A lovely airy cafe with a good selection of food. Children's chicken nuggets were real chicken, no issue to serve Cullen skink with a cheese scone instead of bread and smoked salmon sandwich complimented with a lovely lemon mayonnaise. Amazingly quick time for food to be served. Highly recommended.

Visiting for few days. This was ideal for meeting, so much so, we just kept going back! For morning coffee, for lunch on different days. Staff friendly & helpful. The Mac n Cheese & Fish & Chips lovely - clean plates sent back. Dietary options clearly displayed.

Haven't been here for a while so took my Mum and Brother for a spot of lunch. Great homemade soup, lovely sandwiches and tasty Mac & Cheese. Service always very good and great value for money. Highly recommended for lunch and very consistent.

Good food at a very reasonable price. Customer service is not sophisticated but is kind and agile. It also has good dessert options but I didn't try them.

I had the pulled pork for lunch and it tasted like I expected it to. Really enjoyed it. Hubby had the fish and he said it was really nice and fresh.
