I had the sausage roll. It was so hard on each end I couldn't get knife to cut it. Rest was really poor, possibly a microwave error?. Next two tables were up in arms about terrible food which the couldn't eat. I was totally shocked as in years gone by it was a favourite stop because of the great food.

Promoted a selection of exotic pies, but my Thai Green Chicken one was very dry, as though it had been in a hot cabinet for several days. My partner’s salad lacked dressing, and salt & pepper had to be asked for specially, as it was not available anywhere. A good selection of over-large sweet slices was a plus, but being completely staffed by overseas students with limited English caused ordering difficulties for both us, and other groups coming in. Parking for our caravan, and other Motorhomes, was also an issue.
This cafe is strategically placed on SH1, but has gone downhill in the last year or so, and could do a lot better.

If I could give this place negative stars I would! Walking into the cafe presentation is so great but I asked for a pie and got a microwave sponge. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED, such a let down. Staff were so rude and nasty. Would never go back there again.. also being judged for the way I looked, wasn’t impressed.
