Not many tables and zero degrees outside. But there was something gorgeous about drinking a hot mocca and eating brownie, with blankets on my knees and a hot water bottle. Is always busy, lovely service, nice old building. A good place for a Saturday afternoon people watch.

Came here for breakfast with a friend this morning and it was lovely! Very calm atmosphere, staff were friendly and polite with very quick service considering they had a full house. Very reasonable prices for quality if food and drink, also the tea was made with tea leaves (yes!) which, as a self professed tea-snob, I loved.

I visited here with a friend last week for breakfast, grabbed the last table available so no problem. Great menu selection for both breakfast and lunch. I had the "salmon stack" which included 2 big slices of sourdough toast, vine tomatoes, smoked salmon,2 poached eggs and lots of avocado! Was really impressed with the portion size and tasted amazing too!... More

myself and 2 friends came today for breakfast. The menu was amazing and the food was stunning. My only complaint would be to wait for all people to finish eating before clearing the table as my friend was a slow eater and took a while and she felt a bit pressured so left some in the end.

We have been here a couple of times for lunch and we were never disappointed. The ingredients were fresh and the menu it is various, not boring. The sweets are really good, so you can go also for an afternoon tea.

Popped in for lunch. Interesting and varied choice of food available within a very pleasant atmosphere. The deli itself has a range of cheeses and home made pastries available alongside a range of other interesting foodstuffs and drinks. Find a table, peruse the menus and the boards around the establishment and order at the counter. Attentive and courteous staff. Popular... More

Found this little foodie gem quite by accident whilst passing through when we stopped for coffee and cake. So good we returned 2 days later for lunch. It didn't disappoint. The food was excellent. Best we've had in a while and a really good flat white coffee. The staff were friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back even though... More

I was surprised by the lack of open tea shops on a Sunday in the area, so we had no option but to visit The Old Theatre Deli. Some lovely touches did not go unnoticed; blankets and hot water bottles to comfort the customers who opted to sit outdoors, we were lucky to have found a table indoors. While we... More

Popped in for a cup of tea. Young waitress was unsmiling. We sat at the table she had directed us to and waited and waited. When I asked when she would be serving us, she replied that there was no waitress service and that we had to order at the counter. Why could she not have suggested this to us,... More
