Delicious Food, Great Atmosphere

I love the Nutshell, food is consistently good, great coffee, always a buzz around lunchtime and the healthfood shop is great. The serving staff are not the friendliest, this was apparent on this visit. This was the only thing that stopped me giving the full 5 stars.

We had the open Crab plate + cod/hake - both simply sublime. Lovely atmosphere. Great board of specials. Vegetarian food & fresh fish dishes a speciality. Very friendly staff. Great coffee.

Good ingredients, catered for children (3 and 5 year old), fab salads and seafood. The staff could not have been nicer and for a change my kids got good food. The coffee was good too. Added extra there was a box of toys for the kids!!

I haven't been in the Nutshell for a while but it was then and I believe still is a lovely place to eat at any time of the day. Be it a cup of coffee or lunch I have always found the food very good and service adequate. Recommend their Chocolate Biscuit Cake if you can get your hands on... More

To have such good food one must pay a little extra. The staff were lovely and so considerate. oh I also had... More

Small cafe/restaurant located to the rear of the health food shop. Good selection on the menu and service is very good. Food is very nice but prices are outrageously priced.
