I was impressed with Chale Green stores. It sells all your everyday useful items but it has the added advantage of a small restaurant and deli. We had a lunch of quiche with salad, French style ham croissant with salad and coffee. It was delicious but certainly expensive and the portions quite small. They do sell a lovely range of... More

Food was the best I've had on the island. Staff were very polite and extremely helpful. Nice variety menu with something for everyone along with some amazing specials and puddings/cakes. Coffee was delicious. Good prices for what you get. Would come here over and over again. Looks like it gets very busy so next time i will book, just in... More

A big surprise to have a bistro of this quality on the back of a village shop! We thought we'd just have a coffee whilst passing, but the menu, ambience and general look of the place impressed us enough for us to make a detour for lunch here another day. The staff are really friendly. The food was excellent, though... More

So far I have tried 7 items from the menu and they all have been excellent.... food of this standard would... More

Yes it is only a local store/newsagent/post office with a small café at the back of the store. I have only ever just stopped off here for a coffee and a slice of cake as a pit stop on cycle trips around the back of the Island. Nice garden out the back which is a nice sun trap in the... More
