This was an excellent restaurant firstly as Cafe 21 and then under Mr Lowrey, the food was great but we did notice a decline in standards as time wore on, the menu started to look a bit tired and samey. This restaurant is sorely missed in Darras Hall because there is a shortage of places to eat out at, unless... More

The restaurant has been closed for approx 8 weeks and we haven't had a good meal out since. Your sign outside the restaurant states you hope to see us soon. Ian Lowrey where are you!

Unfortunately the restaurant has closed down. Such a shame. Just not enough business I presume, but really is a loss.

As ever, fantastic food, excellent service and a great atmosphere. This place never disappoints, it delivers high quality dishes that would grace restaurants costing twice as much.

We only managed to reserve a lunchtime table for 2.15pm on Mother's Day. The restaurant was packed but.....the service was friendly, extremely efficient (without being rushed) and the food simple and excellent. The beef was rare, the yorkshires ENORMOUS, the roast potatoes crisp on the outside and soft centred. The whole experience made for such an enjoyable, relatively low key... More

We have been twice in the last month and on both occasions the food was good and service excellent. We had the early bird menu which was good value. the only disappointment was that the vegetarian main course option was risotto on both occasions. The other main course options were more varied each time.

We visited Cafe Lowrey again and as with previous visits it didn't fail to impress. The food was excellent, We both opted for the fillet steaks for mains and couldn't fault them. The staff were really attentive and service was impeccable. If you appreciate good food and and looking to choose from an extensive well selected wine list I'd suggest... More
