Visited here in November. Lovely interior. Very cosy. We chose the beef wellington which was delicious. For dessert we had the trifle which wasn't traditional as we had expected but very nice all the same.

We went for a breakfast in the late morning and it was perfect, and there was a very good offering of cakes to. The only moan is the area it is situated is on a busy road, but this can't be helped.

We had Saturday lunch at this cute little bistro. We knew to book ahead and we were glad we did as we wouldn't have gotten in without a reservation. We all enjoyed our meals and they were moderately priced. The service was excellent and we enjoyed our stay. We had a toddler and a baby in tow and it was... More

Just popped in for a coffee which tasted awful and was cold and when I went to pay I was told to 'wait' by the proprietor (who didn't even give me eye contact), as he disappeared into the kitchen. I was given the distinct impression that because my wife and I were not having a full English we were not... More

Charlie's came recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was delicious, we were lucky that beef wellington was on the menu and seemed to be the most popular order on the night we were there. It is only a small restaurant which gives an intimate atmosphere. We will definitely be returning.

We were greeted by a member of staff with a warm smile who invited us to a seat. It is really spotless and the cakes are displayed in a glass cabinet for all to see. Excellent coffee and a lovely pot of tea. Will visit again when visiting Chatsworth

Second visit. Booked a table this time as we didn't want to risk it. Had been walking in the morning and wanted a light lunch : Charlie's sandwiches hit the spot exactly-great portions and interesting flavours and presentation. Good value for a " smart" place ( as opposed to a cafe) and lovely friendly staff with prompt service and a... More

Out for the day cycling, we were looking for somewhere for lunch and stumbled across this place. Food and service was excellent. Very tasty, well presented, and good portions. Well worth calling into for lunch.
