My family went to this restaurant for a morning meal and coffee. The server was unwelcoming and the food was terrible. The bacon sandwich was under cooked and the scrambled egg on toast was watery and almost uneadable. I would not recommend!!!!!!

Lindsay and I were recommended to go to this place. So far we've been 4 times on this, our first holiday to Dartmouth. We have not been disappointed! We had a 'Cream Tea' on our last visit (our 4th) and it was SUPERB.

Our cream tea and other orders were really lovely. However the waitress/manager seemed very stressed so we did not feel too relaxed being there which was a shame. She was very friendly with our dog though and I would highly recommend the cream tea -delicious.More
