Called in for lunch. Staff very helpful. Very good gluten free choices even had chips. Not many places have gluten free chips. Quite cheap prices. Would return if visiting the area again. Keep up the excellent service your giving your customers.

I recommend the battered halloumi. While it's perhaps not the nicest place in town, the value for the money must be appreciated.
