“Vegetarian Weekend”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

As lifelong vegetarians the menu options were a pleasant change from the limited choices normally on offer. Food was well presented and delicious. Reasonably priced wine. Friendly service.

“Excellent”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

We had read the reviews and decided Knapps sounded somewhere we'd like to try. We were disappointed to find it closed on the Wednesday evening and hadn't realised it wasn't open every evening. However, we walked past on the Friday and discovered it was open; we were welcomed and the service was very attentive. The food was delicious and was really good value for money. We liked the atmosphere and were pleasantly surprised when we got the bill. The little extras too, such as the delicious homemade garlic mayonnaise that accompanied the bread and the truffles presented with the coffee (a generous cafetiere) all made for a delightful meal. We'd recommend "Knapps Bistro" but would point out that you need to come with cash or cheque as credit cards are at present not accepted. We wish Knapps every success...it is deserved!

“Good value for money”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

I had heard a lot of good reports about Knapps, but wondered what a cafe turned into a bistro at nights would turn out like.A warm welcome at the door with water and bread soon arriving was a good start.We went for the £39 two course meal for two that included a bottle of wine of your choice from a good wine list and coffee.Our starters were all good,and the main meals apart from the sea food lasagne( which was very tasty) served on a cold plate that cooled the meal.We all had the blueberry and rasberry pancakes for sweet and voted it the best sweet for a long time.All in all a good value night out, with the place full it gave it a good atmosphere .I will certainly visit again,and i wish them well in this tough economic climate

“Terrific value for money”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

My partner and I went along to Knapp's expecting good things (going by the positive reviews) and we weren't disappointed. Although the menu is not huge in this instance I would call that a plus as it is obvious that the chef can concentrate on producing a few excellent dishes. The food was well up to scratch and for the price you are paying, you are laughing. To illustrate: we paid 40 pounds for two mains (stuffed chicken breast with rosti potato), two desserts (sweet potato pie & ice cream and Eton mess), a bottle of wine and tea/coffee. They even threw in some homemade truffles with the tea and coffee.

The staff (owners? Not sure, should've asked!) were very friendly and welcoming, which helped to detract from the unfortunate lack of atmosphere, which I would put down to how quiet the place is. This can hardly be blamed on the restaurant.

If word of mouth spreads (and perhaps with the help of some advertising) then Knapp's will fully deserve the success it gets, it is well worth a visit - and tell your friends! We will definitely be going back.
