Expect to book 3-5 weeks ahead, only open Fri & Sats. But well worth the wait, lots cycle bookings, when there book for next time. We booked for mid Nov (first free Fri) about 2 to 3 weeks ago Food is always delicious, fresh and if you like traditional "proper" dishes, you will love these. Don't do breakfasts, lunches, take...

This was the second time that we have dined here since my last review. We visited with neighbours who had frequently heard us talk about "Memories". The evening was as usual, brilliant. The hardest part about any visit is deciding what to order, as you almost want to sit there and try the everything on the menu. The food was... More

We'd wanted to come here for a while but this bistro is incredibly popular (you need to book five or six weeks in advance). Having eaten here I can now understand why. The food is, well, simply wonderful. Home-made and delicious. I had cheese and wild mushroom pasta, beef with stout and mushrooms and finished with the best coconut tart... More

We have heard a lot about this Bistro and it is very popular and only open Friday and Saturdays. We managed to book and took my Stepmum. We were the first there and the owner was very attentive and friendly and told us her husband did all the cooking and all food ect was locally sourced. It is a small,... More

The food is top notch,best I have ever eaten.The owners are lovely and the service excellent.I cant fault it.My only little quibble is I personally would like a more varied style of music and a bit louder to create more of an atmosphere.Other than that I would highly recommend you try it!
