Small resturant which is ideal for a couple or two, nice menu with a good meal deal for lunch. Can get quite busy at lunch time so get there early. Handy menu outside if your just browsing.

We dined on the 2 courses for £11.95 menu. Fantastic value. Delicious and freshly cooked food. Great selection. Decent sized portions. Excellent value. Nice selection of reasonably priced wines. Friendly and efficient staff. A favourite of ours and would highly recommend Saffy's. Best to book a table as it is busy.

There was a good range of interesting options available to the extent that there were about three starters and mains that I could have happily ordered. We were certainly impressed by the quality of everything that we ordered both in... More

I visited Saffy's Cafe tonight with my husband. The food was amazing and the service was rapid. Strange as it might sound the rest rooms were also extremely clean and lovely looking. Well worth visiting!!

Ordered fish and chips and it was cooked to perfection, absolutely gorgeous. My partner ordered rare venison and he says it was cooked perfectly and is the best he's had. I also ordered the sticky toffee sundae and again I was impressed and I am a big fan of dessert. Staff very friendly, chef is very talented and I would... More
