Have been to the Black Dog a number of times over the years - the food is good, the coffee is great and the atmosphere is a bit of Australia in TW. My one big complaint though is the extraction - after going in there, you stink of a chips/cooking smell for the rest of the day. Wish they'd sort... More

Title says it all. Service is friendly and quite fast. Good selection of cakes but every time I order coffee, it turns up luke warm! Drives me mad as their cakes are good and they're family friendly. I just like hot coffee.

I dropped in here for a quick coffee during a wander round town. The coffee was delicious, the atmosphere was warm and inviting and the staff were friendly. There was a great selection of papers and magazines to flick through as well. I'll now be a regular at The Black Dog.

Saturday Lunch, good location and great food and service. Not been before but will go back. Had a lovely Cherizo, Potato and goats cheese salad and my wife had a risotto plus 2 italian lemonades, under £20. Nice

Food okay, but drink & sides missed from order and were served late. Quality of food okay. Atmosphere is pleasant. Clearly well liked as all the tables were constantly busy. Tea wasn't hot enough

You know what? I really like this cafe - I mean, REALLY like it. And I guess I've been about a hundred times. Best thing is, it's consistently good, with great coffee and excellent food throughout the day - carefully and considerately prepared, with some WOW flavours thrown in for good measure, even in the simplest foods. For breakfast or... More

Simply the best place for a brunch Benedict style (eggs not Sherlock). A really good place for a cake and a very well made coffee.
