We have been here a few times at each time the food and service has been wonderful, pays to book for evening meals as it can be quite full. Great selection of food for all tastes and has vegetarian and vegan options. The drinks selection is very good and the coffee and deserts are a great way to end the... More

We've been here several times in 2016 with our boys (~11 and 9). The front of house is always warm, genuine and interested in whatever gazillion questions the boys have about their order (soft tacos, sliders or burgers usually). We share salt & pepper squid and you can't go wrong with anything on the menu really. Great beer and wine... More

Popped in here recently for coffee and happy to report that it was decently made and good tasting. I also ordered a fluffy for my 3 year-old which was served in large cup which I found odd Not so thrilled with the service, people serving did seem particularly enthusiastic to be working there!

Food was ok but nothing special. For the price I didn't think it was worth it. Service was a bit slow and my eggs still have clear whites on top. I prefer mine a bit more cooked.

This converted service station offers a great selection of american diner food. We found the food presentation to be of a very good standard along with the service.

Food was nice for dinner but not exceptional, good place to meet up with a group of friends. Have had brunch there a few times and it was really good, well recommended for brunch.

We had dinner on a Friday night. I had the fish and chips which was good. My wife had the special - roast pork. She was expecting a great dish, but when the pork arrived, it was overcooked and burnt in places. Service by the staff was great. Overall, I'd say our experience was so-so. I don't plan to eat...
