Another good one

It just amazes me why all cafes/ restaurants aren't like this, this franchise has it exactly right, I've said this before but here we go again, the picture you see on your menu is exactly what you get on your plate, brilliant finally no more let downs on what you expect. Will definitely be back... read more

I'm sorry but it's a typical builders 'caff'. You can get the usual fry up, breakfasts, teas coffee's etc here. You can sit out in a nice day and watch the world go by as it's slightly cleaner outside than indoors. That's about all I have to say I'm afraid

Although you may be put off going here as there always seems to be a Mötley Crüe sat outside of it smoking, it really is a great cafe. The staff are all really friendly and the service is quick. The food is basic but you can't fault it at all, plus it's cheap! Recommend the milkshakes, huge and really tasty

As suggested by a reviewer , I tried the Bacon sandwich ( Mine was toasted as per instructions!) and it was very good after adding some strong English moutarde! Hit the spot!!

Visited Poppsins on a cold November morning when I had a hour to lose. The menu and prices were clearly displayed in the window and they looked very inviting. Plenty of clean tables and seats available at 10:00 on a Saturday. My order was taken within 3 minutes ( after I had finished reading the menu) and a slight variation... More

A typical Poppins - a friendly and cheerful welcome, smartly uniformed staff, good value food from an extensive menu, fast service, clean (if a little spartan) environment. Called in for a late lunch at the end of July and it was exactly what we expected - no less, no more. Perfect for what it is! Looking forward to next time... More
