Inside, the main shop floor is well presented and organised, with two glass fronted display counters and food preparation areas behind. Drinks and other food goods are stocked in display fridges. To the rear of the main servery area is an additional preparation room with fridges, freezers, ovens and other well maintained equipment. Toilet, office and staff room are all separate and private. All areas are well presented and finished to a good standard with quality fixtures, fittings and equipment in place.
