I have eaten at the Engine House a few times, but since the change of ownership, have struggled to get a decent vegetarian meal here. The menu is very meat-oriented, and lacks interesting options for vegetarians, with the exception of the veggie breakfast. Last time I went I was served avocado which was way past its best, and shouldn't have... More

We are sorry you were disappointed with our food, we try to have vegetarian options on the menu as well as on our specials( risotto is always vegetarian for example). As for the timing we recommend that you pre order over the phone or email as we cannot predict how busy we will get. More

Been here a couple of times for breakfast now and have never left disappointed or hungry. My favourite is the Eggs Benedict Royal- fresh ingredients, lovely presentation and great flavours. It's the best I have ever had and you cannot go wrong for the price! We have a latte and fresh orange each which is equally as good. Lovely little... More

We used a Groupon Voucher and had lunch. From the warm welcome to the friendly goodbye, everything was perfect. Their homemade burgers are the absolute BEST!, especially the spicy jalapeno one, which I had, and even without the reduced cost with the voucher, are really good value, as is the rest of the menu including drinks prices. We will certainly... More

I have visited her a few times as the sandwiches and soups are nice to have at lunchtime however, I end up swerving this place as they take so long to take your order, and then the food has taken 30 mins to arrive at our table before- quite a long time when all you ordered was a sandwich, especially...

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
