We had a lovely evening, it's charming inside and the menu was great. Food was tasty, generous portions and great choice. I absolutely recommend plus very good value - do make a reservation though.

The best coffee for miles around with an excellent variety of light meals and snacks. Dinners on a Friday evening are a must for those who like good locally sourced food well cooked.

Visit during the day and have a leisurely coffee and yummy cake or a lovely lunch - from well filled sandwiches to fabulous tapas plates, salads or soups. Friday night dinner is even better with fresh, local ingredients used in interesting and imaginative ways. There is also now a Pizza oven and the results from this are proving to be... More

I met a friend here for a coffee and catch up. The Bistro has a lovely welcoming feel and the staff are really friendly and attentive. The dark hot choc is scrummy! We sat on the sofa by the fire (it was not lit) it was really comfortable. I loved the tranquillity of the place it was really peaceful and... More

Been to the Bistro a couple of times now for their Friday evening meal. Each time the food has been first class. It's obvious everything has been made from both fresh and quality ingredients. The menu is not huge like some restaurants, but there is something for everyone with little extra touches, like a home made roll as soon as... More

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.
