A tempting cafe classics menu is also served.

As well as crowd-pleasing blends, the wine list Café St Honore restaurant offers a host of bespoke blends for the wine enthusiast. For a graceful conclusion, tempting desserts are served alongside artisan coffee and dainty petit fours.

    Wonderful meal, fantastic balance of rich and fresh spring flavours in every dish. Staff were very attentive and welcoming and the atmosphere was the perfect balanced of luxury and relaxed as always! Asparagus starter, lamb main were likely the highlights of the meal. Wines were also a great selection and prosecco a wonderful start to our meal.

    Lovely meal. Attentive service. Attractive decor.

    Lovely fat mussels to start, with light but creamy sauce. The beef blade main just fell apart beautifully in the mouth - nice accompaniments.
    Waiting staff needed to check before being able to describe certain dishes to us.
    There was a large party next to us, so room was a little tight to spread out.

    Excellent food made from high quality produce. Without a shadow of a doubt, the best trifle I've have ever had (strawberry trifle in case you see it in the menu). Friendly and pleasant staff. Highly recommend it!
