Visited for lunch with a friend. Not a good sign when a cafe in this location is only half full at lunchtime on a beautiful day. A depressing place to eat with its dated furniture. The table appeared clean but was greasy to touch. Yuk....More

A fairly standard cafe menu & I expected average food. We were delighted by the high standard. A delightful omelette with chunky ham pieces, delicious homemade soup, crispy chips etc etc. We passed on the cakes & had ice creams instead but they looked delicious....More
