The service speaks for itself. Rude, unhelpful, one word answers. Food took forever and plated up like it was just slopped on the plate. Ploughmans was a hideous mess with a meat that was supposed to be ham but looked more like something a dog...More

Service appalling almost to the point of being rude. Mushroom soup inedible and replies to questions given in one words. Obviously bad day for waitress.

Run by local girls this small wine bar is one of Blackheath's best kept secrets...until now! A reasonably priced wine list and interesting light meals and snacks are easy on the pallet as well as the pocket. Recommended.

Nestled away in Collier's Arcade this restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and just outside is a beautiful little garden of tropical plants. The coffee was good and the staff friendly and welcoming.

If you like peace and quiet while you sip your coffee and read the paper, this place is perfect. Food is made on the premises, try the sausage rolls with relish, and the fresh scones. Sublime!
