Juicer broken so unable to... More

We only stopped for a smoothie, but we had friendly service and a nice refreshing smoothie. The place is small but there is an outside seating area.

Went with my two sons for lunch. Ordered single burger. Kids cheese burger with fries, £4 and Steak Sub, no drinks. Total bill £17+. My boys did enjoy their burgers but my sub was a joke. Very little steak and loads of semi cooked onions. By all means go and have your meal there alongside your chef who smokes on... More

Fantastic lunch, busy atmosphere. The chef served us at the till as the waiting staff were really busy. Really pleasant service from him and the lady serving outside table. Only downside was having to use pub toilet across the road.

We ate lunch here today and were pleased with the menu choices and the service. The only concern is that a couple next to us chain smoked throughout our meal. Please display a no smoking sign even on the outside seating area which is covered by a canopy 😁

Last night I enjoyed a first class meal at Fistral Chef. Fast service, a perfectly cooked steak and fresh tasty vegetables. A great spot to sit and enjoy the evening. I'll be back!

Visited here for lunch, the waitress was rubbish, she didn't even know how to work the machine to give us a drink she wasn't that friendly or helpful. The food made up for it though, the Chef is amazing. I had a tasty crispy duck wrap and my hubby had a chicken wrap, we shared a bowl of chips and... More

This place doesn't look much from outside, but I really enjoyed my evening meal there. Food. We had chicken wings in blue cheese sauce and fishcakes as starters, followed by ribeye steak and a house burger. Faultlessly cooked with nice touches like red cabbage coleslaw. Service. Bubbly attentive and considerate. We felt very welcome. Ambience. Relaxed cafe feel. It's a... More
