Five of us ate here early evening on 25th March before going to the Mayflower. Because of train times we didn't have a lot of time to eat, so just had a main course. We tried the chicken and squash curry, which came with rice and onion bhaji, and the fish pie. Both were fresh and tasty. Just the right... More

If you fancy fresh and top-quality food, here you are, that's the place to go to. Nice service and atmosphere. The only criticism about this place is the lack of deals on food, it may be a productive suggestion. I will definitely be back.

We chose to eat here having read other reviews - as it is only a couple of minutes walk to the theatre. The food was delicious. We both chose the lasagne and chips, both of which were very tasty indeed. Homemade and generous portions. With thanks.

Having just brought an electric guitar and Amp in a shop opposite we wondered into this cafe one rainy Friday late afternoon for cover and to consider how we were going to get this equipment back to the car park. The atmosphere was buzzing friendly folk, lovely warm and inviting staff. We sat down with a bottle of beer and... More

this place has some of the best cakes you can eat and a good chance you will see some of the cast from any show on at the Mayflower.

I ate here back in July. I was on my own and going to the theatre so wanted something quick. The food was lovely, all home made and good value. The atmosphere was such that I felt comfortable eating on my own. I ran out of time for dessert but was kindly given it in a takeaway container complete with... More

Had a lovely lunch with the family here. Great service. Kids had well filled bacon sarnies and we had hot ciabattas - very tasty. And the chips were great - really crispy!

We booked a pre-theatre table here but we need not have bothered as there was only one other diner when we arrived. The bottled beer is a bit pricey but the draught not so bad, so I had that. They seem to give out free snacks to people who just buy a drink but not to people ordering food, which... More

Portions were very generous! I made the mistake of ordering the hand-cut home-made chips and couldn't finish. But the grilled vegetable wrap was very good.
