We have eaten here twice in the last month and I'm pleased to say we have not been disappointed with the food or service. Their early bird is good value for money, the food is tasty and portions are adequate. Being able to bring your own wine is always a bonus!

My only complaint: Housekeeping needs a bit of attention. Some of the things I spotted on both my visits that needed cleaning were; the edges of tables, walls, glass on door into the kitchen, windows and the front door. I'm a real stickler for cleanliness, it really doesn't take much to keep a place spotless.

Chunky toasted sandwich with ham and cheese and a bowl of delicious sweet potato soup, just ideal for a rainy afternoon. Busy little spot and very reasonably priced. My only complaint would be that no one cleared our plates and they remained on our table until we paid and left. Will go back to try their breakfast menu sometime which I've heard good reports about.
