We loved it at this little cafe bar. Food was excellent. Well presented and very tasty. Quite an usual menu but still something for everyone. Staff were really friendly and personable and atmosphere was great. Coffee was best I've tasted (said my partner - I enjoyed tea and apple juice which was also lovely). I had pork belly and polenta... More

I often visit this place for a casual drink and food. The menu is great, I had the chorizo hash and it was spot on. I stayed for a few hours doing some work because the staff always take care of me and are very helpful. Such a nice atmosphere and just brilliant all round.

If you want an over priced greasy meal then this is the place for you, but I warn you check out the toilets first and if they don't put you off food then you deserve all you get! Avoid this place like the plague! Apart from the disgusting food the place itself must have styled itself on a 1980's benadorm... More

This is a nice bar, good food and not crazily priced. it's a nice middle ground between some of the more hipster bars and a traditional pub. I had my first date with the love of my life here and the bar staff were lovely and friendly and provided some short, impromptu bar-counselling midway through this 'interesting' date.

Nice place to go in the evening for a pint or two and some nice bar food. Fish finger butty (made with proper piece of fish, not frozen fish fingers) very nice. Pizzas quite good too. Tasty and filling. Good selection of real ales.
