This used to be a good restaurant with good food and pleasant staff. It has had a facelift and changed its name. At the same time the service and quality has gone downhill. What used to be a regular stop off will now be removed...More

We have used this cafe several times now. Can get very busy at peak times. Something for every one from a large range menu, some daily specials as a rule too.
