Great breakfast stopping place. Generous portions of excellent quality food. The scrambled eggs and home-cured bacon on thick slices of toast were delicious. It’s great to taste well made decaffeinated coffee. Service is friendly.

Stopped here on the way to Scotland, great food and a little playground. Slightly expensive, but worth it for the range of options. Good spot for a leg stretch.
