The first time we have had a meal here. It exceeded our expectations. Although not cheap, the food was very well presented and tasted delicious. The staff were pleasant and helpful. We look forward to returning!

Good place for catching up with friends for lunch or just a coffee. We enjoyed a glass of wine & cheesy bread & chunky chips. We were able to sit & chat away. We chose to sit inside although there were seats outside by the river. As we left I spotted the ice cream & thought it should be tested!... More

Stated we were new to the area on arrival but were not walked through the menu or even smiled at. The waitresses promptly reminded us that they were closing at 5 so we needed to order - we were scanning the blackboard at the time - but it was still 4:45. After choosing a milkshake with whipped cream and a... More

Lovely location by the river, very obliging staff and great food, so far have sampled their home made soup and hearty fish pie, greatly appreciated on a cold, miserable day, will be back, as what I saw being eaten by the other patrons warrants further investigation….

We have been here numerous times and every time the food excellent. It's always busy here and the service never suffers as a result. The menu has a good range of variety all made to a high standard. A lot of local pubs/restaurants could learn a lot from this place! I always highly recommend this place.

The food at Fays is reliably good. The customer service is friendly and helpful. Great setting where you have the option to eat outside and watch the little river go by and see the ducks

I decided to visit Fay's Bistro with my partner as I wanted her to sample the quality products. We shared a delicious Banana cake and excellent coffee but the star attraction was the delicious homemade sausage roll, absolutely delicious! Well worth a visit and super location

My partner and I ordered fish pie. It was horrible - just tasted of cheese and strangely sweet. I couldn't even bear to eat it. My daughter's meal arrived and all 3 elements were wrong! We left feeling very cross we'd parted with over £20!
