Lovely place (the garden must be great when the summer comes) and the meals we had were not the most memorable but there was plenty of it. Service was friendly. One quibble - four of us were crammed onto a table that elsewhere in the restaurant was laid for and seating two. A bit too intimate, especially when you have... More

In the local area that offers mostly overpriced pub grub and Indian cuisine it is great to have somewhere like Dexters that offers a different dining experience. As a family of four we had a selection of tapas to share, and different main course each. Service was very good. All the food was fresh and tasty and a good eclectic... More

Lots of choice, good food, friendly people and a lovely environment. Not much more to say except that I also recommend the cocktails.

Just called in on for coffee on our travels. Lovely coffee served by a friendly waitress. Nice, clean surroundings and noticed that a mum and baby were well looked after (plenty of room for a pushchair). Large courtyard with tables and chairs for when summer arrives! Menus looked good - shame we don't live closer.

Visited Dexters last night with a group of friends from fit 4 life (Mira's fitness). We had an amazing meal, very tasty and the service was excellent. And for the area the prices where very reasonable for the quality of the food (fresh and local produce) we received, it's tasted great. I thought the decor was very tasteful for the... More

Sandwiches were great, but the service was very slow. Nice just for a light bite and a coffee. Lovely old building, just a shame the decor was a little too 'greasy spoon' like.

We knew this place as a great alfresco dining spot under its previous identity as "Archie's". In recent years, however it's been no more than a coffee stop for us during our frequent visits to this delightful market town. Until today, when the opportunity arose for a lunch at Dexter's, and I wish we had taken the plunge earlier. The... More

Never let down when you visit Dexters, always something different on the menu especially the Specials Board. I plumped for the Southern Fried Chicken in a basket, which came with sweet potatoe french fries, corn on the cob and coleslaw. I have to say this was the best Southern Fried Chicken I have ever had, will be very hard to... More
