Nice quick drink had here, great atmosphere, very busy. Felt a bit cramped and there were a few people wearing red trousers which put me off! Overall the place has a nice feel to it, and the staff were nice

Had a fantastic lunch at Framptons. Staff were extremely friendly and despite the café being very busy, exchanged small conversations with everyone who was there for lunch.
We ordered a steak minute sandwich and a cheese and ham omelette. Both were absolutely perfect.
It was nice to sit and relax and watch the world go by in Framptons! Will definitely be back.

Love this place although lately the service is becoming terrible. I have been coming here frequently since it opened and it seems to have changed in the way of service.

A few weeks at a lunch we received our food before our drinks and it seems they had forgotten our drinks as they only arrived after we asked them several times where they were.

On another visit to framptons for a late lunch, our food took over 45 minutes to arrive after ordering which was incredibly surprisingly considering we'd only ordered sandwiches!

Can't complain too much as the food is always great, same with the drinks/cocktails.

Service needs improving, I can imagine a lot of people becoming frustrated as the standards are definitely slipping since it first opened.

Apart from my frustrations with the service I would recommend this place, great food, lovely atmosphere, nothing like the other places in this town,

Very slow service and they could not provide the food we ordered.

They advertise breakfast served until 11.45 on a Sunday so arriving at 10.30 seemed to be in good time.We were seated in the so called conservatory, which is in fact more of a lean too.There we sat for fifteen mins until someone graced us with their presence to take our order.
The order taken we were looking forward to our 'Pan' Breakfast. Not to be the order was taken too late by the staff and the chef refused to cook it.
We were given our coffee free but sorry just not good enough

I have been into Framptons ever since it opened and standards are defiantly slipping, maybe the day staff management has changed, as in the last 2 weeks I have had 3 girlie lunches and each time service has been sloppy, 1st time they forgot our drinks and food order, second time order was wrong and today they got the order wrong and the barman boarded on rude when we went to pay "go over to the waitress at the till if you want to pay" no manners and he was wiping down not serving another, when we got to the till the waitress was sorting something on the till and we were several minutes before she even acknowledged us. Poor show for regulars who spend. We stuck to our standards and still tipped them however this evening we are planning a different venue for later in the week. Sorry guys you need to shape up if you want to keep your good name.
