    Staff were excellent. I need gluten free menu and the waitress let me know which foods were ok . Chips on Gluten free menu we’re not gluten free so shouldn’t be advertised as free. The waitress kept me right because she had Celiac condition too.

    Worst eggs Benedict and eggs Florentine we have ever ordered. Eggs were hard and sauce stone cold !! And we had to ask 3 times for the orange juice we ordered . Staff didn’t even seem concerned when we told them

    Service was lacking enthusiasm and hospitality. Slow and unwilling to interact with the guest. Food was not bad but nothing to go crazy for. Best feature: the fries.

    I'm sorry to say our lunch was very disappointing . The service was slow and the food was poor quality.

    Overall it was great but it did seem to be a little disorganised at times and service was very slow compared to usual. Food was good though and so was our main server. It was a bit cold as we were sitting next to the door so next time I will ask for a different table!
