We came here for an end of term celebration - our kids attend the local school, and grandparents were with us. We arrived at 3.30pm - an hour and a half before closing time, but the manager was already cleaning, and refused to let us into the side part of the restaurant, were it was much cooler in 29 degrees of heat. She eventually and very reluctantly allowed us into the side section after we were a bit more insistent. The other occurrence, which was almost amusing in a Fawlty Towers sort of way, was when we asked for 2 monster shakes at 5.25 pounds each. Our request elicited a tut and an eye roll from the manager - presumably because of the trouble it would cause her to make them! Food was OK, but the side order of chips was forgotten. To the manager/owner - I think you should move away from the hospitality business. It clearly isn't for you!

Lovely goats cheese salad and fish and chips for lunch. Very tasty and great value for money. The waitress was friendly and polite which was lovely. It was fairly busy but we didn't have to wait long at all for our meal. The cakes looked delicious so we bought some to take home which were enjoyed immensely. On the downside, the place could do with a bit of a spring clean, dead flies and wasps on the window ledge were quite off puting but quickly cleaned up once highlighted.

Best fruit scones I’ve tasted and I’ve tasted a lot! Sausage Roll Chips and Beans, scone and a coke for 2 for around 15 quid. Can’t really fault it.

I reviewed the milk bar not long after it reopened and, since then have visited it often. Over the last year or so menus have been tweaked, service has improved, toilets are much better and the whole place has a busy, energetic, welcoming vibe!

Today was great. A warm midweek day in June and the place was rockin'.... tables outside full, restaurant busy but dishes coming out of kitchen really fast. Coach party arrived, all seated and served with apparently no bother.

And the staff, although rushed off their feet, were still smiling!
