‘They have toys and books and are really accomodating and good with kids. My mum takes my son about every fortnight and has done for the last two years since he was born. The staff all make a fuss of him. Book ahead if going at the weekend. They are fine with prams coming in even though they are small as long as not too busy. Their food is super tasty especially the cakes but also the scrambled egg. It’s a very relaxed place and you never feel rushed through.’
