Our son treated us to lunch out here on Patrick's Day. Busy spot! We were found a table behind a pillar (were we out of sight AND out of mind?), and took off our coats. And put them back on again! The chill was setting in with us, as for others around who were also wearing outdoor clothing. I asked... More

We have eaten in Cafe Merlot once a month whilst visiting family in the area for a number of years now. The quality of the food and the innovation and variety of the a la carte and set Sunday menus has been excellent every time. While the food can sometimes take a little while to arrive the service has always... More

Was recommended to try this place out, so went for lunch. The food was well presented and the service was good. The down side of the time here was the management having a full scale rant at the waiting staff, in full view of the diners wasn't right in my books. But all an all a good cheap lunch in... More

We had dinner here on 3rd of March 2015 an it was absolutely delicious. The food, atmosphere and decor were all fantastic. We particularly liked the smoked salmon starter and the Miso salmon was one of the nicest fish dishes I have had in a good while. John, the owner was really friendly and was able to advise us about... More

Amazing menu which read well and didn't disappoint. The restaurant is in a wonderful setting and fantastic service. Don't be fooled by the 'cafe' title, this is much more than a cafe. I eat out a lot and this is one of the best meals I have had in one of the best restaurants. Just go.

On arrival the service was excellent, very attentive, we ordered the pre theatre menu and were encouraged to order as a big table was coming in. We did appreciate being told though did notice a deterioration in service with the added pressure on staff. This is understandable but frustrating for other diners. Our starter was gorgeous thought the toast was... More
