Had a wonderful breakfast here today. Freshly cooked with good quality ingredients, proper coffee. It was quite this morning but I can imagine it being really busy in the summer months. A nice find !! We will return.

The service was really friendly, food and coffee really good and at reasonable prices. Our dog was also made really welcome with some sausages. He can't wait to go back!

Breakfast here never disappoints! It does get busy at weekends though so be prepared to wait for a table and then wait for the food- but it's worth the wait! Always hot, fresh and not at all greasy- love it there!!

Although we only wanted a light lunch, the service was great, the lady serving was very friendly. The food was hot, as was the plate, what a... More

Had a great birthday breakfast with my wife this morning. Service was superb and our fry up breakfast were the best we had for ages. Would definitely recommend and a second visit is a must.
