One of my favourite places

I have been a faithful devotee of the Honey Pot since its Lichfield Street days. Met my sis and bro in law here for brunch. All were very happy with our choices. The staff were friendly and efficient as ever.

Popped in for a late lunch and found staff friendly and polite. Not sure why other reviews have said poor service as we found it fine on quite a busy day. I am vegetarian and had the Roast Beetroot salad which was full of delicious taste surprises right to the last bite. NOT one of those boring salads whets all... More

Nice wee cafe with lovely atmosphere. The owner needs to update the location site address. It took a while to be given a menu even though they gave us water on arrival and I was about to go and ask for a menu when they came at last. The waitress was pleasant and our lunch dishes were tasty. Main lunch... More

We were very excited to be visiting this place but were so let down. Service was disgusting,we had to ask for the table to be cleared! The cafe was nearly empty and the staff sat at the bar and talked loudly amounts themselves... We even had to go over and ask to order some cake, which was accompanied by a... More

Hope we caught them on a bad day, poor service and very average food waiter should go elsewhere if he's not interested in customer service. Such a shame as we thought they had changed with the new owners.

We first came across the honey pot from its Facebook marketing. On our first visit we were impressed and had great meals, but since then we've been a few times now, at different times on different days and each time we've had a different experience. Currently it's an underwhelming place to visit, which is disappointing as I feel that I... More

My husband and I thought we would try the Honey Pot for a late lunch as we had heard it had not long re open in Sydenham Christchurch and as we work close by we would give it another chance, WOW from the moment we entered we were welcomed by the most lovely waitress. The service was quick, friendly and... More
