I love this place and so glad it's just round the corner. It's easy to become jaded by buildings and cars, so it's great to go and check out the animals at the farm. It seems like they are on rotation because it's pot luck...More

Have now had Sunday breakfast here on 2 x occasions. The breakfast they serve is nice however the main issue is the portion sizes. For the £9 you pay for a full English, you get a relatively pitiful amount of everything. Only one sausage, 2...More
