    I love eating here--or just having a drink /coffee. food is always excellent,and the atmosphere is great. Service very good and owner Sally is lovely. A good variety of dishes available-some with a South east Asian theme. My fish loving friends say the Fish and chips are the best around . great coffee too

    Disappointed. Main courses were served 40 mins after starters cleared. For a lunch serving exclusively business customers this is too long to wait. Both fishes in the fish and chips two of us had were over cooked, with the batter almost burnt. The teriyaki beef one of us had was tough.

    Excellent staff, very attentive and helpful. Specially as one member of the party was egg-intolerant, the help and advice received from staff made it very enjoyable.

    Service and food were both gfreat, it's unfortunate that two first choices had already run out. But can't fault the food and view.
