Thanks for positive comments about food. I do understand your observation about customer service Sadly the lady serving has had a very recent bereavement and at the time you visited I believe her partner was very unwell, but she was insistent on coming to work.

We went there after an exam one day, the service to us as 16 year olds was horrible, no effort at all shown, the sausages weren't cooked well-burnt,the bacon was definitely cheap ones, basically either walk,catch a bus or drive to Jenny's in Porthmadog
