It's OK

I'd eaten at other Stein eateries, which are all good, but today my wife and I were after a light lunch, so we opted to try the cafe. The menu is small, but we found what we wanted, BLTs. The food was good, the service was good, and with two glasses of Prosecco, the bill was a little over £25.... read more

On arrival our table wasn't ready - shown to a table in the chilly " back yard". To cut a long story short it took 50 minutes to be seated and eventually order our mains. Other people were served ahead of us. The curry was dry, papadam stale, pastry on treacle tart was under cooked and chocolate cake a little... More

We are there recently. On arrival our table wasn't ready so we were shown into the chilly "back yard" to sit and wait. Eventually our drinks order was taken, some time later our appetiser order was taken. After 50 minutes we were eventually seated and our orders taken. People who had been waiting less time than us were served first!!... More

We went here for my birthday and it did not disappoint. Delicious food and amazing wine. The seating is decent and the atmosphere was great. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant. It is a little gem. The thing which makes this place even more appealing is how reasonably priced everything is. We will definitely be coming back on our next... More

This is an excelant venue for an eat out breakfast. Supper quality and great service. A full English Breakfast with toast and tea for less than £10 has to be good value as well.

Not much more to say! Me and my girlfriend shared a portion of chips from here and it's safe to say we'll never forget them!

Booked into the cafe for dinner with another couple and friendly staff. Attentive but not intrusive. Food good as one would expect, but not fine dining. The bill came and went and a taxi was asked for and the waitress came back after ten minutes to say all taxis were otherwise engaged until midnight (time was 1015) however the manager,... More
