While the place is packed the food is average. The meals appeared to be smothered in butter during the cooking as well as all over the bread my bacon and eggs were served with. Really bland with no flavour with weak coffees. Have told family and friends not to dine here as overpriced average food.

Seafood chowder was fine, as were the fries. Excellent Moa on tap. The service was assiduous and efficient.

We came here for lunch and absolutely loved it. The food is delicious while very affordable and the restaurant itself is beautiful inside. I'd definitely recommend one of the puddings, especially the banoffee pie!

Had coffee and a cake it was terrific. The lake views while you dined was fantastic. The staff were very friendly. The tables on the other side of road great.

2 older ladies went for lunch as a treat today. It was so disappointing. The soup had a lovely flavour but between the 2 plates there was only a couple bits of seafood. The soup was sent back as it was cold. Waitresses were lovely

This place should have been better, but it wasn't. Some of the staff were nice, friendly and helpful. Others didn't want to know. Food - very average. The toast came out burnt and was sent back for a second attempt. I had eggs Benedict and it managed to get to "ok" but wasn't especially tasty (not sure what they did... More

Had breakfast on a Saturday morning with my husband and friend. Unfortunately we were in a hurry and this place is more based towards a relaxed start to the day, however the food and coffee were lovely
