Been over a month since my last visit and unfortunately not much has changed, hot food on cold, worn out plates. Not ideal, waited 25 mins and so my tea was cold by the time i got my food.

With not living too far away from this cafe its handy to call in for a quick munch, the food is always good and a great selection,even the smaller carryout with the seating is recommended for its good quality and great value.the staff are always very helpful and friendly.

The manner of one of the staff wasn't exactly friendly,we got the impression we were bothering her by ordering food. We put it down to her maybe having a bad day and although not really excusable in a customer... More
