Cheap small portions and not very hot. Long wait and we were the only ones in there. Sent it back as sausage didn't look cooked and were just warm. Wouldn't go again.

We went there for lunch as a family of 5. We ordered burgers and chips. Took forever to arrive and was rather mediocre. Some of the cutlery was dirty. Meal wasn’t cheap either for what we got.

50 minutes to get our food on the table : fish and chips (no more than acceptable) and a so called "burger" : bread cheese meat. That's all. Even Mc Donalds' are better. Won't come back.

Compared to another cafe near the front, the breakfast was as good. The difference in price for the same was £8.50. While some people are really flush alot are not. Going here could help put the money towards other things. Very friendly. Excellent breakfast.

We both had very good main courses, slightly runny creme brûlée the only downside to the food. Otherwise it’s newly opened and trying to do so without breaking the bank. So wine is limited (as pointed out by another review) but what they do offer...More
