This cafe sells gorgeous food in attractive premises with a delightful pavement area. But time after time, the dozy service lets it down. The staff are polite but everything takes ages to arrive, even when they aren't busy, and items ordered together arrive after further significant delays. I gave it one more chance today - ordered a cup of coffee... More

Attractively located, with a large outside sitting area for people watching (though it's not so spacious inside), a reasonable choice of baked goods and deli-style savoury light lunch/snack options. Everything on display looked fresh and appealing. We visited just before 4pm on a Sunday afternoon; the place wasn't busy but service was lacklustre and not particularly welcoming. Three of us...

This place is an amazing little find . Its right in the centre of Southwell just around the corner from the amazing minster. Tons of outdoor seating with really great table service. We managed to get a table inside after ordering. This took ages as there is so much to chose from , all of it home made from grilled... More

Been here three times so far in my lunch break with a colleague and it never disappoints. Lots of unusual foods, flavours and combinations, which are great to try as I do like to try new dishes whenever possible. Had a Baked salmon, honey and mint salad last time which was great!

A great little deli with some local and homemade produce such as pies, cheeses, quiche, etc. Try a brunch or lunch. Choose from the special board or menu and you will not be disappointed. The sandwiches are substantial too.

Difficult to make a choice, from the delicious food on display in this deli-cafe. Choice made, food arrived quickly, served by friendly staff. A little disappointing that the floor underneath the table had not been cleared before we sat down.

We're staying with friends from Canada who live in Southwell and they took us here for a snack. We ended up coming back several times. First, it's the site of one of five old Georgian theaters on the UK and well worth a little peek. A fellow patron took me on a tour to show it off. Second, it has... More

My partner and I visited Southwell to do a walk as we have previously. We visited the old theatre Deli, it was very welcoming and the staff were very polite and friendly. Both of us had tea which was lovely and presented well in individual teapots with tea cosies. The cakes all looked amazing and was hard to choose from.... More
