“Nice food let down by small touches (such as staff and rubbish quality jam!)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

The food here is very good but the place is let down by a lack of attention to detail. The young man in the bakery section downstairs was very brusque and not at all friendly, and the tea came as a mug of hot water with a teabag next to it. The jam for the scone was quite clearly cheap mass produced rubbish, which was a shame because there are some lovely local jams they could have had. The cafe area is nice and the atmosphere is good, but this would have been a much nicer experience if the staff had been a bit friendlier and if there was greater care taken to improve customer care. Suggest using proper tea pots and decent jam would be a good place to start!

“Great Pizzas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Thursday and Friday they have pizzas and they are huge, sometimes don't even fit in the box! Delicious and very reasonably priced, always going back every week. Also a lovely cafe upstairs with homemade cakes and bread etc. The apple juice is top notch too!

“I would move to Sherbs just to be able to visit more often!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Love this place. It's cute and quirky. Have visited on pizza night, breakfast and lunch all of which were superb. The pizza is amazing and at a good price. Recently visited for breakfast & lunch which was very good. The side salad with my lunch was a welcome addition to my savoury muffin. It's a very friendly atmosphere. Have also taken away cakes & bread, we can't fault anything, it's all so yummy!
