The salmon was too salty, overpriced and service not good. The soup was ok, but didn't have much flavor.

I ALWAYS come here for their buttermilk pancakes. They're delicious and the staff are so friendly and inviting. You always feel like you're at home when you come here. Really great value too for the quality of the food and the service.

We had the butternut squash soup (excellent) with treacle bread (very good) and a huge Ceasar salad (Good). The burnt wood stout was a nice menu option and the proseco was excellent. The service was fast, friendly, and efficient.

Friendly staff, super food. The metro special has a bit of everything. Also a nice place to have a coffee outside as it is sheltered.

Nice spot off to the side of the busy city centre. Quick and friendly service with a nice little selection that covers all the basis! 4 stars only because i had the breakfast butty and the bacon was very dry so was obviously pre cooked......More
