The Elm was suggested by our landlord at harrington's Motor Inn down the street. She did us great favour. We were lucky to get the last table on short notice on a Friday evening. The garden courtyard at the front of the cafe is delightful and was full when we left. We ate inside where it was warmer and a bit noisy. The food was excellent and the service efficient. We brought our own wine so didn't sample the wine list. Very good value.

Went for brunch and it was as delicious as the last time we visited over a year ago. The eggs benedict were cooked to perfection, the pancakes were yummy and the kedgeree was a delight. Coffee was well made and quite delicious! Will definately visit again.

This is undoubtedly one of the best eateries in town with a nice out door seating area. We come here almost every weekend for brunch with our girls and they are happy to provide half portions and special request for the girls. Dinner also great. Decor not exactly fine dining, but the food quality makes up for it and laid back atmosphere adds its own special touch. Also very low staff turn over whcih makes for fantastic service.

I checked ahead and staff were very helpful in providing a menu option according to my dietary requirements - vegan and low fat. More than the expected group turned up but it was 'no problem' to staff. The meals took a while to come but were great.
