“At last, reason to eat out in Shirley!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Met my sister here for lunch, and was pleasantly surprised. Nice food, though portions on the small side. This place has a laid back atmosphere, and it's bright and airy. The counter service was dreadfully slow, but friendly. Will visit again, but will be prepared for a wait. Hopefully other Southampton venues will up their game, because based on food offer and decor, they have some catching up to do.

“Nice place for a bite to eat and chat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

I visit this place quite often with friends for lunch for a quick catch up.
The food is always very good, although a little pricey for what you get, but quite tasty and the service has always been good.
The atmosphere is very nice although can be quite crowded somethimes but then again I normally only visit during lunchtimes so only to be expected.
It's light and airy inside and at least you can have a decent chat and hear yourself speak.
Great place.

“Best in Shirley”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

I visit this place loads with my wife and friends. Super atmosphere without any of the usual Shirley crowd.
Food is mostly good, although chef is leaving.

Its a real shame that Joey, the manager left, as he was a real star.

All in all , great place.
