Superb service

On my recent visit to Barnstaple, we decided to stop here for a bit of lunch. Being set just off the High Street - it is ideally located for those in need of a quick pick-me-up. The service we received was second to none, the staff were very warm and welcoming. The lunches were delicious, generously sized and very reasonably priced. I would definitely visit again if I was I the area.
