Stopped here while traveling since friends had recommended it. We had soup and bread, both hot and delicious. Wait staff was friendly and attentive and we were in our way in no time. Better than fast food. A nice break.

Love the peanuts on the table and speedy on the drink service, also on keeping the glass/cups full. Do not recommend the fish and chips.More
