We called on for lunch today on our way through to palmy. My mother took a turn and the staff here were absolutely incredible. They offered water. Sorted a seat and then made us tea on the house.

Popped in for a takeaway coffee and a salad to go. Great salad and good size portions. The coffee was good and lots to look at while I waited. Busy so make sure you're not in a rush. Bread is amazing too. Good find

Had lunch here. It was quite busy, but it always is. The food was really good and service was great. There's a reason why it's so popular! Reasonably priced. Very enjoyable. There is a chance you may not get a table so bear that in mind.
