Visit here often the food is lovely and fresh. Reasonably priced too. The staff are helpful and friendly and keep the cafe clean and tidy. Easy access and ample parking on the street as well as the car park behind the cafe.

We visit here quite often, the breaded haddock is a must, lovely and fresh, as is the half chicken. Always very busy, but are always served quickly and efficiently with a smile from all the staff. See you all again soon.More
