We visited for lunch on a weekday when it was not too busy. We had a large table with a highchair away from the till so it wasn't too hot (although still warm) Between us we tried the halloumi, mushrooms on toast, breads and side...More

We've visited three times and each time the food and service is even better. My husband's favourite Eggs Benedict was not on the menu this time, but he was very impressed with his smoked salmon and scrambled egg dish. My Welsh Rarebit was even better...More

Cloth to wipe the table. Why why why do cafe proprietors allow their staff to use dirty Jay cloths to wipe tables and flick the dirt on the table all over the customers? We used to enjoy visiting this delightful shopping destination. So many unusual...More

Good service and a pleasant setting complement the tasty food at reasonable prices. We had a light lunch twice while in the area and, as long as there are enough staff on, the diner can be assured of a good experience.
