As a local we do pop in occasionally, especially the day after the night before. This is a no frills good value for money and amount of food. The décor could do with updating but on the flip side it adds to the appeal.

We normally love Smokey Joe's but this was our first visit where not all went well. The service was very slow and I think they even forgot about us, the food was a bit tasteless and my partner had a side salad and it was huge, too much to be honest. It was a let down seem as most of... More

Called in for a light lunch requested a simple poached egg on toast with no butter. When it arrived it was covered in butter so I explained I had asked for no butter, the waitress SNATCHED the plate away and gave me a filthy look. Brought another one. Eggs were hard and cold. Waitress that served us had short dark... More

This place is a big hit with the locals. The food is excellent. It is a no frills restaurant but the service is good and it's excellent value for money. There is a good range of food and several specials.

Place is very unclean, dire and the breakfast tasted awful. Attracts too many boisterous customers and no one pays any attention to you. It's like if you needed more of something you get quite an abrupt response. Unprofessional and unpleasant I don't encourage anyone to go here if you like to have a nice peace of mind dining.

This place basically does what it says in the tin. It's a truckers cafe portions are generous to large the price is exceptional. Don't expect silver service. Expect local ladies who know their stuff and are precise and efficient. Excellent breakfasts and fab for a very reasonable priced family dinner with an extensive menu. Look out for the roasts !

I also noticed that the ladies toilets were not in the best of condition, the food here Is good... More
