Lovely helpful staff, really friendly. English breakfast is an absolute bargain. English dishes all good but so is the Indian. Lovely clean toilets a bonus and nice grounds to eat in.

A nice place for breakfast if you are in this area, good prices and nice staff. The service is a bit slow when things get busy and they could change the tablecloths a bit more frequently.
