Popped in for a breakfast as we had not visited the cafe for a long time. We noticed there were new owners. We ordered our food and when it arrived it looked good and we had a pleasant meal. It was such a shame that the chaps who served us did not know how to smile or say thank you,... More

The people who work here are very friendly. The cafe always looks clean and tidy. The food is good. Even better you can get your Car cleaned next door while you eat.

Steak and onion pie was the worst thing I've ever eaten. Had to leave it. Chips were ok. There is a garden to the rear and a picnic table for you to enjoy your food. Dot worry about the massive rat lying on the grass by the table. It's dead.
