Go here quite a lot. Food is really nice and the girls are always happy and friendly, but it's seems the portions are getting smaller and smaller. The chicken based specials used to be perfect but now they are half the size.

Love this place, great breakfasts and lots of lunchtime options available during the week. The boss and the girls are always friendly even though they are very busy. Just wish they had a separate line for the coffee’s as it holds up the hungry punters in the mornings.

The staff are very friendly and welcoming but I would suggest wearing gloves and even hair nets when preparing, handling and serving food as it is extremely unhygienic and puts people off.

Hi Kristine

Thank you for your review.

My experience has shown that wearing gloves to handle food is less hygiene than bear hands as the team are more likely to wash their hands frequently than change gloves.

We have recently had our food hygiene inspection in which we scored another 5 out of 5 rating which would indicate we have very high standards.

I will review the standards of dress to ensure hair is tied back and tidy

Many thanks

Ian

I use this café every week. There is a great selection of fresh cooked food everyday, the burgers are great. Staff are friendly and helpful. Just enough tables to have a sit down and relax from the office at lunch. All food can be served to take away as well.
