“Quirky, can be hit and miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

The Elephant Boy is quirky, with it's book-lined interior and library like feel, but in a good way. As long as you avoid the overly rushed times, the service is ok to average, but it is the cakes and coffees that you go for. Fine for a weekend treat where you don't mind the occassional slow service.

“Not the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

On a cold Saturday afternoon we stopped here to enjoy some hot chocolate in a wonderful looking cafe. Very cosy and can be a bit of a squeeze as it gets very busy. We waited for ages for four hot chocolates to arrive at our table which were luke warm at that. No one came near us so that we could ask for hot ones and the fact that it took 20minutes for our drinks to arrive we just didn't have time to wait for another 20minutes. Over priced for what really is just any other cafe/coffee shop.

Excellent chicken pie. Eclectic decor. Cosy atmosphere with shelves of old books and elephant ornaments.
