Called in yesterday on way to Welshpool. I had the classic breakfast my husband the Welsh. Both were excellent. Sausage was delicious. Coffee came in huge cups and was very good. Just what was needed on a cold miserable day. Will definitely call again .

We called in on our way home from the seaside. The cooked breakfast was one of the best I have had for a long time. The sausages were most excellent. The young lady was very helpful and welcoming. I will definitely be going again.

I had a large Welsh breakfast that was excellent quality, perfect start to a day out in Aber! Service was fast as it was a relatively quiet morning and staff were very friendly. Will definitely be stopping back next time I'm in the area.

WAITING TIMES. All our food is freshly cooked to order using quality ingredients. Nothing is held in a Bain Marie, a hot cupboard or produced from plastic bags. Consequently cooking times are longer than some establishments and we would ask for your patience when waiting for food during busy periods. We believe that the wait is well worth it when the food arrives. Lynne, John and Hannah
