Good location, friendly staff, great food

This was our first experience at Central Eating and it won't be the last. Friendly and efficient service and the sandwiches and hot drinks we had were good. Ham cooked on the premises by the owner, as, I believe, are a lot of the other foods on offer. Will certainly make it a regular on our... read more

Had a lovely relaxed, and beautifully cooked breakfast here this morning. New owners who had only had it a couple of weeks. Refurbished and new decor, all indicating that this couple really want to make a success of this restaurant. I had a breakfast that was 'off menu' but was not problem. Lovely lean bacon, really tasty and good quality... More

Came here Saturday afternoon with my girlfriend, The service was friendly and very quick. My girlfriend ordered Apple juice, expecting it to be just from a bottle. Instead she was given freshly squeezed Apple juice made right in front of us, and it was delicious!!! The place was clean and tidy with a nice simple display. Would definitely come here... More

As a vegetarian they have a large range of options for me, the breakfast and halloumi sandwich are amazing. I've still to this day not managed to finish what's on my plate as the portions are very...

We came here with a bunch of girls on a very rainy March morning to start off our shopping spree. We had the full English breakfast as well as the veggie version...and it was the perfect way to start the day. The portions were super generous, so a few of us struggled to get it all in. The service was... More
