Poor, how can you get burgers so wrong? If you order a burger , bacon , cheese , mushroom, spicy , pulled pork. by definition they should contain a beef patty to qualify as a burger ! However not at Cheese and Alfies , the pulled pork "burger" is not a burger at all , its a pulled pork sandwich... More

We turned up without a reservation and a group of eight. No problem and with a smile which goes a long way. We were seated upstairs with good service and food. We were very pleased as we have had very patchy service here before, I think when they are busy and full they could turn you away with a smile... More

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
