Love their freshly squeezed fruit and veggie juices. Prawn and chips beautifully presented. Mushrooms on toast is creamy and full of mushrooms. Just wish everything wasn't so expensive.

Great refreshments, ideal setting, and good overall service. Have always enjoyed stopping for a quick milkshake with the kids, or having a coffee, amidst picking up kids on the school run.
