Had a lovely takeaway lunch. The tomato soup was lovely, even my fussy daughter loved the chicken burger.

I ate here with my wife and two children yesterday. The food was nicely prepared, fresh, hot and tasted lovely. 2 paninis, burger and chips and a kids chicken and chips with drinks came to around 22 pounds. Good quality and a friendly welcome.
