This cafe bar is handy for those of us going to the Ritz Cinema opposite and provides an early supper as well as lunches. I have eaten both at lunch time and also in the early evening. The food is ok, and reasonably priced but given the quality of some of the other local independent cafes I would not necessarily... More

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 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
