At Arlo’s we have a simple and straightforward goal – to source the very best ingredients and to serve them quickly and simply. We serve the finest, highest welfare and grass-fed pure native breed British beef and we're also hugely proud of our vegetarian and vegan dishes and focus continually on fresh and interesting dishes from light and leafy salads to hearty roast veg, brunches and, but of course, our famous burgers. All recipes are cooked on site, fresh & homemade, every day. We cook to our own recipes with fresh ingredients and yes, we do cut every single chip by hand every day – and we always will…

This place has some of the best coffee I've tried. I love the fact they serve oat milk as well! The veggie brunch had perfectly gooey eggs and crispy halloumi. What's not to love?
