I just wish we lived nearer so we could visit more often . You know when something is so delicious when you think back to it you can almost taste it again well that's what this fabulous place is like.

Hi FionaMc Thank you so much for visiting with us! And so glad you enjoyed your smoked salmon. Funny thing is - I was in a well known food hall recently - and was looking at the smoked salmon packs - They were priced by 100g - The packaging was huge - making the overall pack look very big. I... More

Dropped in for lunch, good variety of choice on the menu, excellent service from the friendly and polite staff, the food was fresh and good value for money, free top ups on your cups of coffee. Nice location just off the A75 will definitely be back for more.
