Reay liked this place when it was at the old place. Very cosy and personal. But now it is even better. Bigger with more room and the food and service is great. Would recommend

This little cafe that was tucked away down an alleyway has moved!! And what a transportation it has undertaken!! They have redecorated their new premises and where they are it's much lighter in the cafe. It has a cozy family feel and much brighter than the old place. Going by the constant stream of ppl to and from the kitchen... More

Visited the lunch box with a friend and was surprised at the good meal we had there as it is a tiny little place tucked away down a side alley. The place was crowded when we attended by lots of elderly having lunch which was extremely good value. Staff very attentive but not intrusive

Plan, well cooked food, popular with older customers, so don't go if you want a trendy atmosphere. Do go if you want a pleasant meal at a good price in quaint (slightly tacky) surroundings.

Found this by accident whilst walking around Trowbridge and was pleased I did. Lovely, homely atmosphere and a very large selection of dishes considering its size. A very generous pot of tea for one and a very tasty ham sandwich with some trimmings filled a hole nicely and was reasonably priced. Well worth a visit and far better than some... More

This little restaurant is tucked away in a small alley, however it is well worth looking for. I have been here several times and never been disappointed the food is always fresh, prepared on the premises and service is cheerful. The place has a quaint feel about it and is frequented by people who understand the concept of value for... More
