Boonnak Thai Restaurant

A fabulous, charming little find, a real hidden gem. Friendly traditional welcome from the staff and great service. Pleasant atmosphere and spotlessly clean, bright and spacious. Even the cleanliness of restrooms deserves a mention. The truly authentic food is delicious, fresh, beautifully presented and very good value.The early bird menu is particularly good value. There is a wide range of fish and seafood dishes for those that don’t eat meat and a good choice of tasty, vegetarian and vegan dishes.

West Coast Rock Cafe

Amazing atmosphere, amazing music, amazing food, amazing drinks. Superb food, right on time, hot and at a great price. Great with kids, well looked after with a play area for them. Attentive, friendly, helpful and polite staff. A lovely cafe that is clean and tidy. Although very heavily meat orientated there is a choice of vegetarian options.McHalls Bistro

McHalls Bistro

Friendly, down to earth, service and atmosphere, and high-quality cuisine worthy of a fine dining restaurant. The food is beautifully and expertly prepared, cooked and presented and is extremely tasty.  The menu choices are plentiful and inviting, a perfect selection in all three courses. There is also a good selection of beers, wines and spirits all reasonably priced. The Bistro itself has a lovely ambience, cosy with a lovely, personal, homely feel. It is an amazing place, spotlessly clean and tidy. Highly recommended.


Amazing, incredible food, so fresh and delicious, proper Italian food. The front of house staff are delightful, warm and friendly yet professional and courteous, they really look after you. A great place, a real diamond find, it is only small, seating 15-20 people, but the staff are really accommodating and flexible when fitting in party bookings.

A great little find. Lovely, fantastic customer service, friendly and attentive making you feel really welcome. If you’re looking for something different this Latvian Russian fusion menu will not disappoint, vegetarian-friendly, vegan and gluten-free options are also available.

Open every day for breakfast and lunch, open evenings Thursdays to Sundays. A lovely, friendly little Bistro, warm and welcoming, staff very friendly and attentive. Gorgeous food.
