The Staff are very friendly, polite & well mannered. The sweet pancakes are very nice. The breakfasts are too. I was advised to have savre pancakes next time so that's what I am having next.

Popped in for lunch with my youngest son. The staff were friendly. It was busy and they all seemed to know what was going on and were very diligent. Food was very nice and reasonably priced. Will definitely be returning soon.
