There was a large group of us so we thought that we would get good service as there were only a few tables in the cafe but we were wrong. Had issues ordering the food as they didnt seem to have enough staff. then they didnt have enough menus. took nearly an hour before the first course arrived. When we... More

I am so sorry Chris to read of your bad experience. We are really highly rated on service so it is very disappointing that this was the problem on the night you visited. I am aware of the night in question and you are right we were understaffed. This was caused by a confusion by some staff with the rota.... More

Central to the hotel and a discount when you stay at The Sandringham Hotel. Food was reasonably priced even without the discount

Came across this cafe by chance. Very quest, with only a few tables in use on Saturday lunchtime.(which is sometimes a worry). However, I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were happy and helpful = especially a chap named Alex. The food was a cut above your usual "cafe" . Good selection of fresh, seasonal produce. Well cooked, and attention to... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am very glad that you have enjoyed yourself. Unfortunately the new shopping centre has taken the majority of business away from us in St. Mary Street during shop hours. Hopefully people will read your review and see that there is a good alternative to waiting for tables in the brand restaurants.... More

Spent a very nice evening here recently. Had a delicious dinner and listened to some good blues. Definitely a place to go for a nice evening out with food, drink and music. Very pleasant and helpful staff, speedy service, reasonable prices. Keep up the fine work.

We were staying in the Sandringham hotel above and had a discount. However even without this it was excellent value, both for the food and drinks with very friendly and helpfull staff. We really enjoyed the live music on both nights and would definitely recommend going there

We stopped with 2 kids. The food was ok but the staff were fantastic. Alex and mark couldn't have been more helpful. We ended up staying and listening to some of the jazz which was excellent.

We have been meaning to visit this little place for ages but never got around to it . Finally we popped in on Monday for lunch. So glad we did !
