We went this morning for our brekkie, the food was ok, coffee awful. Staff friendly service was fine, but my word what an out dated place, shabby and unkept. Last went about 3 years ago and it seems like time has stood still over there.

Very suitable place for passing some time with the grandchildren at a reasonable price. Children really enjoyed it and were always in sight. Drawbacks would be the slightly outdated, and uncomfortable, seating area to have a coffee and the young lady who was serving seemed...More
