We quite often visit this cafe for lunch on a Saturday and love their food. Neither of us is vegetarian but we thoroughly enjoy the fantastic range of meals - there's always something different on the menu. Today we had green bean, mushroom and carrot...More

Well where do I start, service was so poor, the older lady serving needs a lesson in politeness and helpfulness, if a customer ask what is included in the "and more" ingredients how hard is it to explain. With so many people having intolerances these...More
