I asked for a swap with their breakfast to have 2 sausages and one bacon instead of the other way round. I often ask for this when eating out and there's never been a problem with this request. The lady in charge refused and said...More

Made our way across the Car Park at Sea Life to this little gem. It is much bigger and airier than the former and run by two very friendly ladies. We called there for a snack at lunchtime (soup, ordinary sandwich and toasties) which were...More

So sorry you experienced such a awful time, I must admit I can't remember seeing anything advertised about our burgers being the best around, and I would never let a burger go out without garnish unless the customer requested none. Find this review hard to...More
