The breakfast was poor and didn't live up to expectations. It's normal to get tea or coffee with a breakfast which wasn't on offer. The quality of the food was a bit of a let down. There are better breakfasts nearby so I would give this a miss.

Meeting with family for a quick lunch and a catch up. The service was fast and efficient. There menu had a good variety and was very reasonably priced. There was no rush to get us to leave, even though it was quite busy. Would recommend.
