I think for a lunch time menu, in an area that has lots of competition it is consistently good , it's reasonable priced.

Had lunch here with my wife, who enjoyed her jacket potato which had plenty of topping. I had a really nice coated chicken Panini. Portions were decent, as was the service. A decent pot of tea too! So impressed, I intend to try the full restaurant evening menu soon.

The staff were lovely and the food was excellent but we had to ask for the cheaper menu. It was supposed to be smaller portions but there was more than enough, we were full!

http://www.barracudawatford.com/ I eat there quite often. It is a tiny place, but smart and cosy. It is typical cafe until lunch and very nice diner after 6 pm. You can eat there every meal of the day and it is perfect every time. Portions are very honest and food presented nicely. But what I love the most about this place... More
