Popped in late afternoon with the kids as we were all peckish after strolling around Christchurch. Very helpful staff. I had classic burger, served on olive wood dish, nicely presented. Kids enjoyed a veggie pastie and Cornish pastie. A plate of chips to share. All food nicely presented. Good value will go again.

Terrible breakfast, didn't bother to ask if there where any allergies, then when informed that there was he took the breakfast away and didn't talk to us for the rest of the time we where in the place. Really disgusting customer service and the food the others ate was small portions and cold at best.

Food and service was very good had the breakfast special all served on a nice hot plate. The only disappointment was the ketchup Says Heinz on the dispenser but sadly a cheap alternative 😗 Would certainly return when here next.

Popped in for a late lunch. I had the "classic burger" which was of excellent quality beef and cooked to order. It was imaginatively served on a board of olive wood, came with a generous garnish and was extremely tasty. Chips (which cost extra) were also good.
