid week. First disappointment- we were not told it was BYO.
The staff were not smiling or happy and made no effort.
I was told the soup was vegetarian but upon pushing the miserable waitress she found out it had chicken stock in it.
There was one vegetarian item and no vegan items.
The veggie burger was bland and expensive for what I got. No-one else was pleased with their meals either.
The place offered poor value for money, poor service but spectacular views. Why would I go back? I could take a picnic and enjoy these views and have a much better experience.

we were invited there by our grandson to celebrate his girlfriends 30th birthday and their engagement,the venuehad been booked approx two weeks before, they had requested views for the tables , there was also about 10 children, who by the way were very well behaved,upon arrival they had given the table to other people, so the views were lost,and we were seated at the top of the floor near the childrens playground, we all accepted that, next the ordering of the food for such a large crowd was pretty poor, and therefore the waiting time was around an hour and a half, by this time the kids were restless, maybe a plate of fairy bread would have kept them calm, if it had have been a licensed restuarant, we would have been drunk.
By the time we received our food it was hot and reasonable, i am not saying i wouldn't go back, but it is lacking, it looks like a function centre, not a cafe, i think they should loose the eighties look and catch up with the trend, people want to go there for reasonable meal and it looks like you are waiting for the bridal party. i don't wish to be mean,however i think the management should take alook around at successful cafes,he has a prime position and could make a very good eating house there.

We went there on Sunday and our order was lost so we didn't get our meal till over an hour late. We ordered two meals gluten free and both people had a reaction to the meal. The other people on the table didn't enjoy their meal at all and the wait wasn't worth it. If you have to eat gluten free don't go there. It was a real shame as we went there to celebrate a birthday.
