This place took us by surprise. A Greek/English run cafe which sold roast lunches at a reasonable price. Food was cooked, presented and delivered very efficiently. A well run set up that offered fixed menu prices. My carbonara was delicious.

Parking just outside...if you are lucky, or a couple of carparks nearby. Pay and display, worth the two pound.
