A home from home where hospitality comes first. Café 21 is a sociable and effortlessly stylish space, serving crafted comforts, lunch bites and sweet treats. This breakfast, lunch and early evening venue is the place for a mid-shopping trip lunch, business meeting, afternoon tea, or a quiet cup of the good stuff. A place where ‘me time’ matters.

    I was very disappointed with the cakes that were served with the afternoon tea. Chocolate and Cherry roll was disgusting and the other 3 cakes were well below what I expected from Cafe 21

    Disappointing the roast potatoes were green and the turkey wasn’t great . We were offered complimentary desserts but one meal came with a dessert so one glass of Prosecco was given there were three of us so another one was given we also received done complimentary cages which were obviously from the Afternoon tea menu The overall appearance of the restaurant was shabby and one of the chairs was full of crumbs . It was a special treat for my 60th Birthday but I was totally underwhelmed and very disappointed in the food service and the overall appearance of the restaurant. I felt the gestures that were offered were insulting and not appropriated. We were ashes several times was the food ok etc and on each occasion I pointed out that some of the food was unacceptable. I do hope my points will be addressed .

    Staff were quite rude, one member of our party doesn’t have a huge appetite so just ordered a side as a main, but the waitress was quite rude about it. Value for money wasn’t great, and it was very loud. The food was delicious though :)

    I was on my own so thought it may have felt a bit strange. But the staff where so friendly and made me feel comfortable in the surroundings. The afternoon tea for one was really good and the filter coffee unlimited was excellent. I will be back in January to celebrate my 60th. Thank you to all the amazing staff that work there. You are all a credit to the restaurant.

    After eating in many of your eating places for many years I have found that since the Pandemic you have lost a bit of “sparkle”. Menus are unexciting and have become very expensive I suggest letting the chefs being more adventurous with the menu and certainly looking carefully at your pricing structures in the future.

    Paid £13 for a “superfood salad” that was little more than a glorified side salad. Left hungry and disgruntled. Won’t be back😡😡😡

    Modern clean surroundings. Seating was quite near other diners each side but it wasn’t a problem for us. Staff very attentive. We had croque monsieur which was very tasty but a large appetite is needed. Salads included tomatoes, which were full of flavour, and dressed perfectly. Very satisfied.

    We had a small issue with the time taken to recieve our desserts but this could not have been rectified any more fantastically than it was by your manager and team. The service provided was outstanding. We were celebrating my mams bday and you really made it memorable and just brilliant. Thank u again to all staff and manager. X
