Great place. High grade drinks and food. Friendly, professional staff. Right by station if you have time for quick detour (although you may end up justifying a later train). Highly recommended.

Reeks of cheese and ham in a bad way! Not the best first impression but it gets worse when you throw in the rude and arrogant staff. This place is sits somewhere between a bankrupt man's farm shop, a library and a bar. It fails...More
