However we have so much more then just that ranging from salads to sandwiches, soups & stews as well as Fajitas & Fish! We also have a separate Vegan, Vegetarian & Gluten free menu as well as options for children. As expected all our food is freshly made, locally sourced & prepared on the premises.

The fleet walk is the nearest as its pedestrianised. Just take a slow walk. It's not too far away and will be worth it When you get there. Great food and surroundings.

Fleet walk car park is the nearest one to the Rock Garden. No parking in town as it's pedestrianised. Great food. Enjoy.
