“Good food and friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

Decided to go here at the last minute whilst in town shopping with my sister. The menu is varied and the food is fresh and made to order. We didn't wait long before our order arrived. The service was good. I would definitely visit here again. The prices are very good.

“Friendly Welcoming Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

I visited here for a business lunch with a friend, staff are very attentive and friendly, pannini was very nice and all washed down with a cold beer - nice airy surroundings, only criticism was that it was a bit noisy but it was very busy, would definitely revisit

“Great venue for a christening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

We had my sisters christening here at the beginning of the month, we weren't sure if the room was going to be big enough however when we arrived the room had been organised brilliantly and the food was very accessible. There was an outside courtyard which was very convenient as it catered for our very big party. The food was delicious and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

“Great cafe with wonderful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

Ate Sunday lunch at The Place with family and had a delicious hearty meal. The food is very reasonably priced and the staff incredibly friendly. The desserts are so delicious you may just want to skip the mains and head straight for the dessert menu. Would definitely go back.
