Hi there, really sorry you had to wait so long for your order to be taken? Not normally an issue as the staff are constantly round the room when its busy. I'm assuming it was busy when you were in and again apologies if you...More

Visited here at the weekend and enjoyed a good non- gluten meal. The menu had a great key and recognised lots of different diets. The food was tasty and they also offer some nice freshly pressed fruit juices. Would visit here again.
