I went here recently from work, there were 3 adults and 3 teenagers in wheelchairs. When we entered we were informed by staff that we could not occupy 3 tables so we had to squash into 2 small tables. For us to get tables together other customers offered to move from their seats.

Went for a coffee at the weekend (Saturday), I ordered at the counter and sat down. The waitress comes over and asks for my order, I politely tell her I already ordered.. She grabs the menus quickly and firmly and turns on her heels..no manners

I have had lunch here on a few occasions recently. There is a good selection of food on offer and the portions are generous. The food is freshly prepared and you can choose from a good range of healthy options. Good value for money. It can be busy especially if you arrive at peak lunch time so you may have... More

I have lunch here on a fairly frequent basis. The food is lovely and is one of the few cafes that seriously caters for those of us who like to eat healthily. Staff are very friendly and always make you feel very welcome. Good value for your money and always has great daily specials. Definitely worth a visit for lunch... More
