Reviewed yesterday NEW

Nothing to write home about here. Good range of food but nothing that stood out as a "must try". We had baked potatoes, soup and paninis between the four of us...all very bland and uninteresting. Service ok.

this place has gone from a small garden centre to a major shopping mall. You can get anything here. At a price. Its not low budget but is definetely worth a visit

The food was excellent and the seating was very spacious and although busy there was still plenty of room. However the young lady who served me my 7 items... More
