Very welcoming airy atmosphere. Full of light. Staff particularly welcoming and friendly. We had a set Christmas meal which all really enjoyed. The presentation was good and the taste was excellent and hot. We will return and have.

We went for breakfast and enjoyed what we had but the whole place needs a facelift to bring it into the 21st century - and the toilets need shutting down completely. A food establishment should at the very least know that providing one towel for all of your customers to dry their hands on is a major no-no in almost... More

A very dated café but that adds to the charm almost. Food is the usual café fair and probably more expensive than surrounding pubs. Service was average and food was tasty but nothing special. We'll go again if other places are busy.

The first time I've been here for 40!! years. The restaurant is clean and the staff friendly but, on the day I visited, rushed off their feet so maybe not enough staff employed? The food coming out and delivered to tables looked really good. My dining friend & I ordered Cottage Pie with vegetables & chips & gravy. All very... More

I'm not sure why I've never written a review about The Sidewalk before because I've been visiting it for about 30 years!! This is the place I choose to visit for a hearty lunch or a snack because I know it is always good! Today I had the chicken goujons with chips and salad. They were excellent! 'Melt in the... More

I have been coming here since I was about 7 with my parents and I now take my 7 year old here. The food is always great and the kids still get a free lolly. Brilliant staff always happy and very friendly. I love this place.
