Wondering Why We Keep Winning Awards Lately? Do you remember when food used to taste amazing? Days before the supermarkets piled in with their frozen, pre-packaged chemical concoctions. I remember when my Granddad used to make even simple toast & butter taste incredible; thick slices of freshly baked bread, smothered in real salted butter and it used to taste... Just oh so amazing! But somewhere down the line, we've lost this. It seems everyday food's all about speed, microwaves and pre-packaged. What? Day-to-day, we've now become used to bland, tasteless food, to the point where some basic fast food can even be classed as "tasty". I'm not having it...

Had lunch at chin chin and would definitely recommend it. It's a small cafe that's decorated beautifully with friendly and efficient staff. The food was tasty and I particularly enjoyed the pulled pork scotch egg - a must!!!

I've been eating at Chin Chin since it opened, and it has always been fantastic. Yesterday we went for the first time since they switched to a tapas style menu, and it was really really good. Everything we tried was delicious and the service was top notch.

Great food, great atmosphere, great service! Perfect if you like to try lots of foods and a boutique atmosphere. Great espresso martini! We went for dinner but will be back for brunch and Sunday lunch.

Went here in a party of 10 for my birthday Sunday Lunch. The food was excellent - all three courses but unfortunately the Yorkshire puddings were burnt to a crisp so much so that the restaurant became a bit smokey! The service was well timed and not pressured at all. Nice house wines. Will definitely go back and see if... More

This little restaurant is a gem. It is run by the nicest guy ever who has the best attitude towards British revival food. The venue is intimate and yet not crowded. The tea is all served in lovely vintage china and it's just the best. The sunday lunch is gorgeous, the food is simply yet accomplished. Brunch is very reasonably... More

I had afternoon tea with a friend for my birthday, the whole atmosphere of Chin Chin is warm and friendly. The cakes and sandwiches were lovely, the scones were as big as the saucers, they were delicious. Would definitely go again.
