Had the eggs benedict but I wouldn't recommend this if you're really hungry. One piece of toast was a little bit lame to be honest. The ham was also quite fancy, I thought maybe prosciutto, but I really would have preferred some thick cut local ham. I like this place but sometimes think it tries too hard to be up... More

Called in this morning for breakfast and we were not dissapointed.Ordered eggs benedict & eggs royale both were delicious along with our lattes. Also bought some lovely items from the deli. Will definitely be back soon.

I really like Fresh Basil and its produce. The breakfasts are really good quality and quantity. That said I was really put off 1/2 way through my lemon curd tart when there was a large green mouldings patch under the merengue. As I'd eaten half of it I felt sick. I returned it and got an apology. When the bill... More

Hi Chris... this is Charlotte the owner at fresh basil...I'm very sorry to hear about your recent experience with us and I have just spoken with my manager to find out the details of what happened as I don't believe I was in the shop that day, he also knows nothing about the incident either. I would really appreciate if... More

Visited Fresh Basil for a networking meeting, which took place upstairs. Coffee and tea was served and the order was taken by a member of the team. The group was made up of about 12-14 people and we all did intro's before our breakfast came. I had the Veggie breakfast which comes with amazing Vegetarian Haggis! Really enjoyed the time... More

I have been coming here since I started working in the local area I would say once a week and usually order the same thing which is bacon and cheese panini. Now the first thing is the majority of people there know me as I am a regular and they are always asking how I am and are really friendly... More

Been for just a coffee before which was lovely, but kept reading about the award winning breakfast so we had to give it a try. We weren't disappointed, the breakfast was delicious, the black pudding was the best part, took me back to tastes of childhood, service was quick, staff very friendly, definitely will visit again.

We ordered lunch, Eggs Benedict, Blue cheese and Beef panini and a Sandwich & Soup combo from 'little basil' section of the menu. Our drinks took ages to arrive, a bottle of prosecco... More

Called in for a hot drink and a panini. Sat upstairs and had to clear the table ourselves, the initial table we wanted to sit at had food all over it and the floor. This was not cleared up for a good 15 minutes. The coffees arrived which were fine but we had finished them well before the food arrived.... More

Called in on a wet Monday lunch and immediately it was a feast for the eyes - a wonderful selection of deli items, cakes, breads and more. Seating upstairs is on a mezzanine kind of set up where you have a good view of everything going on and there is some starting downstairs too. Comprehensive menu including specials on a... More

Went to buy some items before Christmas. Slow service - I was next to be served, but the member of staff answered the 'phone first, then rearranged some pate dishes in the servery, then had a chat with some friends - and then dealt with me. At the premium prices they charge, I expect better.
