£25 and under
Global, International
Easy-going Neighbourhood Cafe Bar with middle eastern/ asian inspired menu. Known for being a go-to destination brunch and dinner spot amongst locals and travellers. Evelyn’s is humble, unfussy food made with love in a relaxed environment. Cooking over charcoal adds to the menu's identity and gives the food personality and attitude.

DJs play Fridays and Saturdays in The Daisy, a Parisian inspired cocktail den in the basement. Expect late night bougie escapism with plush, loft apartment style houseparty vibes. Walk-ins welcome but bookings are highly recommended.

We dined at Evelyn’s for brunch & the Sunday roast (on separate days) and we thoroughly enjoyed both. Our favourite was the Sunday roast. The ambience & service at the restaurant was great.
The only downside was that tables are very close together but that is just a small issue.

What I like most about Evelyn's is that you get the 'treat' of a restaurant experience but there are lots of healthy options on the menu! At last, dishes that include a decent amount of vegetables. And if you feel like being decadent, the cocktails are lovely.

Sunday lunch was awesome. Staff were really friendly and the ambience was laid back (the music was a tad too loud for me though). I've been before and I will return.

We really enjoyed our brunch, the food was delicious and fresh and different with grapefruit in the sauce on the avocado toast with poached eggs on.
Was served promptly and our waiter was also outstanding, very knowledgeable and friendly. Altogether an amazing brunch and can’t wait to return to sample the Sunday roast that looked fantastic too! Thank you to everyone there.

Well… firstly Daisy’s awesome bar, cocktails were super disco awesome, felt like an 80’s rockstar sat in there. Service was exceptional.
Evelyn’s - even better food was incredible and the Margaritas were amazing especially 1 after another… keep that shiz coming man….
An exceptional place both the bar and restaurant… highly recommended but I’m not telling anyone because I want it to be little secret place!!! See you very soon

The food is very flavoursome and tasty. The waiter was absolutely brilliant. I didn’t get his name but he had a red T-shirt on and seemed of Far Eastern origin. He was superb in helping us decide what to choose for the kids as their is no kids menu. Would be 5 star if they had kids menu. Also love the fact that it is halal.

Lovely atmosphere, attentive staff, food was very tasty but the lamb steak and rib eye steaks were a bit fatty / difficult to cut through, even with a steak knife! The chicken starters were very tasty!

Good, friendly service. Had the burger and tofu laksa - tasty stuff for sure but, being picky, probably too much lime. Will be back.

Food was really good! But both coffees were really cold. Once we entered 2 of the staff didn’t even acknowledge us.
Once she found our booking she pointed ‘there’s your seats’ we sat there for a while before she can over and said to us to scan the qr code. It took us a while to get their attention a few times. Overall Great food which I loved but the front of house let it down, wouldn’t go again for that reason.

Evelyn's is always a guarantee. The coffee was fab, the food great, service was amazing... Only upset was the lack of desserts. We were told the crumble was finished, but then a new tray arrived but it was too late for us to order it :(
