Very much enjoyed the cheese and bacon burger, sourdough buns were a great touch and the ceder complemented nicely. Wife's prawn and honey soy noddles were tasty but a small portion, bit stingy. Carrot, courgette and leek soup was also excellent.

Had lunch here last week. A mixed plate of antipasto and a lamb and squash wrap. The latter, although small, was sensational and rates as the nicest wrap ever past my lips. Very nice relaxed atmosphere, and our waitress was so helpful

I had two super dinners there earlier this month and I can recommend this restaurant. The food was lovely, full of good flavours, and perfectly cooked. The staff were attentive and friendly.
