Service here is impeccable. I went in for lunch and even though it was busy we were greeted with a warm welcome. The staff were fantastic and the food was incredible. I love what the refurb has done and I can't wait to go back.

Fortunately my husband won a competition and we popped in on Saturday to eat it! It was the eggs benedict roll, which came with very tasty ham and a lovely soft roll. Best roll for breakfast I've ever had. We enjoyed out sweet pastries and coffee too. Can highly recommend this place. The setting was very nice, sat inside as... More

Lovely place to eat lunch. Loved it when it was older looking but it is still nice now that it has been done up. Great selection of deli food. Good staff.

We were with 4 children and were shown the extra space next door so we had plenty of room on a big comfy sofa. The waitresses were really attentive and brilliant with our friend who was on crutches! The food was filling but a bit over salty and the eggs benedict could have been less artificial tasting. A great, handy... More
