We all had a lovely birthday lunch here. Coffee was spot on. Meals were delicious. Service was amzing. The only downside was that it was a bit pricy for mains, and not a cheaper meal option. But put that aside, it was perfect!

-Great service. Super friendly and welcoming. -Beautiful, fresh, delicious food. Prepared perfectly every time, and served in a timely manner, even when busy.-Great atmosphere. -Child Friendly. Big toy box for little ones, so parents can stay a little longer and be treated. -And I love how they welcome the fur babies too. With water bowls provided.

Tried this place as it was rated the best in town on this site. What a sad disappointment, service could not b found, food was generous but not as good as the takeaway in the Main Street. Stay away unless you have money to waste.

The place has a vibe about it, but I have been there 3 times and each time I have had to return the cup as it had lipstick on it.... The owners has said each time:- "I'm not going to charge you any more for that." ... I think .... enough is enough.... Prices are dearer than other outlets including... More
