Everything was wonderful. The service, the atmosphere, the food were all absolutely wonderful. There were four of us and everyone was more than satisfied. Each of us have very different tastes and desires and everyone left very happy. Don't miss this one.

Great breakfast with a smile even though there were 10 of us. Proper bread wonderfully toasted with home made marmalade followed a wonderful cooked breakfast and a proper cuppa tea in a nice mug. No hesitation in recommending.....
