Nice selection of cafes and good coffee. Some people were having more substantial meals - quite a fe wlocals eating there which is a good sign. Very nice service and good value.

Seafood ribbon pasta was bland and tasteless, swimming in tinned tomatoes with 3 prawns, 3 muscled and a miniscule piece of flavorless white fish.I left more than half unfinished as it was really inedible and disgusting.Over priced at £10.99.
