Out for a light evening meal

Pleasant little place, good ambience, friendly staff, improved menu, great choice of bottled European beers & just over the road from the cinema. Plus you can just go in for a coffee & cake.

We just called for a coffee whist strolling around the shops. I also had a sneaky apricot scone, delicious! Beautiful coffee made just to my liking as I don't like strong coffee. Beautiful little friendly coffee shop.

We have walked past many times and never ever called in but today was the day after a long walk over the parks. We only had hot chocolate drinks but all was good. We had the choice of English or Italian. The Italian being stronger we chose the English hot chocolate. Reasonable price and service was good.

We popped in for a quick hot chocolate and were offered, English or Italian options. The lady serving was very friendly and welcoming.

We go to the Ritz cinema quite often, and find this an excellent place for a meal either before or after, as it's just opposite. The food is simple but tasty, with lots of vegetarian options which we like. The staff are friendly, and now welcome us as old friends. Prices are very reasonable. I've read a few recent bad...

Came here recently for a light lunch with a friend and really enjoyed it, staff were friendly and accommodating, so on this we decided to try an evening meal.. The gambas which we shared as starter was ok for what it is was but not what we expected.. We both had a chicken and bacon pasta bake which was very... More

Went for dinner after a film, lured by the Tripadvisor 2014 sticker in the window. Staff very nice and having Belgian beers a nice change but the food was very disappointing. Had a burger with a bit of grated cheese dropped on the side of the plate. The bun was hard and dried out, with the whole meal uninspiring and... More

We visited this restaurant for the second time yesterday and will certainly not be returning or recommending it! The first occasion was a lunchtime bank holiday. We had planned on going somewhere else which was closed that day so were delighted to find Fresh Ground was open. However the staff were extremely unhelpful and miserable it seemed as it was...

Thank you for your review, and acknowledging the gluten free items on our menu. You state that our menu was not brilliant, in which case it seems strange that you chose to return. Our food is home cooked and our daily specials change - well, as you would expect - daily. I have spoken to the staff on duty when... More

Nice venue, staff ok nice atmosphere but not impressed by the food. I ordered salmon with pesto, new pots and green beans for £6.30. It came out as it said but was quite dire and terrible value for money. Flat slightly rubbery salmon, slightly over green beans and ok potatoes. No taste from the pesto I think it had been... More

Four of us were here for the Twilight Menu on a slowish night - service was good, choice of food somewhat limited. They don't seem to do a very full list of main courses. However, what we did have was very nice and well presented - a good salad, soups, ciabatta, etc. An extensive list of Belgian beers too. I... More
