A proper bistro feel about it. A small daily lunch menu and delicious brownies for those who only want coffee and cake. A laid back atmosphere which is ideal for chats or even meetings. Plenty of regulars - always a good sign.

I love the the log fire in this place. Try and claim the sofa in front of it and curl up with a book. it is very relaxed. The coffee is extremely good. The sandwiches are good value and delicious. Giant scones and biscuits available too! Staff very friendly.

Having only just discovered that the Bistro was opening on Friday evenings, we gave it a try and were very pleasantly impressed. It's a Tardis-like building with large tables and service was very pleasant. My mother ordered the duck confit, and was then told by Bob that only one duck leg was available (I've worried since about that poor hopping... More

Yesterday was the 3rd time we've eaten at the Bistro - apart from all the regular weekday coffees and cheese scones - since Bob and Karen started opening on a Friday evening. Another great meal . Really good atmosphere with the log fires and very festive at the moment. We're back again next Friday- what more can I say.

First of all, to the patronising fool from Cambridge who wrote the pointless review earlier, I'm one of the "sleepy Suffolk village" types who happens to think the panini are good. But then I'm only only comparing them against the panini I enjoyed daily during the two years I lived in the metropolis that is Rome... Other reviews aside I... More

We were on holiday in November and knew about this place as we had visited some years ago. On the day of our visit there was an open fire, very welcoming and inviting and helped to lull you into a sort of slumber! I had the squash soup which came with a huge chunk of bread washed down by a... More

We've enjoyed this place for their daytime great soups and bread, homemade teacakes and excellent coffee. We were so pleased to find that The Bistro was opening on a Friday evening, and it did not disappoint. The menu was interesting, with a varied selection of starters, mains and desserts. I'm vegetarian and had good choices. The vegetables were cooked to... More

We've just returned home after a superb evening meal. Food, service, atmosphere all perfect for us. This is always our coffee shop of choice - now it will be a favourite for evenings too. Thank you!
