Love the menu. Can highly reccomomend looking through the specials as they is almost always something new and tasty to try. Can get very busy on the weekends (a good sign) but well worth the wait for a table if you have the time.

We accidentally stumbled across this place after going to the tourist office nearby, and what a gem It turned out to be. Beautiful interior with leather sofas and wooden tables and tasteful decor, and of course the great bit - the food! I had aubergine and peanut curry which was so tasty and also such a generous portion. My wife... More

Their coffee is amazing and they have an extensive selection of tea. We both had the feta baklava... omg it was so tasty and amazing. The sour cream was thick and creamy and a... More

While visiting the area we happened across Food for thought, it was a very busy lunch time but the staff welcomed us and we were lucky to be found a table within a few minutes. We tried three meals off the specials board including scotch egg and posh mushrooms on toast, all very tasty, quick (despite how busy it was)... More

Always nice to have variety to choose from for lunch, and Food For Thought definitely delivers that. Despite being very busy we were served quickly and efficiently. There were gluten free options for me, and dairy free for my son. The food was fresh and tasty and the staff friendly and helpful.
