Will definitely be back!

What a difference to what used to be the Off Sales. A lot of work has been put in to make it what it is today. I've been to the newly opened hub twice now, the home baking was absolutely delicious, every detail was catered for. The lady who served us was very polite, chatty, did the baking, and made our experience all the better. We will definitely be back.
