Got to Southwell a bit later than hoped but shops looked good. Popped into deli for late afternoon snak as alternative to pub. Very pleasant atmosphere and in summer nice outside space.

We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table as it was lunch time and there were some reserved tables, but we persevered and browsed the extensive menu and specials board. You order over the counter and its bought to your table. I chose the amazing steak and vegetable pie with chips and my wife had ham egg and... More

Local to this restaurant.. visit frequently for coffee, breakfasts and lunches ... Amazing selection of very good quality food, would definitely recommend !!! Even offer blankets and hot water bottle in winter so you can still sit outside if inside cafe is full :)

Popped in for coffee and cake. Plenty if tables outside were busy as they provide blankets and cushions for you. Opted to sit inside and had a homemade scone with jam and butter and a large cappuccino...which was huge!!! Nice place which clearly does well and is very popular. We'll worth a visit.

Regularly visit this deli and every time it is a great experience. The staff are welcoming and attentive. The food is lovely and their cakes, in particular,are gorgeous. The café is cosy with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Really sad that they have decided to close on Sundays.

This is a cafe that tries very hard to get things right, nothing's too much trouble, and the rewards are there to see. They also do outside catering, I was at one of their venues a few weeks ago and the attention to detail and food could not be beaten.

What a cracking little deli, only popped in to pick up a few bits and bobs, ended up staying for the afternoon. The service was spot on, attentive and knowledgeable and extremely friendly even though it was busy. The food was also superb, and the best coffee I've had in ages. A definite 5 stars from me.

This is one of my favourite places to go outside of Nottingham city centre. This cafe is absolutely adorable, with a good selection of cheeses and cakes. There are also an array of chutneys, wines and tea cosies available to purchase. The tea is made using tea leaves, which is always a nice touch. The staff are lovely, and all... More
