Had a delightful morning breakfast that was very tasty & filling, in fact we had so much that we had to get some of the food to take away, well worth the money

Took my mum for her 70th birthday and we got the morning tea stand. The staff were great & brought the scones out with a candle & decoration. Great service & lovely food.
