Good food, awful service.

As we walked in, our presence was not acknowledged by the only waitress working, so we chose our own table and sat ourselves down. The waitress moped over and cleared half of the dirty plates already there, yet left the other half for us to sit amongst. It took 20 minutes to be asked what we would... read more

Took the family for a late breakfast. The staff were friendly and accommodating and we all enjoyed a really good breakfast. We were there for about 2 hours and were not, at any time, hassled to complete our breakfast and leave. It was very relaxing and we will certainly go again.

This place is just a shame. They don't have enough staff. I've been in here before and it has taken over 20 minutes just to get our orders taken or a drink ordered. Food takes at least 40 minutes to be served after ordering, even if its only a sandwich. I just don't think having to wait this long is... More

Had lunch here recently. Opted for a croque monsieur with salad and fries and my husband had a steak baguette with fries and onion rings. The portions of fries were massive, we could have easily have shared one plate. Seems like such a waste, they really don't need to serve that much. Food was good no complaints there. Price wise,...

I have visited The fireside many times for both coffee and lunch over the years. The service has always been and unfortunately still is appalling! If you want good food then The fireside is the place...... but if time is limited, avoid, avoid avoid! I have waited up to 25 minutes to be served a coffee and almost 5o minutes... More

This place always has nice food, normally let down by ludicrously slow service. However, there was only one table apart from us so service was good. Decent enough all day breakfast.

We arrived and were surprised to find it so busy on a Sunday morning. The coffee was lovely and the food was good, if a bit oily, however we waited a long time to be served (we ended up going to the bar), and a long time for our food to arrive (approximately 60 mins). However, to give the staff... More

Visited several times now over the past few months to give the place a chance to improve on service. The food is excellent, local sourced product and extremely tasty. Where they let themselves down is in the time it takes to produce your meal.....average wait time 30 mins but this can be extended to 60 mins at least in busy... More
