Absolutely shocking! No service at all, after receiving menus. After 20 minutes we got up and left. Besides the fact that the restaurant was not busy, no one even cared to ask why we were leaving. Sorry, but no second chances!!!!

Great food and cappuccino. Everything was perfect with good service. Rustic decor with a deli within the store to buy home made jams, rusks etc. All over perfect.

Lovely little shop - restaurant, gifts and baked cakes and sweets. We briefly visited to buy a few cakes and it really was nice and "home baked" Pop in for a look they have a little something for everyone.

We really really like their local specialities such as tripe, oxtail and daily specials. Apparently they do a really good Sunday lunch which we will try next time.

When only three out of four meals arrive you are entitled to throw your toys and be peeved off, especially after asking the waitress five times where the fourth meal was and being told five times that "it is on its way". Everyone had eaten and we had asked for the bill, only then did the fourth meal arrive. I... More

Nothing fancy. Home prepared meals. Very friendly staff. Very well priced. Felt like I actually walked into a house, and asked for some food. No unnecessary niceties. I was hungry.. I asked for food.. I got a plate of food. The wait was a bit long, however.. but this is acceptable, considering that I felt like I was in her... More
