We have not visited for some time and there were changes. The restaurant is clean and tidy. The service was very good. I had the small breakfast with toast and coffee. My wife had gluten free breakfast. The meals were piping hot and very enjoyable.

Very poor service. Plenty of staff, but got the distinct feeling they didnt want to serve. It was lunch time so no excuse for wanting to close. When the food arrived it was ok when they got the order correct.
