Lovely "super burger" for me and the falafel wraps for my wife. Outstanding. Not cheap I admit but worth it. Quick service and a fantastic location. Moaners should look at the prices BEFORE ordering not moan about it afterwards. You get what you pay for....More

Prices are crazy. Fish & chip or burgers are £16. Standard pub grub served at twice the price. Location nice if weather is up to sitting outside, otherwise a rip off
