We came here when it first opened a few years and were not impressed, but decided today to give it another go. It wasn't busy at all but the service was slow. My mother told the waitress what she wanted and the waitress seemed confused and asked if she wanted a pizza. My mother told told her twice and made... More

The food was very flavourful. I had gotten the carbonara which left me so full. Their crepes are also spot on too

Menu not very interesting. Ordered panini that was dry snd was supposed to come with salad that turned out to be a small piece of dank lettuce. Service slow with surly staff. You have to go to counter to pay although they don't tell you this. Complained to no avail. However the rude waitress should perhaps consider she's not the... More

We use this place quite often, taking the kids with us. The service there is very good and the prices are reasonable, good value for money. The food is well presented, cooked and good portion sizes. Overall a very good place to eat, but be warned, it does get very busy during office lunch hours, but that just shows how... More

Popped into this place today for lunch only to be served with what looked like a carpet burger and the chips didnt look too appetizing either. Very disappointed. It's a shame because the staff are lovely.

popped in for a quick bite having walked past on many occasions. We had a shared platter which was super tasty and you really get a lot of food for your money. Nice coffee to round things off. Service was OK, speed of service was good and value for money was very good.

Ordered tuna Niçoise salad - by far the worst salad I've ever ordered. Salad consisted of tinned tuna, iceberg lettuce, greasy cold potatoes (had to leave these), over cooked green beans, hard boiled egg, dressing, and cucumber shards and doritos (?!) for decoration. I only wish I'd taken a picture. Coffee was nothing amazing. I'm surprised no one cleared our... More

Would not recommend and will not return! After waiting over an hour for our lunch we left having only had our drinks. The service was extremely slow and the staff were inattentive, with one waitress seeming very unhappy which came across as very rude.
