Visited the Fat Birds for a quick lunch in February and was pleasantly suprised. The place was buzzing and yet we were given a table straight away. Good selection of food and drinks including bottled beers. The cafe has a great atmosphere with a mix of all ages all chatting and eating away. The FB breaksat was expansive and a... More

Great cup of coffee, excellent cakes, super service. All in all a little treasure of a cafe. Preferable to the high street names that are in abundance.

Went back to give this a second try but boy was I disappointed. Despite being directly opposite the best butchers in the UK, Aubrey Allan they do NOT use their bacon or sausages. Instead turning out mass produced rubbish. I asked if they had wifi to which the reply was "No we don't want people sitting here all day on... More

You say that you went back to Fat Birds to give it a second try. Your last review (in 2012) says that your last visit (in 2012) was your THIRD !!. So by my calculation you were giving it your FOURTH try ! Surely if your experiences of Fat Birds have been as bad as you claim you would have... More

We stopped here for Sunday breakfast, it was busy but we found space upstairs. First impressions, it's not immaculate, took a while to get a slightly grubby menu but the waitress was very welcoming. Regarding the breakfast, I had veggie breakfast, my husband the extra large meat breakfast, and my son ordered a portion of toast. All the food was... More

We're regulars at Fat Birds Cafe for morning coffee and breakfast. It must be good as it's been our cafe of choice for some years now!

I used to love this cafe but things have started to slide. The drinks, although expensive, are second to none, but the food is another matter. You're often told that "there's a 25 minute wait for food" and if you say ok, they seem disappointed to have not put you off. The bacon and sausage are poor quality and so... More

I often pop in to Fat Birds Cafe and also meet friends there regularly. Customer service is exceptional and the food is always fresh and tasty. Occasionally, I am told there is a short wait for hot food but surely this is to be expected in such a popular and busy cafe? I am always happy to wait. Who wouldn't... More

We go here a lot and the service and food is excellent. Would definitely recommend if you just want a light, or not so light, snack
