I had to wait awhile as I ordered a cooked lunch. Most people picked up food from the café display. I enjoyed an iced coffee while my food cooked. Its only two weeks ago but I can't remember what I ordered (I think it was...More

The queue was insufferably slow because the place is understaffed. Pile of old newspapers to wade through. I know it's adjacent to a garden centre but to have sparrows flying about inside the cafe, eating leftovers from the tables and leaving droppings on chairs that...More

Flies are a nuisance at most but while trying to eat and watching a cluster of them buzzing on the window in front of us tells me that window isn't clean. This then leads me to wonder what else isn't clean? But the food was...More

Their food was really quite good and they made a good cuppa coffee. The cake and slices we had were really delicious but. .... we did find it a tad bit expensive.
