Had the Mezze as a stater for two which was nice. Hummus a bit dry but it was fresh. Fish and chips OK. Burgers too overcooked. Nice to have a meal discount card with me.

We found this bar restaurant by chance and popped in for a quick breakfast before we walked to the station. Staff were friendly, eggs were eggcellent!! Wish we had found it sooner - will definitely be back.
