Many of my work colleagues had recommended The Café Cru that I decided to give it a try. I ordered from the Fish on Friday set menu: Prawn Cocktail - Atlantic prawns with crisp lettuce leaves & Café Cru’s cocktail sauce. The sauce was far too acidic but I tolerated it as a new experience but not to my taste.... More

Drab interior, find it hard to see why its rated so highly. Lacks atmosphere, food ok but lacks wow factor. Customer service good. Didn't meet expectations won't be returning

Nothing bad but nothing great either. Wine was average, steak sirloin was a bit tough. All in all an average visit.

One of our locations for a 'Special' meal. Always a good menu, prepared specially for you so there is a little delay between ordering and appearance of the food. Maitre D always ready with a laugh and a smile. Drinks list always has some good moderately priced wines as well as some up market bottles, the hotel manager writes each... More

Six of our family dined here and the choices and quality of the food was excellent we mostly chose... More

Popped in as we were staying in the area, we arrived 10 minutes before opening (although we originally planned to eat at The Terrace). I asked the hotel if the Terrace was open but unfortunately not in November evenings, they did however open Cafe Cru up for us to save waiting. We were shown to our booth & were given... More
