Went into Boyles as it has great reviews but was sadly disappointing. Inside is lovely great selection of buns and cakes. But me and my partner order one of the specials which was advertised as chicken and chorizo pasta with garlic bread when are food arrived and we took our first bit and all we could taste was sweet chilli...

Homemade mushroom soup & sandwich combo £6. Tomato & pepper soup & sandwich combo. Both soups delicious. Kids shared a kids meal of chicken gougons, beans & chips. Latte, tea & 2 fantastic cost over £21. Service fast. Not too many smiles from staff as they seemed under pressure. 4* because of the lovely soups, otherwise 3*.

This cafe has a good light lunch menu with combos on offer, namely soup and wraps/toasties etc for £6. Good value. The soup was good as was the panini I had. Pleasant and efficient staff, with a manager who has a sense of humour all made this for a pleasant visit.

The service was really slow. But the food was good for a lunch bite. Bit crowded and not enough baby seats to go around.

Hi there, thanks for coming into see us. I am very sorry that you felt service was slow, I can only apologise for this but as you mention in your review we seemed crowded.. As a seasonal town and area we can, during peak times, get really busy and our team works as hard as possible to ensure service remains... More

Yet another visit to this warm & friendly cafe. Delicious homemade vegetable soup & toastie for a very reasonable £6. Will be going in to try something else next month.
