This establishment suffered a devastating fire some months ago, so, when it eventually came back into being we reserved a table looking forward to re-acquainting ourselves with the familiar bonhomie and lovely food. WRONG, sorry to have to go into reverse gear and I am loathe to pick out all the negatives .Maybe we picked a bad day but that... More

Food as good as always and new decor is great. Still looks like the old cappuccino bar. 😁 Recommend mushrooms and the squid for starters. Crespelle are great too.

Returned here recently with friends. We were booked in before Christmas but a fire in the premises forced closure for several weeks. Although we were a large group (17) we were well looked after and served promptly. The food was good and as usual, good value. Pleasant ambience in this busy restaurant.

Visited this last week on a 'Girls Night Out', never been before and was impressed. Very light, a tad noisy though with lots of laughter etc. Tables nice, clean and well presented - if just a bit close to your 'neighbour'. Waitress service prompt and polite. Good Menu - once selected along with the fizz we just chatted. Food arrived... More

This place is the best. Absolutely good value for money, brilliant menu and food and it won't break the bank. Lunchtimes are a particularly good deal. The fact that it is always full speaks volumes. Our favourite place in town. It was shut following a fire but now reopened and even better.

We are big fans of the Cappuccino Bar and were very sorry to hear about the fire that meant they were shut in the lead up to Christmas. We were determined to support them as soon as the business re-opened and went on their first Saturday night. As always the atmosphere was buzzing - everyone always seems to be having... More

Having heard about this lovely restaurant, a friend and I decided to try out their food. What a lovely surprise, it was really good. The staff were friendly and helpful and the service was very good. Had a lovely pasta dish complete with salad and a glass of wine for 5.50p. at lunchtime. We will be going a lot more... More

Love Cappuccino Bar. We are regulars and the food and service is always good. Devastated when they had a fire and can't wait to go back.
