Great light lunch with good wine -who could ask for more on a wet winter afternoon. Well done Fay's, you kept us content.

“Wasn't won over”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014 via mobile

The staff were lovely very welcoming and even though they made a mistake with the order they apologised and rectified it. The food was good well presented but I felt a little on the pricy side. I went with my baby and was a little disappointed there was no baby changing facility, I had to change him on the floor in the toilet which was a bit smelly my 3 year old even noticed. It's a lovely place but I wasn't won over.

Staple bistro dishes but all with a twist. Extremely good value for the price. Service impeccable. Nice view of the town.

“Ideal place to meet for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

We visited the bistro on the opening night and had a good meal,food quality was excellent and the portions just the right size.Service was attentive .delighted to see locally produced cheeses,meat products and soft drinks on sale in the Deli and available on the menu.Went back for lunch a few days later which was really good value,freshly made to order and again excellent quality.l hope they do well and stay in Calne - we now have a place to eat out that rivals some of the other towns like Devizes and Marlborough.

“An unexpected and pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

A very airy and clean bistro in the Town Centre overlooking a stream yet only yards away from the shops. All the food is home made, beautifully presented and delicious. The sign on the wall would hint that Fay has only been established since October last year. It was certainly popular with the natives, and rightly so. We wish her well.
