I called in here for a early lunch, late breakfast with a friend. She ordered a full breakfast, and I ordered a cheeseburger with chips. My friend loved her full breakfast, and mine was really good. The only complaint I have is how small the cafe is, I didn't enjoy it at all as I felt like I was... read more

Once again we had our annual Christmas meal at Hartley's, on 18th December and as always, it lived up to and beyond expectations.The ladies were perfect, as always, making us really welcome and feeding us royally. I cannot recommend Hartley's highly enough!

This is definitely my favourite café, it is great. The food is amazing, the service is amazing and I really, really enjoyed the décor and the music, they were interesting and enjoyable. I liked the cheesecake. I also recommend the cheeseburger.

First visited Hartley's a few weeks ago. The tea is decent and the cafe itself seemed adequate but the owner is unfriendly. She seemed so concerned with doing things her way that it has a negative effect on the atmosphere. I approached the counter, not realising that it was a waitress service and I was marched over to a table.I... More

50's and 60's backdrop of music, records on the walls, sofas to relax on, excellent home cooked food.

I used this café for a lunch while I was on day release at college. It advertised an all day breakfast. When I entered I was advised it was all cooked fresh. I was served so quickly it was obviously not cooked fresh. The bacon, sausage & black pudding was warmed up. The tomato was not cooked it was just... More

Me and my partner love this little cafe, the two ladies who own it are always friendly, they usually recognise us and ask how we are :) food is a bit pricey but they give you a good plate full! I love the big pot of tea you get :) lovely homely little place, worth a visit x

We have visited Hartley's for several years now. Two lovely ladies and their staff, who always make us more than welcome. Whether it be for a Saturday morning breakfast, or our annual treat of an evening Christmas Dinner (slacken your belt for this one). On booking this 3 course meal upon request I was provided with a very substantial cheese... More
