After a long week at work I can't think of a better place to unwind. The shabby-chic atmospher (I hope that's what they're going for) is unpretentious. The coffee is really good. A great place to while away a half an hour at the end of the week.

As a vegetarian I always love it here. Good food especially veggie breakfast and veggie stack and the friendliest welcome in town. One small criticism - prices are pretty damn high so we don't come very often.

We had a fantastic family meal here at Cheese and Alfie's on their burger night (buy 1 get one free). The gluten free burger roll was excellent as were the skinny fries! The burgers are all hand made to order and come in a range of combinations. The pulled pork was apparently delicious though sadly not gluten free. There were... More

As locals we dropped in for a coffee & cake, walked in to the empty cafe, to be greeted by a girl who looked at her watch before even looking up at me!! Then told" no food our kitchen is shut, this is what's left" whilst pointing to 2 dried up tea cakes & then told " I can't hear... More

went in and straight away saw what a lovely welcoming place it was, filled with character and charm. the service was fast and the waitresses were polite with knowledge about the restaurant and food being served, they very friendly and helpful. the food was gorgeous, very fresh, still hot and well worth the money, if I didn't live in Lincolnshire...

Quaint little cafe called Cheese and Alfie's. We spied this cafe the evening before while wandering through Christchurch and thought we would give it a go as the menu just suited our requirements. On arrival we were as if we had a reservation ! For breakfast, must be popular, after a quick check upstairs there was 1 spare table -... More

Went yesterday evening and loved the place. My partner said she had the best meal in years.. Service was excellent and the food was fantastic...I wish we had one in our home town! I love their philosophy.. "Work hard and be nice to people.." It's informal and friendly but also highly efficient..and really worth trying.

We have tried to get into Cheese & Alfie's before but at times it gets very busy and seating is limited. This time there was plenty of room when we called in for a coffee, so we had a choice of seating. Staff seemed friendly and wi-fi is free. There is a fairly extensive food menu with breakfasts a speciality.... More

We go here for breakfast which is not "standard fayre". The atmosphere is light and friendly and certainly welcome children of all ages. The food is good and wholesome, not dead cheap but enjoyable. The acid test for me is can they make a poached egg - more difficult than you would think - they certainly can. They also make... More

Our second visit and standards are clearly slipping. 2 out of the four meals we ordered where inedible. A child's burger shouldn't be too hard to get right but 3 fragments of dry and bitter burnt meat where inside the bun rather than the expected pattie. Then my wife cut into her fishcake and the smell of ammonia was clear.... More
