We`ve been popping in for coffee-and-a-cake for several years as part our trip to Stroud Farmers Market. We were always made welcome - service, coffee and cake were always good, and the atmosphere was warm and relaxing. Not quite sure what has changed (apart from a new staircase in the middle of the restaurant) but the atmosphere has disappeared with... More

So my boyfriend treated me to a meal out for my birthday last month and he chose here to take me to! It was amazing. We arrived early (6pm - when they open) and for a while we had the whole place to ourselves. The servers were very helpful when I asked for advice about eating vegetarian. The food arrived... More

We visited Stroud for the Saturday farmers' market and found this fabulous cafe. We were ready for breakfast, and they certainly did not disappoint! Coffee was extremely good; two full english breakfasts (with gorgeous bacon and sausages) and the Potato Rosti with bacon and eggs went down a treat. Service was very friendly and we will certainly visit again!

After a long day starting at 5am, we arrived for our reservation early, prepared to wait for thirty minutes. We were shown to our table straight away and were promptly served with calm and politeness. The food was freshly cooked and all parties (4 adults) enjoyed their meal (starters and main courses all round). Unfortunately we hadn't realised we needed... More

Went to restaurant downstairs for meal, quite small but cosy and atmospheric. Had scallops linguine and Barbary Duck with roast beetroot and dauphinois potatoes all delicious. Waitresses were fine if a bit forgetful but... More

This is a lovely small place with beautiful fresh cooked food. The little courtyard at the back is woderful for a sunny lunch time (they used to have blankets so you could eat outside in colder weather too.)

What a brilliant find! This is a really great little restaurant. I spent the evening upstairs in the wine bar (which is a really gorgeous space) and had a lovely evening. Tasty tapas menus and a great wine list made all the better by the wonderful host and owner Steve.
