Good breakfast, good service. Only thing was didn't have pastries but that's just my preference. We got a good table and could get a high hair for my nephew

Lovely family lunch. Everyone pleased with their choices. Sharon (Ethel) our waitress was lovely and even though she was busy took a family photograph. Would come back if in the area.

Another restaurant where the reviews weren't great but we chanced it anyway. Food was very good, service was very good and the overall feel of the restaurant was really good too. Booking a table on line helped too

Pleasant staff. Good steak and chicken. Salad bar was uninspiring and several pots full of water. The place to come if you want a quick fill.

Came here again this week. As usual excellent. Tried the beetroot and halloumi burger which I would definitely have again and the chicken was fantastic. Well Done!
