Shirellas was a pleasant enough venue for a cheap lunch with colleagues, but had started to look a little tired. It closed down in 2015 and has recently reopened as 'Garzotti'.

Very pleasant cafe. Friendly staff and the meals are excellent both in quality and value for money. I enjoy the very relaxed atmosphere here. Have been enjoying meals for a couple of years at this cafe.

Shirellas cafe has a fantastic selection and , trust me, the dishes are scrumptious across the board. My family and I first sampled Shirellas a month ago when I moved into an apartment nearby ...

Not haute cuisine, just straightforward cafe food. On that basis, it hits the mark. I use this place occasionally when I need to kill time. Service always friendly; food does the job; clean; better value than some places nearer the town centre. Closure of the local FE college has it the business.

Called in for sandwich lunch with 4 colleagues. We had tea coffee and sandwiches. It was a busy place so you expect a good turnover All ok except that the bread was stale a couple of days old - not just yesterdays. We were in a rush so no time to get things changed so we ate them.

I ordered the Set A, but asked if I could have mushrooms, instead of the sausage. My partner also ordered the Set A, but asked for mushrooms, instead of the bacon. This was happily accepted by...

There are a number of combinations that you can choose for breakfast. The staff were friendly and the service was prompt. The place is clean and you feel confident in eating here. We would eat here again.
