Many years ago I had a love affair with Bright and it's surrounds... stunning scenery, crisp mornings, autumn overload, bracing nearby mountaintops, verdent valleys and so on, and so on... then my life took me overseas. This past weekend fate landed us back in Bright, in Spring rather than Autumn or Winter, and I once again fell head over heels...... More

We came in and were waved over to a table that was beside a too hot fire on a not very cold day. Plastic blinds added to stifling feeling. After we left we realised that there was a nice outdoors area but with the rushed feeling which was imparted didn't look around first before we sat. The waitress didn't bring... More

Wow, if I was to say I fell in love with this place before I even walked in. It was a cold day and I could really smell the smokiness from the fire place such a wonderful feeling, sitting outside with the fireplace and watching the rain (its covered) The food was delicious and so was the service.

A lovely venue with enthusiastic staff. The menu shows great promise, however many of the Spanish tapas inspired dishes are fried. The pork belly which is no doubt prepared earlier is brought to serving temperature in a frypan, the skin no longer crispy but chewy with bubbles that come from a hot frypan not an oven. The greens are also... More

Great atmosphere and very friendly. Went in for a late breakfast on a monday when it wasn't too busy. Our meals took sooo long to arrive that we almost had to leave without eating. When they did arrive they were delicious though. The only other note is that it seemed to be full of dogs. A couple of which almost... More

Cosy cafe/restaurant with open fire heaters and really good food. Went for dinner and did the share plate thing - buttermilk chicken, brocholini and croquettes - everything was delicious but the croquettes were the standout - absolutely delicious I could've easily gone for seconds but couldn't fit it in!! We were so impressed with the food and cheerful service we... More

The front outside part is always packed with people checking out Bright, people with... More

A lovely spot for a coffee after your morning walk or a very tasty lunch. There is a warm open fire or sit out the back and enjoy the river views. Lots of choices on the menu! Went two days in a row and would have happily gone again.
