We come every January and stay next door at the Radisson. This has become our go-to spot for coffee and lunch. Always good food, always reliable, great staff, healthy food with lots of vegetables. Highly recommended.

The full English was distinctly average, the sausages were lovely though. Bacon was unsmoked and staff not particularly attentive.
