I had the bacon, avocado, spinach salad, which was lovely. Good atmosphere, though a bit crowded, when we were there. The staff were accommodating. Excellent food, reasonably priced.

Hi Mary. I am an Australian who was on holiday when I went there. I have never heard of ''Taste'' card. I always use cash or AMEX when I go to UK. Best shot would be to ring. They are on the web!. Cheers Williamb Australia
