The decor really let's this diner down because the food and service were great. Arrived at 3.30 expecting the lunch rush to be over and still had to wait over 5 minutes for a table. A good sign if it's that popular. My daughter loved her veggie burger; my husband the moussaka and I had a generous sized jacket potato.... More

After two poor experiences at this restaurant in the last four years we visited as a last resort. Actually it turned out to be OK. New staff and management? We only had salads which were generous servings. Other diners main meals seemed also generously sized. Maybe we will visit again and have a full meal.

Brought a group of young people in for hot drinks, the most luxurious hot chocolate we've ever had, great prices and a warm welcome. We didn't eat but the food looked amazing.

This is my favourite place to eat, it might not look like anything from the outside but the food is remarkable.

.......perhaps not! But certainly the worst service I have experienced in a long time! Don't get me wrong the food is nice. It's not outstanding, if you go in with fairly low expectations you will leave happy. I also have a feeling the menu hasn't changed in a number of years. It's quite clear from the onset that the owners... More

Went for breakfast in this lovely little diner set on the edge of dartmoor, food was excellent I had the big breakfast , my wife had the vegetarian breakfast both meals were lovely, and good value. Service was good and the waiting staff friendly. Can get very busy at lunchtime so may be advisable to book.

We have been here many times at different times of the day. There is always a good selection of food and beverages and friendly helpful service. We particularly get led astray by their tempting looking cakes and desserts. It can get quite busy and at these times you may have to wait longer but you can always amuse yourself by... More

Very good food and plenty of it. Friendly service. Prices are very competitive. Well worth a visit, but, try not to go at lunchtime, it gets very busy. It may be advisable to book a table in advance, just to be sure.

We came here for my Mum's birthday lunch and were really impressed. The welcome was warm and table all ready for us to be seated. The orders were taken promptly by a friendly waitress and the food came pretty quickly too. The menu has mainly "English" fayre on it which is what makes it so popular I think. I had... More
