Let me start by saying- the food is delicious!
It has been about 2 years since I was last here, and the portions have shrunk and the care to presentation is missing. I ordered avocado eggs, and received very little smashed avo, a light smear across the bread, and felt like the plate was half empty. But - the eggs were poached perfectly!
The staff seemed agitated and rushed. The atmosphere was very busy and loud. The bathrooms needed a good clean. It was still a great spot for brunch, I just hope they can bring back to relaxed and friendly atmosphere with gorgeous and delicious food.

I have been here a few times and loved the food before. They took my favourite dish huevos rancheros off the menu so I ordered the club sandwich. I asked for it on brown toast as opposed to Ciabatta and was told I had to stick with what is on the menu and no changes could be made. I saw that they cater for coeliac with Gluten free bread so can't see why they can't cater for other dietary needs.

Food was only average. Using frozen butternut squash for the superfood salad, which was disappointing.
Giving spaghetti as the kids pasta which is impractical and messy!
Lovely restaurant with nice staff, but food needs to match!

Restaurant wasn’t busy but food still took quiet a bit of time to come out of the kitchen ~40mins. Quality wasn’t great and in general is over priced. We were left waiting again for our bill at the end. Not impressed.

Terrible service! We are waiting ages to even be asked if we wanted drinks ! A table of 6 came in after us and got their food before we even got starters! The mains came out without our starter and When we asked about it , it was brought out and we were told we would not be charged for it but we were! We were waiting ridiculous amounts of time for drinks even when it got quiet.
The waiter was very friendly but completely overwhelmed with catering
for the outside area!
There were hardly any of the desserts available that were on the menu! The food was not great by any means!
Will not be returning

Really enjoyed our meal here, food was fantastic and the service was excellent. Our waitress was lovely, attentive and pleasant. We went for our Anniversary but this restaurant is probably more suitable for a casual dining experience. The only slight negative was some very loud young children at a nearby table
