Go in here often for coffee, which is amazing value, and snacks. It has a good atmosphere and is always busy, but it so needs a make-over. It's dark and dismal and needs the decorators in!

Garlic bread with mozzarella cheese was fantastic, as was the spicy chicken wings. The staff friendly and nothing was too much trouble even with all tables occupied.
