Limited menu, nice to see no kids menu so quite a relaxed atmosphere. Disappointed with the 'New York Fries' basically frozen chips with a bit of seasoning, any restaurant should at least attempt to make their own. A lunch menu wouldn't go amis with smaller portions at a reduced cost, you don't always feel like a full meal at lunchtime.... More

Went for dinner with a friend. Found a seat reasonably easy, even though it was packed. I ordered a special and it was tasty. It was reasonably priced. If you looking for a place to chill, then come here.

I've been here lots of times over the years. More recently for afternoon or Friday drinks after work. While the venue is great , food is good, the same can't be said for their bar staff. Had to wait for way to long at a deserted bar last two visits while staff milled around . No smile or welcoming faces... More

Stopped here on the way home from a sporting event. I'd heard about it from ex locals, and was lucky enough to go there myself. What a fantastic place! Smartly dressed waitresses, cosy seating and even a few booths for a little more privacy. Drinks were reasonably priced, as was the food. Everything we ordered was delicious. I can't wait... More

I really feel the 1920's vibe that Tilley's gives.The inside and outside are really pretty. The staff are usually great. The location is charming. But I can't help being disappointed by the food, especially when I see the prices attached to it. Great place for afternoon tea, coffees or iced drinks but it's unlikely I'll ever go there for a...

Came here on a sunday morning. Got there at about 9, so beat the rush. Friendly staff and amazing food. Got the big breakfast and it was big. Coffee...just as good. Yes it may be a bit old and need a refurb. But if you can look past that, its a great place to go and is very reasonable in... More

We went here for a quick lunch and the first thing I noticed is how tatty and torn the seating upholstery had become. Whilst the service was good, the food acceptable and the staff were friendly, it couldn't make up for the dreary interior together with the number of flies. We sat next to the window and counted 10. In... More

The atmosphere was relaxed, staff, welcoming and attentive. There were 10 of us booked at the long table by the window. People took a while to decide what to order, some going ahead of others. The people taking the order noticed this and made sure that the orders went under the same number, although each paid separately (other customers were... More

It's been a while since I've visited Tilley's even though I live 2 blocks aways. Something about its size and smoothness that kind of deters me I guess. Anyway within 24 hours I visited this place two times. Receiving an unexpected guest I was at a loss to know what to do for dinner for him, and I didn't feel... More

Love this cafe, which used to serve pub food and brews, and now does a busier trade in morning coffees. And the coffees are good.
