Food was amazing, but was let down by the service. Staff themselves were friendly & very helpful, but it’s like we were forgotten about.

We had cocktails to start, wine, food and another round of drinks, we were the last ones in the bar and the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating right up to the minute we left. Food was brilliant, atmosphere was great and the girl that was serving us was so attentive!

Great spot! We had an amazing brunch experience at Evelyn's Café. Staff were all extremely friendly and attentive. The café was very busy but it still had a great atmosphere and was not too noisy.

The 4 of us all loved our meals and they serve great coffee.

Love it! Will be back for sure.

Our meal was lovely - the best pancakes I’ve ever had! Our server was lovely and very considerate, and the atmosphere was perfect. An ideal spot for brunch and casual lunch, lovely cocktails and while it was busy that wasn’t a bad thing.

Great service, was like being served by a friend! Kitchen weren’t very flexible with our food requests (nothing fussy we just wanted half a portion of pancakes,ha). Food was boss, healthier than your average brunch if you choose wisely too.

Perfect brunch meeting friends. Food was great and we were really looked after and given a table in the cocktail bar downstairs after we had finished our brunch. Love all the plants and decor

Everything was great, food and drinks were good and staff were really friendly. But they don’t have a paper track and trace system - told us they weren’t allowed by law but I work in a pub which operates one perfectly legally. Only a little thing but causes problems for visitors from elsewhere in the UK and those who don’t have smartphones.

Good food but when we arrived they had ran out of many items on the menu and informed us we were the last sitting of the day - this was in the early afternoon.

Food was delicious and luckily we still liked the options that were still available.
