Hungover? Go see Charlie.

Thanks to Charlie Harper's, many a burning hangover has been doused in a disgustingly good breakfast. Charlie's Big Breakfast or veggie breakfast is a must if you've been particularly inebriated!

Best veggie breakfast of any I've eaten (and that is a lot). Yum. I always take visitors here for some grub. Nice informal atmosphere and opportunity for people watching if you get a seat outside.

Have eaten here many times over the years, never been disappointed with the food or service. Food is always fresh and decent portions, actually too much for me as am not a big eater! Good value too.

Although we arrived late in the afternoon, we received a friendly greeting. It was exceptionally clean and had a lovely atmosphere. We only had a drink and scone, The scone was extremely fresh and melted in the mouth . I was surprised at the size of it. It was huge. Love the idea that it is part indoors and part... More

The café is half-inside and half-out which gives it a nice feel. The staff were good and the breakfasts are excellent. My bacon had been overdone and was "snappy" but the rest of the meal was good, particularly the mushrooms.

Was looking for the train station early in the morning, went in the wrong direction, but came upon Charlie Harper's and decided I needed a good breakfast. I had eggs on toast with grilled tomatoes and bacon with a pot of tea. It was the right choice. There were other choices, including several vegetarian, and I think just about anyone... More

We often go here for breakfast and coffee. In the past, over a year ago, the food was a bit greasy but now, it is much improved and offers tasty fayre. Their big breakfast is really satisfying on the morning after the night before.
