Ed and his staff make this a pleasure to go for breakfast or lunch. The chicken pie, orange cake and cheese cake are superb!

We called in at this restaurant off chance as friends had eaten a good breakfast there before. Unfortunately we had a very poor meal....all of us. The atmosphere was nice, staff were pretty poor, didn't seem to know anything about the dishes, and the food was extremely disappointing. Such a shame, poor flavoring and over cooked.

I had a salad here for lunch. Service was very good. Quality of the salad was very good quantity definitely could have been more. Moreover the Sauvignon blanc has been served too warm....
