“Coffee cake highly recommended!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Welcoming cafe with a varied and well priced menu conveniently situated in the heart of Kirkby Stephen. I popped in mid morning for tea and a very good piece of coffee cake! Customers appeared to be a good mix of locals and visitors. Service was quick and friendly. A big thanks to owner Stephen for helping get my lost phone back to me - it's good to know that there are still some honest people in the world!

“Excellent Restaurant Food!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

This café transforms itself to licensed restaurant on weekend nights.
It gets busy so you need to book to save disappointment.
It also closes early which does not suit late eaters and drinkers.
I had a very very good seafood risotto and couple of beers reasonable priced

“Excellence”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

5 people and 1 dog seeking a suitable place to eat on a hot and sunny day could be deemed a group unlikely to be fulfilled.
However, The Mulberry Bush in Kirkby Stephen presented itself to us as we walked through the historic market town.
Conveniently located on the main street but set back from the main road under a canopy, it truly was an oasis; welcoming, friendly, prompt and attentive service, shade, clean tables, fresh and clean cutlery, and, a varied selection of choice.
This is a well managed establishment, and those in charge clearly seek and know how to deliver excellent service.

“Not this Bistro is well worth a visit”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

What a little gem. Tim is an excellent Chef. Just returned from France and his cooking is superb. Wonderful atmosphere, pleasant staff and delicious food. Our only regret was that we didn't get to taste the desserts!
