Five adults and two children had a great breakfast here on Christmas Eve. A lovely start to our Christmas. Service was relaxed and friendly. Everyone enjoyed their breakfast choice made from good quality products, well cooked and piping hot.

First time we have visited the restaurant for tapas since taken over. Food very good especially if you get there before 6.30pm as 5 dishes for £13.50, service was excellent. We will be back soon with some other family members.
