    Disappointed with breakfast service
    All the staff are friendly and polite but service for breakfast was terrible we waited seven minutes before our order for tea and coffee was taken the a further fifteen minutes before we got our drinks food was very good so if you have all day to spare this is the place to eat .we had breakfast three times and the service did not improve
