“Good food, good service”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Went there for a breakfast and found the food excellent and the service very good. The only thing is the was a child banging cutlery on the table and being very noisy which is not what you on a Saturday when you've popped out for breaky.

Thats more to do with the parents though i suppose but would have thought staff may have politely asked for it to stop considering the 10-12 other people in the place where getting a little peeved by it!!

“Lazy Sunday's”
Reviewed 20 October 2013 via mobile

Open all week, but Sunday brunch here is a must. Great place to enjoy a hearty breakfast at leisure with the paper.

Recommend the blacksmith breakfast (only if you are hungry!!) but the omelettes are equally as big.

Be prepared to wait for a table as it's pretty popular but there is more seating at the rear in the garden area which is really nice on a fine day.

Don't go if you plan on having a roast later...:-)

“Lovely sunny Sunday”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Sat outside in the garden on a lovely sunny morning. I've eaten here before and don't think breakfasts are the best so we had a tuna cheese jacket, coronation chicken panini and curly fries. All food good. Make sure you ask if you don't want salad dressing though. Nice and relaxing and food went down well. Very busy so service okay.

“Terrible service spoils good food”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Ignored for ages, requested table to be cleaned twice, no butter for toast, poor communication. Food pretty good but would not recommend. Shame

“Great place, but not perfect!”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

The atmosphere and homely feel of the place really make it. Nice layout, great garden. Big portions of food and it's reasonably priced. BUT the food is very average and the menu rarely changes. It need a bit of a refresh for locals. The food is okay, my meal was rather bland and cold. The staff were unusually inattentive on my last visit, but I'll put that down to the day. A good place, just not great.
