Stopped off here for lunch on our way to the lakes. Great value lovely and clean. Easy to order food. Quick efficient service. Food was fresh and tasty. Great choice. The shop area was fantastic so much variety could've spent a fortune.

We had afternoon tea which proved to be very good value and excellent quality. On previous visits we'd selected hot food options and they too were excellent. The shop is well stocked with quality food with some gifts. Well worth a visit.
