That said the sweet dessert waffles that 3 of us... More

Visited mid week and were able to get a table in the main building and without queuing. The food was delicious, good value and the service was great. The chilli con carne waffle is a definite favourite!

I come back here a few times a year and I live in the US so it's a long way to come but worth it! It's simple but so perfectly yummy, my advice is share a savoury waffle then get your own sweet one! And try the specials

The only real problem is deciding between savoury or sweet. My children love the sweet and I always go for savoury. Both are equally fabulous. Ratatouille with garlic cream cheese is my favourite. Our bill was £50 for the four of us. The setting is lovely too. I would recommend it.

Lovely breakfast, as usual. Great coffee. Service a little slow but not annoyingly so, which isn't the norm for this great restaurant.

I'd heard great things about this place, my sister and her boyfriend visit regularly. The venue is nice, staff friendly and menu extensive - but I was left a little disappointed with my lunch. Rather soggy waffle under heaps of cheese sauce (too much) If I go back, id try the chilli con carne, it looked much more appetising too.... More

I didn't know that waffles can be paired with different things. The place has a home vibe.The hot dutch apple is to die for. We'll definitely come back.

Yum Yum Yum! these waffles are delicious! never had a bad one and I've tried lots. great for lunch or dinner. I would recommend getting a savoury and a sweet one if going for dinner or you might still be hungry. Not a place to go if you don't like waffles. They are dog friendly and it gets very busy...
