An unassuming cafe restaurant behind a filling station but with an extensive eating area within, all very clean and bright; extremely helpfful staff and good quick service. Well worth a visit if you are passing OR regular visits as we prefer. Good value for money....More

Very poor service. Plenty of staff, but got the distinct feeling they didnt want to serve. It was lunch time so no excuse for wanting to close. When the food arrived it was ok when they got the order correct.
