After a recommendation from a smart lady in a smart nearby shop we decided to book a table here for lunch. We sipped our lime and sodas (adorned with mint leaves and a slice of cucumber in a pretty Perrier glass) in the charming garden and then ate inside, as all the tables in the dappled shade (it was a hot day) had been reserved. Nice mix of furniture and interesting décor. Rather French. Fabulous service and food. Fresh, well thought out recipes, and very tasty. My Sweet Potato and Goat's Cheese Tart was just perfect. We were in a hurry so didn't stay for pudding or coffee. Another time!

We had one of the most delicious lunches that we've eaten in a long time whilst sat in the delightful garden at the back of the restaurant. The food was freshly prepared a good choice of light lunches and snacks and nothing was too much trouble. Helen and her team were busy but so attentive to all diners despite it being a busy lunchtime. The garden was just perfect to sit in with dappled shade and lots of seating. It's so lovely to find somewhere in Hereford where you can sit outside and have have the most gorgeous food! We shall be back!

Have had several lunch meetings here over recent months, and the standard of cooking and service is very good. The menu is always interesting and I have never had a bad experience. Salads are fresh and imaginative, pasta dishes are always interesting, and the puddings are too good! It is always busy at lunchtimes - which tells a reassuring story.....

Food worth waiting for as all freshly cooked. Staff friendly and helpful and all dog lovers! Very clean and tidy throughout.
Would certainly recommend and we will be going back when we next visit Hereford.

This was my second visit to this wonderful little find in the depths of Hereford. I'm admittedly fussy about coffee and having tasted some appalling brown sludge masquerading as coffee so many times in town, it was wonderful to find somewhere that provided the real thing. On top of this you have the friendly, helpful staff, the divine French pastries and the lovely location. Fab.
