The interior was refurbished about 2 years ago and was beautifully done with good taste and quality furniture and materials. The staff were very accommodating and friendly and the breakfast was superb with...

We too had a Groupon voucher for Dinner, but I had been at least 4 times before whether coffee, tea or Sunday lunch we have never been disappointed each time has been excellent. Lovely waiting staff, lovely menu choice and over all just great. Lovely atmosphere busy but calm so lovely to see.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner... A great place to eat or enjoy the view. A quaint little place with a menu that accommodates for all. Our recent visit was for breakfast and due to the reputation and service provided, If we had arrived any later we would of struggled to get a seat!! 9:30am and the place was full to the brim....
