Had lunch here; beef sandwiches with chips. Absolutely delicious, but we waited for 35 minutes before it arrived and it wasn't particularly busy. Staff really nice, food was great but just need to speed things up!

We dined here on two consecutive nights whilst staying nearby and thoroughly enjoyed our meals on both occasions. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The cafe is clean, fresh and modern, and the menu has a good range of meals. Highly recommended.
