This small, (and, at the time on Sunday morning, crowded) restaurant looked warm and inviting so my wife and I went in. Other reviewers have commented on the stress level of Ffiona; I understand this comment, but it in no way diminished our experience - rather, we were impressed by the "hands-on" involvement of the owner. My wife had a... More

Had a lovely warming brunch here today. Good choice for my veggie daughter and quality sustainably sourced produce. Really tasty meal, warm friendly prompt service. I've been coming here for over 20 years and am never disappointed

We visited as a family of 10 & unfortunately were a little disappointed. The food was average - when they say home cooking it is exactly that but not restaurant quality & it wouldn't have been as bad if the prices reflected this but sadly it is very overpriced. In the plus side the place itself is nice and candlelit... More

If your looking for a soulful and scrumptious breakfast/brunch - you just cannot go wrong with Ffiona's. She runs the place herself, always making sure quality of food and service is pleasing. Favourites - the queens scrambled egg, fresh juices, champagne brunch, sausages...and Ffiona!!

Thwy always answer the phone as they were doing a favor to you or even in bad manners, they make you wait on the phone with no pardons. Once there She's stressed as well...sometimes is just not the food guys...you have to treat customers as if they were your family. won't be back again.

Next to the great food, Fiona really feels like you are having dinner at your aunt with a homey atmosphere. The kitchen also prepares food as my mom would. So, honest, very good food. Extremely friendly staff. Very reasonable prices. Our friends took us here, how else does one find this little gem? I had the lamb which was splendid.

I met up with good friends to have a pre Xmas meal here.. My friend said it's got high review.. Fiona herself seems already stressed out at 11am on Sunday, she repeated our order twice, checked how the eggs to be cooked, still when blonde short hair waitress brought us the dishes couple of the orders were mixed up😩 Very...

We booked in here for breakfast because our hotel was around the corner. It's a quirky little place with lots of character. The dining area is small so you probably do need to book at busy times. The menu had lots of choice but we mostly went for the eggs on toast! It was good but the toast needed to... More

last ate there in 2003 and very glad to see that nothing has changed - except Ffiona has gotten younger - she is a delight as owner, maitre d', and server - go early and take time to chat with her and you'll leave having a new friend - varied Britishy menu full of comfort food staples - Ffiona has...
