They stayed open just for us, which was very kind. We only wanted a light snack and we really enjoyed our freshly prepared egg mayonnaise sandwich. The decor isn't exactly our style, but we were very well looked after and came back the following day!

Popped in for lunch after a delightful walk. Both meals (ham, eggs and chips and jacket potato with tuna) were freshly prepared and cooked to perfection. Very good value. Worth walking round the corner for! Highly recommended.
