I lived nearby, so I regularly stopped by for a coffee. The breakfast is ok, however not much choice.

The food was delicious. The dining area could be arranged a bit more tastefully IMO. The rest of the place is just about right. Chilled out and family friendly.

Lovely place. Went with a group of 6 and we managed to find something on the menu to suit everyone. The service was very attentive, nothing was too much trouble. The chef even came out to check we were enjoying the food. Enjoyed the chocolate float. Generous portion sizes and good value for money
