Came in on Thursday with my toddler for some lunch. This looked like such a lovely cafe and a lovely place to stop and have lunch. We got in and were seated and toddler in her highchair and happily sat waiting to be served.We were then asked what we would like to order and I placed our order. 5 minutes... More

My partner and I stumbled upon this by chance where we had a lovely meal. We decided to go back and the second time we went we had an even better meal! The burgers are the best I have ever tasted. The food is homecooked and well thought about. The service is also excellent and the owners are friendly and... More

My brother and I eat here regularly before we play golf on a Saturday and the service and the food is always excellent. It is also extremely good value. The breakfast is always tasty and as others have said there is always plenty of food. If you are looking for a good value hearty meal look no further.

I often come here with my mum, nan and daughter, The food is always excellent and in gigantic portions. I can never eat it all. The prices are very reasonable and do not reflect the size of the portions. It's all freshly made in the tiniest of kitchens upstairs. I couldn't make a sandwich in that small kitchen but their...

Visited this cafe a few times, I know silly me, should have known better. Over priced and service slow and not as described on the menu. Very disappointed.

Thank you for your review, even though it is bereft of any detail, I do think I remember this situation very well. You called into the cafe and on reading our specials boards you chose the salmon dish (salmon filled jacket potatoes at £6.95) and a cup of hot water. I repeated your order to you and you confirmed that... More

I'll be honest, we weren't going to the Mews Cafe, we were heading for a cafe on the other side of town, well rated by Tripadvisor. However, said establishment is shut on a Monday, a fact we discovered whilst staring rather hungrily at the darkened window and its opening times. So, we headed off back into town and to the...

Thank you for such a review. To see someone take the time to right such a positive review when everything is good is refreshing. It did come across that I bullied you a bit into having one of our burgers but I am so convinced that they are great that I am very enthusiastic about them. I trust we will... More

The service was poor at lunchtime. We sat for 10 mins before our order being taken. The young girl was more focused on the cake she was scoffing behind the counter rather than the customers coming in. Food was actually quite good but the older lady of the two had a revealing top on which I found very off putting... More
