We were a little concerned as their Food Hygiene star rating was nowhere to be seen. Very welcoming staff member and the food was prepared to order. A choice of bread would have been nice. However the toastie was quite nice with fresh salad garnish.

The guided audio tour means that you don't miss out on any of the information - although at times it would be helpful to be able to skip to the next section of the tape. Small children would need to be very carefully controlled as...More
