We arrived just before 1 but even with free tables inside we could only sit outside as the inside tables booked. Quick to take the order but 30 mins + for a sandwich too long. They did promise us a table inside when one became free but they forgot. Food ok for the money, coffee weak, all in all dissatisfied

Waited, waited, got to 12:50pm waitress asked us to move to another table which I refused and couldn't believe! Then waitress comes back and advised no... More
