Hi Gary S, Thanks for the review and we're glad you had fun! One note on the pumpkin prices. We bought a Lidl 99p pumpkin and weighed it on our scales. It would have cost 87p from us at our price of 45p/kg.

Had a good breakfast here, it's not cheap but a good selection to choose from. Would recommend the smoked salmon ! They also have a lot of very nice cakes and desserts
