Stopped here for a light lunch on a Saturday and had a very good lunch. Service was very good and the prices very reasonable would recommend and certainly use again.

Had lunch here on on Saturday 24/3/2017. One of the best lunches I've had in a long time. I got the recipe for the salad dressing from the manager/owner, unfortunately I can't find where I put it on my phone an can't remember all the ingredients. Would really appreciate a repeat.

This is a favourite place to share lunch with friends. Nice sandwhiches and relaxing atmosphere. Service is good and equally free to relax and chat. We keep going back which says it all. Well worth a visit.

Stopped for afternoon tea, a perfect venue, easy to find, good parking and clean restaurant. The manager was a fellow named Kenny, who was very friendly and offered good advice on the area.

I have checked the cctv and also our electronic ordering system and the wait for your food was 29 minutes, which is still slightly longer than we aim for however 4 customers in front of you had ordered fish and the fryers were in use, creating this slight back up...
