This is a classic diner. So many choices including Gluten Free. Super friendly service. Good COVID -19 protocols. Lots to look at on the walls and ceiling for AIRPLANE related articles. Easy access.

It’s Sunday Morning when you don’t feel like doing anything except have breakfast with friends. Go here. Done. Great food, friendly service. And even Coffee & Baileys if you choose.

This restaurant is an example for all !!!! Fisrt consideration at this time must be covid safe and this restraurant leads the pack. Attention to my wellness with staff in masks will be rewarded with future visits as others around have failed to evolve and...therefore dissappoint.More

Went for Sunday dinner, and no turkey! This used to be my mom's favourite restaurant, but I've seen the disappointment in her face, everytime we've come here since the Covid reopening. She has Alzheimer disease and doesn't remember, insists on coming here all the time...and then is so disappointed. She ordered bangers, mash and mushy peas last time out. Mushy peas used to be the vibrant green of fresh or frozen with a hint of mint. I tried them and they were a dull green, and tasted like flour and water. My fish was swimming in oil. Obviously not up to temp. when cooked. My friend had Shepherds pie and the filling was tasty, but the mashed potatoes were a tasteless instant mix. Our other friend had a Caesar salad and found clumps of romaine and rootstock still stuck together and missing what little dressing they trickled on. They are cheaping out on quality, value and trying to cut corners. It wasn't broken;they shouldn't have fixed it. Breakfast was no better. The sausages taste heavily of garlic and fennel, the eggs greasy and the service from a couple of waitresses unfriendly. Won't be going back if I can help it!!More

Had dinner there Sunday. The menu has changed and the selection has been reduced. My favourite turkey dinner was gone from the menu. Had the roast beef dinner special. Almost inedible. The beef texture and taste was that of pre-cooked mystery meat. I hope they...get back to normal but it will be a long time before I return. Too bad as it was on my list as a reliable place for a diner type meal. I realize that things have changed due to Covid and people being paid by the government not to work. I suggest that if they are going to reduce the number of offerings, they ensure there is quality in what they do offer.More

The food at Mary’s is fabulous but the shepherds pie is amazing. Our granddaughter loves the airplane theme. A treat to go there when we can.

The meals are delicious! No scrimping on the plates. Usually enough to take home too! The service is always friendly and fast!

February 29, 2020 What a lovely fun evening, the music was really good, had the whole place engaged. The staff in this place is second to none. We had the best Saturday night out for a very long time. Looking forward to next Saturday night...with live music. St Patrick day celebration looks like a really great night, Old Black Rum will be playing, they are so very good, lots of fun to look forward too.More

The first thing I noticed was the very large menu which only means one thing, the majority of the food is frozen. The second thing I noticed after looking around was how dirty the place was. It has very old dirty carpet which has to...be harbouring massive amounts of dirt and bacteria. The food came out surprisingly fast, another red flag. Overall the food was as expected.More

There may be in the future as it was available I. The past. But right now I think they are limiting number of customers because they are just re opening after COVID/19 shutdown
