Excellent food, freshly cooked. Staff were attentive and nothing was to much trouble. As a vegi the options were ok, I asked for a change to a dish and they accommodated. Good value, lovely and clean, friendly staff.

We stumbled upon this restaurant on a Friday evening and were lucky enough to get a table outside. The food was great (mostly pizza/pasta dishes - we had pizzas and they were lovely). The staff are very attentive and professional. There is a lovely atmosphere, especially outside which is well heated with music playing.

We only stopped for a coffee and to get out of the rain. Plenty of seating inside and out. Outside seating is sheltered and has blankets. It was so nice that we had planned to come back for dinner one night, but didn't get around to it. Good service and polite staff.

Popped in for a coffee and cake. Thought the cakes at £5.25 were a little on the steep side. A large choice of desserts and cheesecake. The 4 of us made different choices and the consensus was excellent. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Very pleasant service.
