Each time I have been to Bethany's its always been good food and nice coffee. The staff have been helpful and friendly, I like the atmosphere as well. If you want somewhere a little more private, you can go upstairs. On a hot sunny day, sitting outside with the square to look out on is delightful. I was particularly impressed... More

We had a lovely time here. If you can, book a table upstairs by the window. Has some nice views overlooking 'The Square'. As for the food delicious! We both had Scallops to start and my wife moved onto the Chicken Supreme main while I had the Beef Fillet (medium-rare), superb. No need for side dishes as we needed to... More
