Romantic evening with the other half

Myself and my partner came to one of the wine bars Saturday nights on 25.07 and had a fantastic evening, beautifully cooked food- the best fillet steak I have had in years cooked by David!

I have been here on several occasions and the food (especially the eggs benedict) is always of a high quality and really delicious. The mocha is the best around by a long shot. One thing I was slightly baffled by on my last visit was that they couldn't do sandwiches due to them running out of bread (even though they... More

Just tried David's new 'Italian Salad'. Vine ripe tomatoes, sweet red peppers, extra virgin olive oil, very special mozzarella, on oil drenched and toasted ciabatta, with the David twist! Thought I was back in Italy! Lovely!

A charming, small establishment that caters for adults only. Enjoy anything from a good coffee to a meal with good, friendly service. A no-stress diner where they supply papers if you're on your own (books if you have the time). Well prepared food reasonably priced. Has two rooms plus garden terrace. They have a great selection of cheeses for sale... More

A friend recommended this lovely place on Gainsborough street so I did my research on trip adviser and was surprised I hadn't heard of it before. Well David was just so welcoming and said we could sit anywhere in the spacious, chic and very clean cafe. There are lots of appetising croissants, cakes and cheeses displayed along with the numerous... More

Come here with one of my mates after being told how good the food is here. We didn't have a lot of money so just bought a sandwich. Bread was so dry and far to much dill in the dill Mayo in the smoked salmon sandwich. Won't be returning unfortunalty

We had a few hours to kill in Sudbury one Saturday afternoon and this independant coffee shop was an absolute gem of a find. Friendly staff, lovely ambience, great coffee and food. The sausage rolls were the best I have ever tasted !

We had a small family wedding reception of 26, we had 2 vegans, a vegetarian and someone with an extreme onion allergy - all dealt with ease by David's, the food was delicious. In the evening we filled the place with further friends and family, tables were quietly reorganized etc. nothing was too much trouble. Friendly, efficient staff, would highly... More

Great atmosphere, heavenly whitebait and the cheese platter is glorious! Today I discovered the terrace which looks great but I would miss the theatre...
