A nice little place

This is a lovely little café down the Cobbled streets of Sadler Gate. "The Kitchen" suits it's surroundings. Only a small place and the table and chairs are quite close together. We had a share platter... very nice with different foods to sample. The service is friendly and quick. Will... read more

I have visited here several times and have only ever gone in the mornings for breakfast. I recently found the service to be poor especially on a Saturday morning when the younger staff members are working there. The waitress didn't even bother to come and ask if our food was ok and when she came to collect our plates and... More

Came for breakfast that was really really tasty! Ordered at 11:30 which was last orders for breakfast and dos a sense of being rushed to make an order. So my other half rushed her choice and decided that she had made the wrong because of it. But apart from that nice coffee and atmosphere. Will return!

Popped in here with a friend for lunch. Lovely cafe atmosphere with wooden tables and chairs. Decor nice without being too chintzy. Service was fine. Not rushed by staff with our meals which was nice. I had panini served with a lovely salad. My friend had lovely burger which he enjoyed. Presentation of food lovely. Very nice. Would pop in...

It seems I'm not the only one who thinks the Kitchen could do with sorting out their prices. I ordered a sandwich from here to take out and it was just all bread. Huge doorstep slices and small filling. £4.50!

I wouldn't come back to this establishment again as I've left a review before. Not a good one. But my colleagues came back with coffees last week from here and none of them were full cups. It grates on me that this cafe charges the earth for a drink yet cannot honour its customers by filling the cup up. Shoddy.
