This is a slightly unusual cafe as you enter via a clothes store and head upstairs through more clothes racks. Not sure I would have found it on my own. There is a limited choice of main meals but all looked good. I tried the Welsh faggotts and really enjoyed them. Would certainly go back and try some of the... More

This place is a real gem. The food is excellent, good size portions and the choice of menu is really good. The staff are very friendly and pleasant. If you want a lovely meal with reasonable prices you must visit the M-Bar Cafe.

This is a terrific find but have held off leaving a review as I did not want to share it! The food is fabulous, very tasty, good quality and amazing value. It is so welcoming as well. Reminds me of those wonderful family run places in Southern Europe. Love it.

The new menu has temptation chalked all over the board. I started at the top with the slow cooked lamb pie. I have a new hat that allegedly, makes me look tremendous but would gladly swap all the admiring glances for this pie. They very kindly gave me a spoon to prevent a room emptying bowl licking incident.
