Tables dirty and floor. Witnessed a server using a meat chopping board for a vegetarian order! Picked ingredients with bare hands and didn't wash. Serious misconduct of hygiene God knows why this place ain't been investigated properly.

Two of us had jacket potato with cups of tea each and enjoyed it all. What you get is a good tasty meal with ample portions, which included salad, for £4.20 for a jacket potato. The decor is basic but the cafe is wheelchair-friendly and...More
