Went here on a Saturday evening and managed to get a couple of seats at the bar and had a terrific dinner/evening. Note you can't book so there may be a wait for a table - we only waited around 20 mins - time for drink - and the wait was probably short as we got there fairly early -... More

Love it here - the food is so good. Gets a little busy sometimes, like frantic so you need to choose a good time. Slow cooked lamb is delicious, any soup on offer superb, always finish with a madeleine!

We ate at this restaurant as a group of 5 recently. We arrived earl - maybe 5pm - and only just managed to get a table. This place is very popular. I am real foodie but I found the menu baffling - pretentious in every sense - over complicated use of words and it isn't clear what to order. I... More

Absolutely best place to have either breakfast. Very nice atmosphere, friendly staff and good food, except for the fact that my dining companions were vegetarian and they had a limited choices.

Having dined here previously for breakfasts and dinners, we were very impressed. This time we had lunch, and were stunned by the high quality of our melt in the mouth dish. I only have two more words for you - lamb shoulder.

I'll be honest, I was in a bad mood when we headed to Cumulus Inc on Saturday. Having just flown down from Sydney, it was cold, starting to rain and all I wanted was some brunch. I had in mind poached eggs, a smoothie or something like that and a friend of ours had suggested Cumulus Inc. So with no... More

We had brunch here recently as we were staying just around the corner. Being a lazy weekend away, we were having brunch quite late and arrived at Cumulus 5 minutes before the brunch menu finished. The staff were very accommodating and found us spots at the bar and took our orders immediately. Both coffee and juices were excellent and were... More

I like the place. It is a bit pricey, but good quality comes in good price. I ordered the homemade crumpets. It came with jams and rooftop honey. The coffee is good too. The place is quiet in a good way and the interior is very simple yet so bold. It has a lot of characters.

This place has a nice little set up! The service is great and the food is even better. I had the Cumulus Inc. breakfast and the Shakshouka and they were both perfect - they really know their eggs!

Hadn't even intended to eat here and had just popped in for a drink. Went upstairs to their bar/eating area and were accommodated at two seats at a bar. It was very busy despite it being 1830 on a Monday evening. Good wine list with several by the glass. In fact they seemed to be willing to open bottles if... More
