Such a nice relaxed atmosphere! Mara was friendly, welcoming and attentive, first class service. Little touches like adding fruit to the drinks and the lovely glasses made the meal even more enjoyable. Food as always was delicious. Can’t wait to come back

Delicious lunch and cakes! Had the squash salad as tried it before and love it. Also tried a vegan dream cake, it was so tasty, my new favourite cake! Thanks for a great lunch.

We had another appointment after the meal but, with the prompt service, there was no need to hurry to finish the meal. Excellent food as usual.

Nice meal, too soon for drinks but maybe next time! Reasonably wide menu selections and decent portion sizes, soup was very good too. We were at a low table at rear of restaurant as my wife can’t do “getting on and off stools” to a high table, so that was maybe our only gripe, you sit quite a way from a low table so the floor received quite a few crumbs!!

We had booked over the phone and we had been allocated at the back of the restaurant at a coffee table. It was adequate for having a meal and then we asked to be moved as it was not comfortable. We were moved to a small table with high chairs. Here again we struggled with the lack of comfort.
