Excellent food and friendly service. Briliant beakfast (try the soda stack) and good selection of fresh sandwiches etc for lunch. And the best coffee I have ever had in UK!

Went with my friend for breakfast, the soda stack was impressive, due to personal preference some of it was swapped out & this was offered by staff & at no extra cost ... unlike other places! The breakfast muffins were amazing, so tasty especially the chilli jam!! Would definitely recommend & hope to return again soon

I love the thought that has gone into the decor here - it has a really fresh and modern but friendly vibe. Maybe it's a little hipster, but that's a good thing! There is a great range available on the lunch menu, and the coffee is very good. Friendly staff and a relaxed vibe.

Called in for a bite at about 2:30/2:45 to be told there was no sandwiches left. I had wrongly assumed dishes like sandwiches or panninis were made to order and food would be served until near closing time - 5pm on this day. I was offered a tray bake - not what you'd call lunch. The girl behind the counter... More

We have been to The Fat Gherkin on many occasions and decided that we needed to treat ourselves to lunch again here last Wednesday. The staff are very welcoming and cheerful and the food is absolutely brilliant. The Thai Bacon & Potato cakes are fantastic - you get two of them and your choice of salad - I always choose... More

If you want a good atmosphere, fabulous food and excellent service this is the place to go. Try the skinny chicken with salads and an oatie for afters. Yum. Run by Alwyn and mike, helped along by Jacky and Jenny it is a great spot for a catchup with friends over coffee or a relaxed lunch.

A lovely little find. We've been twice now and will definitely return. The food is fresh and presentation is clean, and on both occasions I have struggled to decide what I want to order because everything on the menu is very tempting!! Staff are very friendly and very good at ensuring your needs are met. Only negative would be on... More
