This is a regular lunch stop for me. I meet friends after shopping before returning home. There is always a good choice of inexpensive tasty food with daily specials. The service is always friendly and efficient.

This place is great for lunch and they also do evening meals. It's tucked away at the end of a parade of shops near M&S but is well known to locals. Note that it gets really busy. There is an extenstive menu with choices for vegetarians. The food is consistently good as is the service and the staff are friendly... More

We ordered a cheese quiche to take home. It's to die for. Never ever tasted something that nice. The meals are absolutely delicious. Great variety. If you're in the vicinity, do yourself a vague and pop in. It's worth it. And if you want to impress guests order a cheese quiche. Ask Carol for her special family size cheese quiche.... More

On our way to M&S when we saw this place. It was lunchtime, they were very busy but they managed to find us a table very quickly despite us having both a wheelchair and a buggy to fit in. The manager could not have been more welcoming or helpful. As I said, full and very busy but we were served... More

Visited for lunch today. My wife, who is disabled, was helped by a young lady waitress who made sure she had an accessible seat. We ordered jacket potatoes, with savoury mince, which was delicious. The service was prompt and the food was lovely. The staff were lovely. Excellent.

First of all our order was "lost in the system" in other words someone pressed the wrong button!! The member of staff on the till was extremely rude and kept hiding with her phone under the desk with no regard for any customers entering or coming to pay. To be honest, when the food arrived it was well presented and... More
