The ambience is interesting. The service was friendly but delivery of food slow. The food was lovely and not over priced when you conider how much there was. However, like so many restaurants, cafes these days the size of the portions as scarily and unnecessarily lodge so could be cheaper and more appreciated. The tea was good. The child's meal... More

Really love it when you find a restaurant who put so many little touches around the place to make it feel different then all the chain restaurants out there. We were visiting the area on a Wednesday & happily noticed the 241 burger deal! The burgers were fab & the desserts were amazing! Had our 2 year old with us... More

Visited here late August with family and 2 year old son. Dined downstairs and have to say the amount of toys and books available for kids is wonderful, really helps to keep a small child occupied during lunch. Food and service were great and atmosphere is nice and relaxed. Will definitely be back.

Cancelled our eve table at another restaurant after dining here at the lunchtime. Food delicious, especially surf and turf starter and fish fingers sandwich!! Service excellent, despite the demands of a large party upstairs. Will definitely return-maybe for breakfast tomorrow!!

Located on the cobbled backstreets of historic Christchurch, in the shadow of the 900 year old Priory, this one-off and award-winning café bistro has a relaxed, quirky foody-vibe that makes a nice change to the chain coffee shops and restaurants that populate the typical British high street (not that there is anything wrong with chains, particularly in Christchurch which are...
