Stopped off for a tea and bacon sarnie, and now can't wait to go back. Prompt service, lush bacon and well cooked poached eggs. What's not to like? Oh and Wi-Fi so was able to crack on with a bit of work too

Normally I have to forego the pleasures of cake and a cuppa, but here I was spoilt for choice. All the staff were attentive and chatty.

A good place for a coffee or tea and the breakfast was very good. Staff were friendly and if you get a window seat then you can watch the world go by.
