Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Popped in on the off chance and so glad we did. Delicious food, nutritious and fresh. We enjoyed a scrumptious salad, burger, sweet potato fries and cauliflower shawarma.

Brilliant staff, brilliant food and such a relaxing atmosphere. My little one has some social difficulties and can struggle to eat in public. However, she eats something here every single time we come. She is so relaxed here. Added bonus for us as we also...get to enjoy the delicious food and eat out as a family. Chicken special highly recommended. Thank you so much. We look forward to visiting again in the spring.More

We popped in here for lunch as we were just visiting the area and was very pleased with what we found. We had to wait around 10 minutes for the table which we saw as a good sign. The staff were really friendly and the...food selection was very good. We chose 2 dishes from the specials menu, topped hash browns and open fish sandwich. They were both absolutely delicious and definitely worth the money. Excellent service and friendly staff. Cannot recommend this place enough.More

i feel slightly saddened having to write this but it has to be said. before covid this café was very very good, commonly a 30 minute wait for a table at lunch. a wide range of special dishes and an extensive menu. like others since...covid all of this has changed. called in at lunchtime recently, no wait for a table and a friendly waitress service. the coffee is now of very poor quality, prices have risen just like everyone else but they have reduced the range of available menu choices. i ordered mushroom stroganoff from the special board because my favourite cawl has been removed from the menu. roughly £15 i think, i received a bowl that consisted of 3/4 boiled rice with roughly 2 tablespoons of homemade pre prepared sauce plopped on top that. although the sauce had smoked paprika sprinkled it really didn’t have quite the right taste. maybe it’s the stock? the sauce had green peppers and a small amount of onion but literally 1 small mushroom cut into 4 pieces. this is very clearly poor value for money. a table nearby also had the stroganoff and their reaction was clearly unimpressed. my wife’s dirty fries were okay she said but not wow. the greek gentleman who i’m assuming is co owner is probably a nice guy but just doesn’t appear to be that happy. front of house we as paying consumers expect to see smiles, false or not it doesn’t matter. so to sum up - get another chef, make the menu better value for money and concentrate on front of house first impression. a little revamp of decor as it’s now looking a bit gloomy and some drinkable coffee; you’ll be back on track.More

Very nice little pit stop location for the family, breakfast was nice and good quality. Nice tea and latte, would recommend the American pancakes or sourdough toast with scrambled egg and bacon.

Popular lunchtime venue which perhaps had outrun its capabilities in the kitchen. Mainly burgers with a limited few specials.Service was slow and range on the menu limited. Staff were fine, food hot and fresh, though it didn’t all arrive at the same time. I found...the loaded fries-which would not have been my choice but there was not much left -tasty but rather stodgy and lacking in vegetables. We arrived towards the end of lunchtime service which may account for the reduced menu.More

Breakfast was tasty . Coffee 10/10 . So good we had an extra cup each . The only problem was the miserable face of the young man that came over for take our payment . No smile . No thanks have a great day ....Spoilt the positive food vibes we had up until then The lady who bought the food out was lovely those . So maybe the other staff should take note of her service skills. 🤔More
