A very positive experience with knowledgeable service, good food and a pleasant environment. Initially rather busy for the number of staff, it took a while for food to be served but it was worth the wait. Gluten free range was quite extensive and well explained....There was obvious emphasis on keeping the place clean, disinfected and tidy - well done for that. Good value for money too.More

We both had salads which were very special and quite delicious. We were served quickly. Everything was perfect. I could go on but it was all lovely in an interesting place and I was delighted to hear the cafe is a social enterprise. Visit the...Bluebell Cafe if you want to know how to get it right. Will go again soon and have a walk around the park. Have Googled and looks interesting too.More

Had afternoon tea and the sandwiches and cakes were all superb! We were kindly given a doggy bag to take home the items we were too full to eat at the time. A couple of suggestions - could do with more staff on, as they...were all rushed off their feet. Also, some sound absorbent material ( eg ceiling tiles or drapes) would benefit the area as it was very noisy and echoey, making it difficult to converse, because of the hard floors and the large number of people in there. Nevertheless, will still go back again.More

Where to start we arrived here booked table and it turned out we were sitting inside but we wanted to go outside as lovely weather this wasn’t an issue at all. The staff couldn’t do enough for us our table was particularly awkward with menu...choices wanting no chilli sauce with their smashed avocado etc but nothing was too much trouble and the food was amazing and great value for money I will definitely be coming again to this wonderful cafe.More

Fabulous food and service - such a hidden gem. The salmon salad was wonderful. Easy to park and a lovely covered outdoor area which was so useful for a larger group (in the rain!) Thanks for a great lunch

I am just a reviewer however I looked it up online (which you could have done) and they are open 10 - 3 p.m. on Saturday. It's best to book as it's very popular.

Outside seating - so assume OK for dogs there.
