“Purple Cow cafe closed until further notice”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Today, 30th May 2014, when I passed the Purple Cow Cafe, I noticed a chalk board in the entrance courtyard that stated "Closed until further notice. Sorry for the inconvenience."
The windows were lightly whitewashed.
I heard that there was a change in ownership but cannot confirm if the restaurant is permanently closed or not. Maybe they are refurbishing. There website is suspended.
The overall rating is based on a previous visit.

“Chunky chips!”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

Food good, quiet and pleasant. Better lunch time dining than evening has to be said.
Chunky chips were delicious too!

“Can't believe it's closed its such a nice place”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

I have been here more than 7+ times as I live close and it's so nice tapas menu and tasty and clean and friendly. However it was never much open apart from fri and sat... they could do so much business. I was shocked to see the sign "closed until further notice" so sad that is listed ad up for rent. Please reopen I love purple cow!
