“Great lunch, service and sunshine!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We stopped here for lunch as it was along a country lane but almost full. People were chatting and the waitress was laughing whilst serving. We also liked the name and were hungry. We both ordered Paninis (with salad) and a beer and these were great. The bill came to £17 which we felt was reasonable.

We will check this café out again when we next visit.

“Piano cafe”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Very nice, such a change from usual fare. Coffee a bit expensive though, maybe bigger cups. Slightly confusing entrance, as no waiter around.

“I don't normally want to eat salad in a restaurant but ...”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

the goats cheese and fig salad at the Piano Cafe was absolutely delicious. So often goats cheese is served unripe, tasteless and stone cold whereas this was lovely and soft and full of flavour. The same goes for the figs which were perfectly ripe. The dressing, the leaves and the reasonable prices turned it into the perfect summertime lunch, especially if you add a glass of the local ale. Loved it.

“Watch the world go by”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Relaxing here with freshly brewed coffee and a big bowl of yogurt and berries (a few more berries please) or a very appetizing bacon sandwich the perfect start to the day. Very welcoming airy fresh feeling and reasonable prices. Well worth a visit. Oh and WiFi an extra bonus.

“It's the place to be!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Try this new place out. It's has a very relaxed atmosphere, during the day great coffee, tea and cakes. Lunch and evenings good food, excellently presented and delicious. Live music some evenings, totally chilled.

Run by a welcoming family who really want people to enjoy themselves.
