Superb selection of tasty cakes, very nice breakfasts and an amazing roast dinner. The fishy pie was packed with haddock and prawns in lovely rich sauce. The prices were all very reasonable and the service from the staff is exceptional. I can't recommend this place...More

Very nice place to eat. I read a review that said over priced. Think that should go back to Mac Donald's. It's very reasonable priced
