“Excellent quality at very reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Visited the bistro a few times now and have never been disappointed. Everything is so reasonably priced I would even go as far to say too cheap! Recently had open sandwich and soup which only costs £5.50 if I remember correctly - and it's not just a basic sandwich comes on lovely rustic bread with fresh side salad with a generous bowl of soup (broccoli & Stilton that day which was delicious). Staff are all lovely and nothing is too much bother for them. Really is worth a visit but perhaps book as even days where the town is like a ghost town they're turning people away as it is so busy. Well done on a this lovely wee bistro.

“EXCELLENT MEAL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went to the bistro for breakfast as staying in the only hotel in the town and that was awful.
Staff were tiptop, polite and friendly, the food was quick to arrive and delicious. The food is very reasonably priced as well. Clearly a popular place with the locals too.
10 out of 10
Will definately go there again.
