Our party of 3 had a very relaxing and enjoyable lunch. The food was let down a little by a rather tasteless garlic bread, but it was a small thing. We were seated right next to the counter and my elderly mother is deaf so the sound of the coffee grinder and the clattering of plates was a bit loud in her hearing aids, but when I asked her if she wanted me to request that we move tables she declined so we can't hold the cafe or its very efficient and friendly staff responsible for that - they didn't know she's deaf.
It's good to have a civilised place where both the food and wine are of good quality and reasonably priced.

Overall, we had a really good experience. We'll certainly be back and we'll recommend you to others. Thank you.

I have been to Passeys many times and have always found the food lovely, staff very helpful and welcoming. They make you feel very comfortable, which is especially important in the current times if you are wary about dining out. I am going back twice over the course of the next week, I have recommended Passeys to my friends and quite a few of them have been already.

Phone call in the morning to say no chef on duty that day - but we could have sandwiches. VERY poor choice of sandwiches. This was rectified by offering morning rolls - i.e. Bacon, egg tolls. Need more choice of sandwiches, wraps.

Another return to Passey's for breakfast but with friends this time. It could not have been better. Lovely ambiance, friendly and welcoming staff and the best veggie full breakfast we have ever had. The meat version was equally good according to my husband. Fab coffee too.

Very nice space with attentive, friendly staff and lovely food. A little cramped if you are covid nervous and they have done the very best that they can with limited toilet space. Slightly pricey and only 3 wines sold by the glass. Will definitely return but might wait until the pandemic figures have improved further.

Service friendly and prompt, food delish (I had the special which was duck, was beautifully cooked, melted in your mouth, and the roasted veg and gravy with it was divine). Hubby had balmoral burger - excellent, child had chicken with noodles - also delish. Nachos to start which had the sauce they use for their Mac n cheese, was also amazing so I’m having the Mac n cheese next time I visit! Can’t fault. Will def be back!!

Lovely dinner at outdoor seating area. Table had been reserved inside, however it was no problem to switch to outdoor area to enable us to enjoy the early evening sunshine. Staff were so attentive, yet friendly and chatty throughout the evening. Second time I've gone for the duck breast on the specials board and again, it was cooked to perfection with the perfect accompliment of roasted veg and a light mash. Finished evening with Passey's signature hot coffee cake which was to die for - think stick toffee without the sweet stickiness . No cream required as the warm espresso shot provided all the moisture required. Perfect evening with friend and will return very soon with other half.
