“A little gem!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

This compact restaurant was the local powerhouse for the town. The menu provided good choice of brunch until 11am and lunch until 2-3pm. The poached egg variations looked scrumptious and it was the Mexican version which pleased my palate. Don't forget to try either the date or cheese scones - huge and delicious.

“Good find”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Enjoyed a lovely lunch here. Usually rammed for breakfast so we booked ahead but probably didnt need to. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Desserts look scrumptious but we were stuffed! Relaxed but good food.

“Love the breakfast!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Big portion, the potato pancake is beautiful, bacon crispy and tasty. The desserts look nice, although I was too full after my big size breakfast.

Tried their scone and it's pretty good too!

“Porridge”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Terrific porridge although we could have done without the cream!!
The Cointreau and rhubarb really made the dish. Yummy!!!
May need to book as it was a busy morning.
