Had never eaten here before but did so yesterday . Ordered all day breakfast - soda bread, mushrooms, 2 sausages, 2 bacon fried egg all for £4.95. It was delicious. Very tasty and great value for money.

Used to go here regularly... thought would go back and to be frank I wish I hadn't... Ordered a sandwich, a scone and a cuppa and the total was nearly £10 - it was a rip off... food was good but not worth that much......More

Went here tonight as i used to go as a kid. Its a shame how far the place has fallen. Frozen burger and chips was not what i had in mind. The memories i had are well and truly gone!

Popped here for lunch with my parents and my two little ones - everybody had a great lunch. Kids burger and sandwich went down well and my parents chicken curry was excellent. Will definitely be back - an unexpected gem

Great dinner after a family day out. It's good traditional food at a reasonable cost. The service is excellent, very attentive.
