“Another Fab Evening at Characters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Have just had another excellent evening meal at Characters. Brought some friends who had not been before and they were all blown away by the Steak on the Stone. The fillet of lamb is to die for and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. You can bring your own wine or champagne which is a great idea. Well worth a visit. I will certainly be back. Been a few times now and the service and food has been brilliant on every visit. Also been at lunchtime and have been equally impressed.

“Lovely little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Came here on 2 occasions for afternoon tea. The staff are very nice and the home made food was lovely! Reasonable price and a nice cup to tea! No complaints what so ever! Would recommend to anyone.

“Excellent staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Although local to me, I hadn't been before. What a lovely welcome. We came for lunch today, Tuesday, 9th, and fell in love with this place. Lovely food and wonderful staff, particularly Zoe and another fab waitress. Had a quick word with the lovely Chloe. Excellent all round, will visit as soon as possible again, and bring my visitors too. Highly recommended , they should be very proud of themselves.
