“Lovely scone!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

We visited for lunch, we all had a sandwich/panini all of which were lovely. We also had an apricot and ginger scone which was amazing, served warm with butter. The staff were friendly and the service was quick. Definitely worth popping in for lunch if you're in the area.

“Delicious home cooked food.”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

What a lovely place to catch up with friends, sitting in the sun and enjoying atmospheric views over the marina! We chose a variety of paninis and ciabattas from the specials menu and all were excellent. As it was hot I had an iced Latte instead of a hot drink which was well made and perfect for summer. The strawberry cheesecake was honestly one of the best I have ever had, light and a delicate flavour . I have read previous comments about the staff and really feel it can't be justified as having visited this cafe on many occasions I have only ever received a friendly welcome and prompt attention. Given the great location, home made food and good service this is a place I keep returning to .

“Pleasant”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Tucked away on the marina is where you'll find the snow goose. Its a nice little cafe that has a good selection of food and drinks. It is very small inside and can get quite busy. This sometimes can lead to a long wait for something as basic as a toastie.
The food has always been ok and the place is clean.
I cant say this place is amazing, because it isnt. The oldies seem to like this place, which is fine.
Would i go back? Yes i would. But I dont go out of my way to go.

The snow goose is nice, just , nice...nothing more, nothing less, just nice.

“Miserable staff”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We visited mid morning restaurant was fairly quiet, the greeting was cold and it appeared all the staff were in a similar mood, our friends who we're visiting for the first time were shocked by the attitude of the staff. Food was served quickly, overall experience spoilt by staffs attitude
