I ate breakfast here after staying in the nearby Travelodge. It looks tired, but was clean enough and the food was nicely cooked and served by friendly staff.

The Resturant was deserted but the staff were welcoming and the tea was hot and brewed to perfection. The building was a little tired but I enjoyed to cuppa and it was a present place to get organised before my evening filming session.

However the lady staff member was friendly, chatty and nothing was too much trouble ! I had the fish & chips and my friend had the burger and both meals were served with care and I... More

its clean and tidy, although my table needed wiping. The food is cooked but nothing special, This place is more suited to the lone traveller who is in need of food, gives the impression of being to clinical for a meal with someone important in your life.
