Very basic food. Service was mediocre. Popped in here because it was one of the first places I came across on the street, but much better options available up the road.

We ordered four three-course-sets for ourselves, also with drinks. The price is very reasonable and food is very sufficient for all three courses. We ordered apple pie with ice-cream and we enjoyed it very much!

Small cafe offering full English breakfast or sarnie and toast options with excellent coffee. Returned twice over 3 days. Seemed popular with locals and a much better option than many hotel breakfast buffet packages.

I arrived about 8pm and thought they were about to close quiet, they were not and so friendly and easy going. The food was very good and i had a roast donner which was excellent value for money.
