Nice atmosphere inside and some seating out the front. The staff were spot on with their service. Good selection on the menu. Serving sizes very ample and food very tasty. We will be back.

Have been to this place previously and was in the area with family. Had been out to breakfast earlier and we only needed something to tide us over. All but one picked from the light menu. Was what we needed at the time.

i very recently had dinner there, and it was located within easy walking distance from my accommodation; the service was effective but unassuming and the food delicious; i had an entree and a very appetising special seafood with chorizo sausage

It came in a ceramic pot around 350 ml, with a T2 chai teabag, frothed and watery milk with some kind of spice shaken on top inside the pot lid. Complete waste of time. Hideous. Owner manager pls go see how Goldbergs does it. Just...More
