Simply Classic is a family run business which offers outside catering as well as the restaurant service. We go for lunch there about twice per week on average, and for evening meals on special occasions. The food is always excellent as are the staff.

We eat at the Bistro at least once a month & are never dissapointed. The prices are very reasonable & the food always good. Service is always efficient & friendly. Lunch times can be busy but there are always a few tables free. My two sons love the chicken tikka & cheese panini's, the jacket potatoes are huge & the stir fried noodles excellent. They also open on Saturday morning/afternoon for brekfast & lunch & Saturday evening, but you may need to ring to check if they have a party booking. I never knew this place existed until someone who works on Shuttleworth Mead mentioned it, really glad we tried it.

I have visited Simply Classic Bistro on many occasions for over 9 years. It is the best lunchtime venue for miles around. The menu is simple but extensive, eg. baked potatoes, hot & cold sandwiches, paninis, lasagne, quiche; extremely reasonably priced, and everything is fresh & cooked to order perfectly in a matter of minutes. The staff are friendly and obliging, for example, for anyone with a small appetite who cannot manage to finish all their sandwich, they will wrap the remainder in foil & put it in a paper bag for them to take home.(you certainly wouldn't want to leave it behind!) They take telephone & fax orders for local workplaces, reserve their tables & have all the food ready for the allotted time. In good weather like we have at present, you can sit outside. It is only open Monday -Friday, as it is situated on a business park. You can also purchase food to takeaway, I recently purchased a tuna melt & a steak, onion & mushroom bap, and as they were wrapped in foil, were still warm when I arrived at my friend's house over 30 mins later. This Bistro is brilliant & little known, unless you have worked in the Simonstone area. It opens early for workers' breakfasts also, I believe. It definitely deserves to be top of the list for a lunchtime treat!

Went yesterday for lunch after seeing these reviews, had not heard of it before. Agree with all that's said, good home made food, good prices, friendly staff. Will certainly return.
