Just to set the previous reviews straight We are in the area on business and have been for 12months. We have used this Cafe on a regular basis and I've never seen anyone refused a table quite the opposite. What I admiral is they cater for pensioners who are not as fortunate to cater for themselves and if they are... More

This cafe serves amazing homemade food. No fancy food. Suits the older customer. Unfortunately this is highlighted in the clientele who frequent this cafe. The "regulars" are given preferential service. They book their usual tables from week to week. They meet there just about every day. So if you call in on chance it's not often you can get a... More

Granted the sandwich I had was lovely, really good bacon however I basically got told I had half an hour as soon as I sat down. Pretty much all of the tables were reserved for regulars arriving. The service was without a smile but I noticed that the regulars got smiles. I wasn't expecting much from a little cafe but... More

Please can you let me know the date and approx time so i can establish who was serving. Unfortunately we do get busy with bookings therefore have to reserve tables and let people know when we will require a table for, but i am really sorry to hear that this wasnt done politely. Thank you. More

Ladies who lunch chose this cafe for their regular meeting. It made me smile when I walked in, cosy, oilskin table cloths and altogether gave me a feeling of last of the summer wine. Menu was plain English fare, but well presented and home made. Waitress was young and very friendly and the ladies behind the counter treat us like... More

My partner and I live locally and often pop into The Grapes for lunch. Excellent value for money and special discounts for senior citizens. Staff very friendly also and it does very good trade.

Myself, wife and two friends visited Andrews place two weeks ago on a Sunday and the meals were excellent and great value, it's nice to see value, selection and quality at realistic prices without the usual rip off where the desserts are nearly the same prices as the mains
