We had lunch in the Engine House Cafe yesterday. We had been once before, for breakfast, and the eggs Benedict was really good. Yesterday we had one of their specials - a lamb burger. It was succulent. One of the best burgers I've ever had, and I told them so! I had salad with mine and my partner chose chips.... More

We live round the corner and have been quite often. The food is excellent, high technical standard and the cakes are delicious. It's a family run business and the couple that own it are friendly. It's a relaxed environment.

Visited on a Saturday evening, ended up spending most of the night there ! We had a Groupon which was superb value. The food was lovely, the ambience is good, and the service was very pleasant and friendly. Quite a limited menu, but all our party enjoyed their selections. Not easy to find, but well worth hunting out. 3 top... More

We used a Groupon to give this place a try. Very impressed. The breakfast was excellent value and well cooked. A little difficult to find but please persevere, you won't be disappointed.

We ate the Engine House for the first time as we had a voucher for breakfast and drinks for 2. The food was lovely as was the tea. The prices were value for money even if you pay full price so we will be returning. I would like to come back again soon for a weekend evening meal and drinks.

Visited here this evening. Only one other couple in at the same time as us, but there was still a pleasant atmosphere. MI had the rump steak and my partner had the jalapeño burger. Presentation was good and so was the food. Had a brownie for dessert which was nice. My only criticism is that they didn't have cream or... More

Service was first class here and my salad was lovely. Their menu choices are quite limited though. It's not as busy as cross keys or midnight bell which means it is easier to get a table.

Absolutely superb! Bit of a strange location and hard to work out what this place is....but its a little gem! Just hope it stays open as we were the only people in there. The rump steak and trimmings were sublime highly recommended

I met my daughter on her lunch hour, we arrived shortly after 12. There were 3 tables occupied when we arrived. We ordered 2 burgers and a tuna sandwich for my youngest. Unfortunately we didn't get to have lunch together, due to the time it took for our food to arrive. At 12:55 My daughter requested her burger to be... More
