Wonderful food, burger was just how I expected. Loads of flavour and filling. Service was good. Even have blankets to sit under on a chilly evening outside. Great touch! There was no rush and the waitress was friendly. Would eat here again.

Small car park at the rear of the Town Hall, opposite us on Ladywell Road. I believe it's free after 5:30 pm, but check the car park notice board to confirm this.
