Popular place. Decent welcome. Good sized portions. Reasonable service (had to ask for stuff more than once) but polite. Breakfast was lukewarm on both our meals. Had to eat it quick to avoid cold. As I say, popular with locals but could do better...

Ordered some sandwiches and coffee and this was not particularly fresh. Not worth the price. I had to pay by card as It came to over £6!!!

I often visit here for lunch or a drink and chat with friends. The menu offers a good range of healthy options. Good for vegetarians. The fresh mint tea is great. We are never hurried and there is a nice relaxed atmosphere. Recommended.

Would be a pleasant cafe if it wasn't for the constant Beatles piped music so loud that it intrudes on conversation. I asked them to turn it down but still annoying. I am a huge Beatles fan but want to listen to it when I choose and not have it forced down my throat.

Went In here for lunch and had about seven or eight pounds on me so assumed I would be fine. Sandwich was six pounds or over and a can of coke was about one sixty to one eighty - I was twenty pence short of their cheeky overpriced beverage so asked for tap water. The humourless drones working their seemed... More

Went to Oak Caffe today for an impromptu lunch, to make a change from the usual places I go to. Cafe was busy with a lot of families, but wasn't too noisy and I liked the interior. My hot chocolate was nice, but half the mug consisted of foam, with only a small amount I could actually drink. We ordered... More

Worst food i have tasted it was tasteless and below any standard. I told the guy who worked there think he was the manager and he in so many words said you dont like it leave his attitude was disgusting. You could make better food at home so dont waste your money

Such a gem. Found this place near my house and have been back many times since. Great food and good portion sizes (necessary for a foodie like myself). They do light lunch options and even veggie options. The breakfasts are varied and tasty. Nice touches like halloumi with the Oak breakfast. The Oak burger is superb. Friendly staff and the... More
