Only stopped for coffee as we had 5 dogs but could not resist a Breakfast. Hot Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Egg sublime and a Sausage Bap all washed down with their great Flat White. Went for lunch in the summer as well The Sausage and Scotch Egg Platter is fantastic. Great stop off when walking the hounds

Visited early evening for a bite to eat - although already quite busy with diners and drinkers, the staff were attentive and polite. The food was very nice, the portion size generous and good value for money.
