I have eaten at Arighi Bianchi's from time to time for over thirty years (remember the days of the spiral staircase and creaky wicker chairs?). Yesterday Thursday April 27th 2017 was an extra special day that I do not expect to forget. The chicken dish from the special menu was absolutely superb. In my 80+ years I do not remember... More

Visited as part of a local group. Lovely tea and scones (warm and just out of the oven) with jam and clotted cream. This was followed by an entertaining, informative and highly amusing talk by Nick Bianchi, one of the members of the family owning the furniture store and cafe. We live locally so know the store and cafe well,... More

Arighi Bianchi is a labyrinth of stairs and passageways that each lead to a different furniture experience. Their eclectic mixture of styles, designs and colours make it virtually impossible not to find something to enhance every room in your house and their friendly, knowledgeable staff made our shopping experience a real pleasure.

Travelled about 100 miles for a nice look around Arichi Bianchi and a Sunday lunch. Arrived at 2.55 only to be told that the kitchen is closed at 3.00 due to them not being busy!..? Left us hungry and in a bit of a dilemma. NOT IMPRESSED ARICHI BIANCHI!!

We had heard very good reports about ABs Sunday roasts and decided to go there for Mother's Day. (We love to go for their coffees, lunches, or afternoon teas - food and service always good.)
