Emilies Cafe and Takeaway is a lovely place to sit and enjoy a light meal, coffee or a cool drink. The staff are delightful and always keen to ensure you are happy. Bob, the Aussie owner, has been around for years and is usually on site and ready for a good chat. Its a great place to find out what... More

I stayed here for a week and I was appauled at Bob's behaviour. He was abusive towards his staff, even grabbed one of his female employees by the arm and threw her off the premises (needless to say she was sacked) for turning up 10 mins late for her shift! Screaming at Emily constantly. I am horrified at the way... More

Always helpful, always smiling, always welcoming. The takeaway is open 24/7, and the food is delicious. Moreover, me and my boyfriend being of... More

The ambiance isn't bad for a takeaway joint, with the service windows cut into the side of a 40' container and wooden topped tables to eat at. The plastic chairs provided... More
