    Brunch for two, itison deal. Amazing value for money. The sharing platter itself is very filling. The granola was delicious and the fruit so fresh. Good range of main dishes to choose from. The only issue was the slightly wobbly table and the table we had was quite low down making it a little more awkward when eating.
