The presentation and quality of facilities within the establishment is always of a high standard. Toilets are well maintained and presented at all times and offer a pleasant, comfortable and hygienic environment. All customers receive a prompt acknowledgement upon entering and a warm welcome is given with appropriate eye contact and a smile. Orders are always taken in a pleasant and professional manner.
