Lovely lunches

This is our favourite lunchtime eatery - lovely fresh food, simply cooked and really inexpensive. Sit in the glass-poofed interior in the Spring and it warms your body and soul.

Had to wait a little while for the meal, but the restaurant was quite busy and we hadn't booked, so we didn't mind. The food was very good, nice and hot and very tasty. Wonderful puddings. With a free glass of wine each the meal was excellent value and I have booked up to go again.

Great little restaurant, with great prices! Puts the chain restaurants to shame! Food was great with lots of choice as I am quite a picky eater. Highly recommend.

I haven't been here in quite a while having moved out of the area but just seeing the name come up in Trip Advsor made me remember how much I love this place! I loathe the term 'cheap and cheerful' but Cappucino Bar is verging on that, but in a great way. It's nice food that you're more than happy... More
