Woman who served me was extremely moody and ignorant. The toast might as well been slabs or concrete. It was cold and solid.

My husband and I arrived at lunch time, so decided to have lunch there. My husband had sandwiches and I had a baguette. They were both accompanied by crisps and salad and were very tasty.
