Used to eat here every time we went shopping. Big portions of meat on the BBQ sandwiches which were outdoor cooked on oak, very tasty. I havn't been for a long time now.

Porter Street is now an inside restaurant. They have many of the same meals they served outside on Porter, plus some excellent salads & pasta dishes.
