Excellent customer focused friendly staff. Good prices and quality food. The chicken soup was huge and full of meat & veg. Curried scallop pie comes with a lovely salad.

I often pop in for a coffee with friends and am tempted by the most delicious savoury scones on the planet! I would also recommend the soup for a light lunch (actually very filling, served with a crusty roll). The toilets are nice too, which...More
