Been here a few times and every time felt that this business needs to up the game. Overall a good experience- nice setting of indoor, outdoor and carriage seating, a decent menu., friendly staff and view. However, when you look for details to rate, few...More

Disappointing. Good location and parking. Entry is through a garden centre. Two couples visited for lunch mid week. Trade was slow with only two other tables occupied. We ordered four meals and the first three came after quite a while (too long, I felt) and...More

Visited for a light snack. Lots of choices, both counter and blackboard menu, including a number of gluten free options. We chose a savoury muffin, savoury scone and hot drinks. It was all served quickly, and was very tasty. One very small thing missing was...More

The counter staff was very friendly. The food arrived reasonably fast and was quite good. Overall the carriages need a good spring clean.

Loved the corn fritters. Delicious bacon, very good quality. Fresh salad. Meal very generous and too much to finish. Omelette was very tasty too. Big meals for reasonable prices. Lovely environment and kid friendly. Will certainly visit again.

We had 3 good brunch meals. Bacon and eggs, big brekkie and mushrooms on toast. Only two suggestions-try putting the baked beans in a separate bowl on the plate to prevent soaking the toast so much and serve two slices of toast with the mushrooms...More
