Stumbled upon Pumpkin's Bistro in the search for a cafe with a toilet for our 2 year old. The food was very good, we especially enjoyed the chilli wrap. The children were welcomed and there was a good variety for them to eat. The service was quick and efficient. It was a nice place to have lunch and relax. Would... More

We stumbled across this restaurant and were thrilled to fine such a wife range of vegetarian options on the menu - all of which sounded delicious. While my husband went with the Mediterranean chicken (which he loved) I went for the vegetarian chilli with couscous - it was delicious! The service was fabulous - the waitress was attentive and chatty,... More

This is an informal restaurant with a small but nicely varied menu. Portion sizes are just right, there are good vegetarian options and the prices are very, very reasonable. The service was good considering the place was quite busy and there was only one waitress on duty but she was friendly and cheerful all the time. I'd been here several... More

This bistro currently offers evening dining from 5.30 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays in addition to it's daytime service. The Specials menu and à la carte both offer a good varied choice including vegetarian. We enjoyed options from both. The food was well prepared and tasted great. Service was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is very pleasant.
