Great traditional breakfast. Good value for money. You have a choice what size breakfast you want. Basic surroundings but the food makes up for it. They sell milk bread bacon sausages etc.Well worth a visit.

An absolute must if you are in the area . An unassuming cafe from the outside / could be a transport cafe but inside an excellent eating experience awaits. A clean friendly place where you can see the food being prepared. Brilliant breakfast - don't go large unless you are sharing! A good selection of well priced first class food.... More

Been to the Lady Charlotte on many occasions. Yes, it is a workers cafe, and that us what they are geared towards but the food, especially the breakfasts are fantastic. With service second to none and it being spotlessly clean I would highly recommend this establishment.

Absolutely delicious piping hot Sunday dinners served in an unpretentious café setting. Generous portions also. I have rarely eaten better home cooked food even in the poshest of eateries,

What I liked about this place was, they knew their audience and catered for them .... They didn't try to be something that they are not. Cheap and cheerful, lovely customer service and good hearty food ..... I can't really see what more you would want or expect from this place. Ideal.
