Love this place, had another delicious lunch. Fresh haddock and salmon fish cakes to die for. Plenty of food, attentive staff and water jug with ice and lemon (no extra cost). Worth every penny.

A small party of us had a birthday lunch here a few weeks back. Luckily we booked because it was really busy. Lovely "blue moon" beers, chilled setting with nice music and good atmosphere next to the open kitchen with the big pizza oven. We had a few sharing platters to start which were a little disappointing due to the... More

Probably the best Sunday lunch I've eaten - and I've eaten a few! If you haven't had Sunday lunch at Aboreal you haven't lived. Fantastic. Thank you

My partner and I came here for a late lunch. He had the chicken and ham pie and I opted for the arboreal burger. My burger was delish and packed with flavour. It was so big I had to use a knife and fork to eat it! The sweet potato wedges were equally as tasty, admittedly they tasted better than... More

The foods was lovely and the setting was perfect. Nice soft music. helpful staff and just an ideal setting for a special occasion. We had the entire... More

Always sold great coffee here. Interesting individual decor. Music played also good and individual, rather than the piped or just naff stuff in loads of other cafes nobody wants to hear. Staff have been friendly and 'laid back' in a nice way. Food seems good although have not had any yet. Britain needs more places like this! M C
