So hard to review, but this place is either fantastic or awful depending on why you've come here. I'll start with the positives; Fantastic- because if you want to walk your dog or have come to feed the ducks, then how wonderful to stumble on a cute cafe in an unexpected place. Somewhere that is more dog friendly than people... More

We used to live in the area and loved going to the bistro. Ordered 2 x sandwich's which came with chips, for my daughter ordered beans on toast with sausage. The food came out within 5 minutes which was impressive. So why the 1 star.... the waitress came over and put the sandwich's down, very small and bread was badly... More

I live locally and ramble round the Blackroot area a lot. My friends and I always use the Bistro and it is ideal for Breakfast, Lunch or just a snack after a walk. The food preparation area is small, so the range of food is limited but still very good and sometimes one has to wait a while. This is... More

We stopped here today while on a walk through Sutton park. My husband I and ordered a scones which were £2.95 with butter, jam and cream. We ordered one scone with just butter and the other one with just jam. We still had to pay £2.95 so I said we would have the cream with it. But they didn't have... More

Good to sit outside with a warm breakfast but... Agree with other reviewers that a quid cheaper would make this place more reasonable value. And advising customers at the till of a 45 minute wait (!!) for breakfast food would be basic good manners... Poor show. Asked for drinks to come with food appeared to perplex the girl at the...

Lovely place set in the midst of Sutton Park. Very busy for such a small cafe but ample seating outside for those with dogs. We found a table inside and ordered two breakfasts, one large and the other a medium size. Breakfasts came out quick, but very hot! Would definitely return! The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is... More

I visited today after a brisk walk in the park. It's small but a lovely place to stop have a drink or some food. I had a full English breakfast, it was delicious! All the ingredients tasted fresh and well cooked. The portions were a brilliant size and good value for money. My only two small criticisms would be that... More
