Absolutely lovely lunch, with delicious food (the tacos were a hit at our table) and friendly and attentive staff. Great options for gluten free, which was what we were looking for as one of our party has Coeliacs. All felt very safe, and loved my birthday brownie treat! We had our wee boy with us, who was getting quite fidgety, so staff made sure to try and bring out his food quicker so as to keep him amused. It’s family friendly, without feeling like a restaurant overrun with kids, which is great. Looking forward to our next visit.

Mid-morning Sunday breakfast. Server attentive but requests such as brown sauce or another drink were served slowly. Placing butter on top of warm toast is not a good idea as it becomes a greasy liquid, when some more was requested it never arrived.
Food quality good as is potion size but don't expect to nip in for a quick breakfast

Nice. Good food and nice atmosphere. But service was slow and in a 2 hr slot we were only offered drinks twice and after mains were cleared we were told we had half an hour left. Fair enough but no desserts, drinks or coffees were offered so we basically sat for half an hour at a bare table. It was a special occasion and we basically only ate or drank half of what we would have liked.
