Stopped off for a very late lunch today - they serve food all day. Friendly staff, good portion sizes and food came quickly. Good amount of people in too. Will return - recommend for cyclists too as just off a main cycle route.

Great place to visit in a rural location with very friendly and helpful staff and a good meal choice as well as good portion sizes. As a frequent visitor this place has never failed me in the 4+ years i have been going. Even for a vegetarian there are always at least 4 options on the black-board and although some... More
