Love the new restaurant and menu. Food quality great but the service is not. I hope that the next time we visit we are pleasantly surprised

Hi There. Service is something that needs constant attention and is certainly something we work very hard on, however, mistakes do happen and the ball does get dropped occasionally. Thank you for bringing it to our attention though and please let us know how your next experience goes? More

Found this café on Trip Advisor and gave it a go on a Saturday night. Found it fairly empty. Waitress was friendly and helpful, but couldn't remember the orders and had to check several times. Quite heavy on the food side - bread triangles with both starter and main; creamy pasta was heavy and seemed a little over-cooked (soft, with... More

Service are notoriously bad. Coffee very good. Lots of flies. But have fly repellant that is not offered unless you ask about all the flies. Very stingy on sweetner for coffee. Even if you ask you need to get up eventually to go fetch or use your own

Extremely dissapointing coffee shop. On arrival I heard the table next door complaining that they hadnt received their food. I should have taken that as a warning. We sat for 35 minutes waiting for eggs on toast.. The waitress was totally remiss and didn't appear at all when we got up to leave, leaving money for the drinks. I shan't... More

Friendly staff, Enjoyed the banting bowl... Nice to see that more eating places are accommodating banting menus. Enjoyed the filter coffee. Nice atmosphere to meet friends & family just to catch up.

They serve a great cuppachino Service at times slowish! They tend to forget a request for a glass of water. A very dangerous step into the Cafe which is well indicated but never the less unexpected.

Surprisingly slow service on a very quiet afternoon. My little boy waited (rather impatiently) for his ice cream .... it was annoying because I could see the waitress walking around inside with his bowl of ice cream. Then waited another 20 minutes for a slice of cake (surely it can't take that long just to cut a slice of cake).... More

We had a midweek dinner on what appeared to be a quiet night. The food was clearly pre cooked and pretty average. Even more so when you consider what your can get in other parts of the country for the same price tag. Very disappointing evening out
