This is an attractive venue, I have often met friends for tea or coffee during the day but this is the first time I have had dinner. It was a very pleasant experience, the food was good and the jazz pianist was excellent . Hardly worth mentioning but the waitress made a couple of mistakes as her English was not too good. That can only improve. I do recommend this restaurant.
I'm so pleased to find a good local restaurant. The service was friendly if a little hap hazard and the food was good, although not outstanding but it is the atmosphere that makes this a little gem. The restaurant consists of a small number of tables nestled inside what is in essence an interior design store. The furnishings are simple and the room gently lit creating a pleasant atmosphere that was further enhanced by a musician playing easy listening music. Although the tables are close together and were fully occupied, we were not aware of others around us. An excellent place for an intimate dinner or cosy chat with a few friends.
The best breakfast ever! I will definitely be back
The food is superb in this place. The coffee is gorgeous. It's a favourite spot for lunch and brunch. Dinner food is amazing unfortunately it is ruined by the live music. The singing id too loud so you can't hear your dinner party. Also the clapping after each song doesn't help to have an enjoyable dinner. In my view it would be a perfect spot for dinner without the live entertainment.
We enjoy family brunch on the weekends (sons are four and six) and had supper whilst a live jazz trio entertained. Recommended local, we re-visit again and again.
We went for the special Valentine's Day opening. This place is a real find, normally open only in The evenings on Thursdays and Fridays, as it's a shop and cafe by day.
The food was exceptionally good and good value too. A marinated salmon starter was excellent as was a fine cod main course. There was a selection of baked dessert items which were sweet and greedy and some sharp and strong cheddar served as a separate course.
The service was really friendly without being remotely intrusive.
Another lovely evening with live music and fine dining. Lovely service as always. Always enjoy this place.
The food was well prepared and presented and the service was excellent.
Great breakfast and nice independent café, but a little pricey for the portions. The online menu prices for not match up to the menus in restaurant. I had a voucher to spend but otherwise would have been a little frustrated at the cost. Nothing under £9:50 for breakfast!
great local spot! and dog friendly!

We didn't get the nicest table allocated although we were the only ones with a reservation. I would always think that people that make a reservation show an excitement and loyalty which should be more appreciated and honored. The service was rather slow, so not a place if you are rushed for time.
Cannot rate this restaurant as they cancelled booking saying they were short staffed so we're not going to ooen
The restaurant was closed having received a confirmation from open table
Another really lovely evening at abode, with really engaging live music, not loud but so enjoyable and adding atmosphere to the lovely food and conversation. Can't wait to go again soon.
Very poor cafe with disjointed service. Possibly would be OK during the week but it took 20mins to have order taken, one dish (full English) arrived with cold eggs and bacon but 'on fire' potatoes. Had to chase staff to get cutlery and after had to queue for 15mins to pay.
I like the concept. Staff just too overwhelmed will not be back.
My husband and I absolutely love this place. It's got a fantastic atmosphere, lovely welcoming staff and delicious healthy food. It's great value and for all these reasons, we keep coming back!
Always a joy coming to Absolute Abode - lovely staff, delicious menu and great live music which gives ambiance.
