My parents were here recently & the young inexperienced staff left them feeling disappointed!! They arrived a little after the early bird had finished on a thursday evening, so it was not too busy!

Have been here twice, once for breakfast with my wife, and then for the early bird menu with family. A great choice on menu, and the staff are great, intentive yet not encroaching. This is a great place, with a buzzing atmosphere.

We looked over the menu which was very limited and I decided on the Ulster fry and my wife had a toasted sandwich with chips and salad. I was quite hungry and looking forward to my... More
