We've been too many times to count and never once disappointed with the quality of our meals. Breakfast prosunto with scrambled eggs are incredible and mini bunnies chows are delicious. The flat breads and desserts are also worth trying. All good really

The overall experience is something you do not find anymore. You will eat excellent food, have excellent service and when you leave you feel good that your hard earned money was well spent.

Had a lovely lunch here. Beef cheese burger with chips. Beef very tasty and burgers had a nice sauce. Free parking and toilets in the centre. Seating in and outside under umbrellas. Staff very friendly but can be a little over attentive at times.
