We've been several times to this new Portuguese style eatery and it has the potential to be great. Run by a British chef with experience of Portuguese cuisine he and his business partner have done a good job.
A laid back atmosphere, sofa seating if you want, tastefully decorated and furnished. I think the menu will evolve into a more complete offering but it's great to see different things on a cafe style menu. Portions are not huge but so long as the prices remain as they are then I've no quibbles. A couple of things that would improve the place immediately, suitable seating or high chairs for children and foodwise, please no soft pappy supermarket sliced bread with the soup!! Make it a crusty chunk of decent white or granary, of course they may have run out of the decent stuff the day I had soup but an emergency supply in the freezer isn't beyond a possibility.
Try the place, I'm sure you'll be surprised by what at first appearance might be a typical mill shop cafe but is, in fact, a decent destination in it's own right!

We have called here several times and its always been a great stop.
It is all char grilled and tastes superb
It is authentic piri piri made by Portuguese and as such great. There are quick snacks like panini ,kebabs but on skewers whole sea bream then there are a selection of cakes and wine that are extra reasonable starting at £8 to £9 for names you know such as Maguigan etc,
We had half a Piri Piri chicken chips and rice £4.95 a Latte etc. £1.95
They have excellent bottled beers Peroni,Sagres San Miguel and at £2.45 a bottle its great!
We call often now its worth a call especially if you are into cloth,material etc as its in the large Oakmount mill who do a huge selection of cloths etc.
