Burger Night, fantastic food

We had the luck to turn up on their Burger night, a warm welcome and great choice of options (including Fish and vegetarian). Good sized portions and unhurried service (in a good way), felt very relaxed and felt as if we could have stayed all night. Recommend you try the Espresso Bonbon. You'll... read more

We went here on a recommendation, and we were not disappointed, the food was good, and the service was warm and friendly.

I have never used one of these sites before as I've always though I was too old for things like this, but I felt the need to praise the waitress I had during my visit. I visited yesterday afternoon, and was very happy with the taste and quality of the food I had, and the staff were very attentive. However... More

Have used here many times and all visits good. Sadly yesterday my friend & I both ordered Pan Haggarty which said on menu sautéed potatoes, fried egg and ham topped with cheese. My friend had this last time and the little fried potatoes were lovely. What came yesterday was shocking. Boiled potatoes of quite medium size just cut in half... More

could not get a table where we intended to eat so came in here. Service nice and very quick apart from dessert, but we were happy to wait by then anyway, and the staff took time to come and explain they were sorting out large party first. Food was ok, we couldn't get what we ordered (slow cooked ribs) unfortunately... More

I used to visit this restaurant very regular last year but after an embarrassing encounter with Tastecard vowed I'd never return! So after a year we decided to give Cheese at Alfie's another go. I called Saturday afternoon to book a table and asked if they accepted Tastecard on a Saturday night, the reply was "No" so we turned up... More

I do love coming here! It's the place I took my boyfriend for our first date! (we've been together a good few years now!) I feel fish finger sandwiches are the way forward! It's always tasty and relaxed. A good place to take a book for a afternoon coffee or impress with a scrumptious lunch! Staff always happy! And there... More

I don't know why this place has been subject to such appalling reviews lately? We visited for strong coffee and cake mid bike ride and were definitely NOT disappointed. The lady waitressing was so friendly and helpful. We had fresh Victoria sponge and Americanos. We sat outside in the sunshine on the pretty blue table and chairs. All of the... More

Where do I even begin. I visited Cheese and Alfie's twice over Easter on the basis of investigating the previous bad reviews of this establishment, and as a similar business owner my self, I wanted to see if the reviews were just customers not getting there own way or if they were accurate. And what a surprise I had. FOOD:... More
