I ate here with friends for Sunday brunch. The menu looked great so thought we would give it a try. The service was ok. We asked for water about 3-4 times and about 20 mins later were presented with a bottle and no glasses. We...More

I frequently go along to The Black Dog for a mid morning drink with a friend and we enjoy consistently good coffee and delicious cakes (now and again!). The atmosphere is relaxed and laid back and we both enthusiastically recommend it to others.

Coffee is fantastic. Had many breakfasts and quite a few lunches. Always good, my only comment is the service can be a bit slow at times but if you are there with no time pressure then no problem.

We are visiting the Black Dog very frequently. Why? It's all you could ever want from a local cafe!!! Amazing coffee, relaxed atmosphere, simple ingredients used to create amazing dishes and friendly staff . Great place for just a coffee, breakfast or brunch.
