“Disappointing”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Althought the restaurant was far from busy the service was a little slow. The food was of average quality. I had the cajun chicken which thought was quite bland. The house wines were not very inspiring and we switched to others which were only slightly more in price.

We frequented this establishment to say goodbye to a work colleague, friendly staff, great food, reasonably priced and great location.
Suffice to say we will be back and would recommend to all.

“Just ok”
Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

I fancied going out for a cooked breakfast, so rang Playwrights to see if they did Gluten Free breakfasts, they did. Greeted by pleasant staff, nice location, a cafe more than a bistro, decor a bit tired.
Separate gluten free menu, good. All dining establishments should have this. Very disappointed there was no gf sausage on the breakfast-its a major part of the meal. Liked the fact i had a pot of tea, but I'd finished it by the time my breakfast arrived. Crockery tired too. A mixed experience, i wouldn't rush back.
