The Bean has closed down as of Late August 2017. A sign in the door informing that the landlord has taken possession. Looks like 'Bain-Marie' Mexican was not fooling anyone!!! Let's see what comes next.. a hairdresser, nail salon or perhaps another Thai restaurant?

Changed management weeks ago and now it is predominantly mexican food. The food was excellent and the value outstanding. The other half (who was dragged there as Mexican is not a favourite) declared it to be one of the best Mexican meals he has had....More

Selected this from the net as we were going to be in the area. The meal was generous, fresh and so tasty. Friendly staff and the décor is worth a browse featuring some amazing posters. Would definitely go back if ever in the area again.

Good music, great decor & a really happy atmosphere!!! The owners and their staff obviously take a lot of pride in their workplace as the cafe is very clean and well kept. Large portions sizes & very reasonably priced, my food came in 10 minutes....More
