The only place in the sleepy hollow of Kingston. Food was great, hot drinks were lovely and the WIFI worked. Couldn't ask for more. Also the bar looked really well stocked and inviting. The toilets looked new. 😊

When we arrived at Kingston Corner, the service showed very little interest in helping the customers. Simple questions concerning the menu obviously bothered the service team. Their reactions were harsh. Food wasn't even good.

Nice sheltered spot to stop on the road south from Queenstown. Good selection of food, tasty and smart service. Excellent burger of generous proportions. Worth the stop.
