I was travelling alone, didn't have a booking and was starving. They managed to fit me in-between customer bookings which was fantastic and it was worth it. I had the Chefs salad with spicy shrimp which was to die for

We stopped here for a lunch one day on our way back from the Thermal Wonderland. We shared a few different dishes, all of which were tasty and the best part was the way they were able to accommodate someone who has celiac.

Coffee was great. Unfortunately very disappointed in lunch ordered off the menu. Overpriced and very poor lunch main. Ordered the steak California burrito- basically stuffed full with fries. Only couple of pieces of steak. Everything else in it was lacking. Was really disappointed.

Stopped off late and were seated without a booking. Friendly attentive staff. Tasty starters and main meal. Quiet and warm on a winters night. Well priced
