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.

    Every item ordered came with errors from iced coffee coming hot, to a 50 minute wait on food, to orange and lemonade coming as just orange juice 3 times!! Felt bad for our waitress as she tried her best but the rest of the place was a joke

    Extremely lovely staff who are super helpful and willing to go out of their way to make your dinning experience even better. Food was delicious and the coffee was lovely too. Everything served extremely quickly despite it being a busy time! Special mention to the man hosting and seating guests, he had the most positive uplifting attitude and amazing customer service skills!

    Didn't really enjoy the vegan roast. Quite dry, the gravy was very thin and instead of a nutroast it was a giant piece of cauliflower which didn't have that much flavour

    Haven’t been for a Sunday roast in ages but sad to see it’s gone downhill as Evelyn’s was always one of the best for Sunday roast. I had the vegan option and it was a huge cauliflower with a few average roast spuds, a carrot and spinach. No Yorkshire. Also doesn’t allow dogs which is a pain considering everywhere else does.

    The fish and chips was bad. All 4 of us got the fish and chips, and all 4 of us didn't enjoy it. The batter on the fish was soggy and chewy, and the fish itself was quite oily. The portion of the fries was also quite small.
