Well it says brunch but you get the lunch menu. If the menu is ready. Quirkily charming with food very tasty and good coffee with soya or almond milk. Expect a laid back unhurried and mildly eccentric approach ! Overall ok

Out with a mate taking a look at the newly opened Newport Street gallery across the road, currently without a cafe/restaurant, we chanced upon the Beaconsfield Gallery (well worth a mooch around) and the Ragged Canteen. Just wanted a little bite and both settled for...More

After seeing the reviews of the ragged canteen we thought we would pop in, but unfortunately our experience was quite the opposite of the previous reviewers. So much that it's hard to believe it's the same cafe. Our experience started badly, Although I'd phoned to...More
