Out for a stroll and dropped in after a good review. Good friendly service. The chicken was lovely and the brioche buns very fresh. The whole family had something different and all enjoyed. Nice stroll around Jesmond in the sun afterwards.

Good is really great and good value. Do think the milkshakes at almost £4 are a total rip off. When McDonald's shakes are better you have a problem
