The menu is very similar from Market Lane, prices as well, but you get much more space, you feel welcome and the service is great - Tends to get a real factory and busy around Xmas time, much better service and attention off season. Still a nice play to go, good food and attention to details George is great!

Stopped off for a quick coffee with our two kids. Ordered coffees for us and a glass of milk each for them and was charged €3.00 EACH for the milk. Absolutely ridiculous to pay €6 for 2 glasses of milk!

Popped in for lunch, restaurant looks good but food not quite up to scratch. Send back one meal as it was simply too salty. Desert was great though.
