We stopped in for lunch in the summer and my boyfriend has asked me not to write a review, but it still annoys me so here goes - The restaurant itself is quirky and really nice, books and reading glasses available for customers which is a nice touch. We were the only people in there for a late lunch. The... More

I went here with my husband as we really fancied a burger for dinner. Good ratings on here so thought we'd give it a go. Staff were friendly and smiley. And the place has a nice feel about it. The burgers were great, however the chips were not so great. We sent one set back, bit can only guess they... More

Brunch for 3: as ever, delicious, well-presented, good size portions and excellent service. Lovely quirky surroundings + free book exchange. In a town centre chock-full of coffee shops, cafes & restaurants, Cheese & Alfies stands out. The cooked breakfasts are outstanding, with every element seemingly cooked with care and thought. The Boston beans are especially yummy. As are the maple... More

First time I've visited and was very impressed. The salad was delicious, tasty and the service very good. They actually made an error with our order, but when identified they rectified it immediately. Can't ask for more than that. It's got a nice vibe in there, so definitely one to visit again as so far I've been surprisingly underwhelmed by... More

Great place to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner. Freshly prepared food as you would have at home; big pot of tea, chunky toast, butter in a dish (no nasty little packets), marmalade in a dish........... The burgers (again, home made) are wonderful and burger night is two for one, so well worth a visit or two....!!! Great value. Best place... More

Friends and regulars to the restaurant booked this lovely surprise of a place to eat. Lovely staff, served great tasting and hearty food (well it was burger night) and the desserts looked amazing. I say looked as I had an espresso bonbon which was amazing, so it means that I will have to go back just to sample them. My... More

Popped in for a coffee, they are very welcoming and friendly and do great tasting coffee even for the decaffeinated drinkers unlike the chain coffee houses that serve insipid flavoured hot milk. They also have a good selection of vegetarian meal options too, which we will look forward to giving a try next time we are in the area.

Love this place. Been for breakfast and dinner here. Great food, relaxed atmosphere. Love that they allow dogs in, this really makes me respect a place and encourages me to go there. Food is always great quality and fairly priced for what you get. Must visit!

Lovely local location. Booked day before. Confirmed via restaurant next day. Quirky and chilled out. Varied kids menu along with puzzles and colouring. Burgers awesome. I have re-found a taste for gherkins; lovely. Great food. Friendly service. Surprise of the evening-the kids picked fruit ahead of ice cream for pudding! We will be back.
