“Great wee find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

This was a great wee place. Right opposite Burns cottage. Small but immaculately clean and nicely decorated. The food was delicious and the service excellent. And it was air conditioned which was like heaven the day we were there.

“A hidden gem of a place.Highly recommended.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Have visited the Poets Corner a few times both for breakfast and lunch.Service and food are excellent and staff very friendly.Place is spotless and always welcoming.Only criticism is the pricing is a tiny bit on the high side for what you get but we still go back as it is too good to ignore for the sake of saving a few pence here and there.

“Small but Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Visited with a friend and we decided on the soup and sandwich deal, nice thing is the soup is a smaller portion and the toastie was warm, and very tasty.

We were lucky to get a seat as the place is small but it is well worth visiting, the owner took our order quickly and the food came fast too......hot and tasty
