Burger night!

Visited with a group of friends and took advantage of the two for the price of one burger night which is great value. Booked online which was straight forward and convenient.

I just liked this place. I liked the staff, the menu, and the way it is decorated. The tea was lovely and the salad divine, and the chips were lovely. I cannot fault it.

We have always enjoyed very good food and attentive service when we visit Cheese and Alfies. I took my wife there for Valentines day and we had a fabulous time.

Okay so it was Mothers day but we had booked a table for 6 people for brunch. We not only waited an age for our drinks but it was an hour before we eventually got our meal . When it arrived the pans were scalding but the food was lukewarm, the black pudding was like rubber and the Boston beans... More

I brought my daughter here for her 13th birthday. We went on a Wednesday to make use of the buy one get one free burger offer they do. The burgers were out of this world, and they real made a fuss of my daughter. Definitely made the right choice coming here! Have recommended to all my friends x

We visited this quirky restaurant while we were visiting christchurch as it was on our tastecard voucher list. So glad we did! The food was delicious and very reasonably priced, the atmosphere was great but most of all the staff were fantastic. Our server was very friendly and attentive and the guy on the till (manager/owner) couldn't have been more... More

We had- breakfast at Cheese and Alfies yesterday- I had the Vegetarian Pan and my husband had the small pan. The breakfasts were generally ok but didn't stand out. We had to wait over an hour upon arrival to get our food.

If you fancy something a little bit different this is the place to go. The breakfasts here are amazing. The food is cooked and served in the same pan and is delicious

I have been to Cheese & Alfies 3 times now because each time I think I must be missing the special something that other reviewers are seeing. But now, I can say that I honestly don't understand the great reviews that this place gets. The food is OK but nothing special. It almost feels that it is trying too hard.... More

We had a fabulous lunch here on Wednesday. It's the first time we'd been, and although it's very contemporary and quirky, the service is reassuringly old-fashioned; effecient and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and staff had a smile on their faces. I had the fish finger sandwich and fries. It was immense! And my partner had a salad and... More
