Never disappoints. Really good menu selection, the ice cream shack and the take away hatch have helped manage queues. Staff have always been lovely. Wide choice o the menu and the food NEVER disappoints. I think it's pretty good value too, especially considering the location.

Well worth navigating through the bungalow jungle to find this cafe. Food cooked to order, big portions, quick service and sensible prices. Terrific spot to start, end or take a break in your dog walk. Can't fault it and we will be back. Don't be...More

Yes the car park is uneven, but you could drive up to back of restaurant and possibly let your disabled passenger off. Best check with the venue. Over wise when inside everything on one level.
