A great cafe. The tables aren't overly close, some comfy sofa seating, good menu and friendly staff. Spent a few hours here on a rainy day while my wife was next door in the archives researching family history. Good coffee, breakfast and light lunch menu. WiFi good. No hassle to move on. Well done - clearly a local meeting place... More

Good food when it's good but some times cold and overlooked!!! Lovely inside and nicely decorated! Staff not all that helpful when asked how's your meal, I explained it was cold and then the boy just walked away and said we are busy! But all in all a cheap meal and if your lucky it's tasty and good value

Was a regular til we moved, excellent service and great food at great prices. Staff are the best. They look after you as soon as you walk through the door and the food is so nice, and it fills you up. Great for nights you don't want to cook.

Not sure why but we were the only people eating in this place! There were two people sat drinking in the window but the guy had atrociously bad language and was constantly on his mobile (on speakerphone) shouting a lot of obscenities! However they left before we got our meals and that helped the atmosphere a lot! :) The food... More

looked ok from outside but unfortunately, we picked a day the waitress was holding an "open crèche", this reflected on the time we had to wait on our food, plus the sandwiches were dry i.e. she must have been so busy she forgot the butter!! Her excuse was that the schools finished early!!, when I worked, I arranged childcare and... More

Unfortunately, our lunchtime meal was disappointing. I had the chicken in breadcrumbs with chips which was obviously cheap and frozen. We felt this was very overpriced (£9.95) which, ordinarily, is a reasonable price for such a dish but not when presented in this manner. Our draught cokes were flat and others in the restaurant at the time were also complaining... More

The waitress was very sweet - she was attentive and pleasant to speak to. The food was fairly good, unfortunately they had a problem with the beer taps, which we were quite disappointed about.
