Osbornes at 68

Opening times: Monday-Sunday: 10am-4pm

Rating: 4.5/5

One person wrote this review: “Had brunch here on Sunday and it was very nice. The food was good and portions a decent size, and the sausages were good quality.

“This is a dog friendly restaurant so there is the potential for several dogs to be in there as well - they have treats and water bowls for the dogs as well. I don't think they are open in the evening - but couldn't swear to that.”
