We visited for lunch. I had a jacket potato with cheese, beans and tuna. It was nice. My wife had a homemade scone. We both had coffee. Service is not the best but the food is decent and prices are reasonable.

After looking what lunchtime food venues were available we decide on this place. We were not disappointed. Nice piece of Lasagne and chips followed by Mango cheesecake. Quite a choice for food and seemed to be frequented by locals.
