Me and my wife ate here recently and for less than 20 quid we were both fed and watered. The food was great with a shorter than average wait time and the service was lovely.

Great cafe with friendly staff. All freshly cooked so worth the wait at busy times. I had the mushroom swiss burger which was delicious and sooooo juicy. Leave room for the homemade cakes with the lemon and poppy seed our favourite. We will be back.

We stopped for a late breakfast on our trip from Pembrokeshire to Manchester. A great location to break up the journey. The breakfast menu is large and we were excited to see pancakes on offer. I had the Yankee breakfast - bacon, eggs, beans, pancakes...More

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
