I could have ordered anything on the menu and would have been very happy with the choice. Only improvement is lower the volume of music in the summer house. Excellent in everything else.

First time dining here and it was very enjoyable. After a slight delay in getting the menu out we highlighted we had a show to go to- the staff were great in ensuring we weren't going to be late. Each dish we had was very tasty and of top quality. Also, the cheeseboard did not disappoint as can often happen.

Hi, I have loved cafe 52 & have visited for years. I loved your summer house. I thought service was good given there were only two waitresses. However I feel like the food quality has been much better in the past. My mushroom dish lacked flavour & my lemon tart had undercooked pastry.

We had booked for 6pm because we had somewhere to go afterwards but the menus weren’t printed till 6.15 - it would have been better to know there was no chance of food before 6.30. The staff were lovely once the menus arrived but it made for an anxious start. My food was delicious but my partner’s oyster mushroom dish was too salty for his taste. I think our guest enjoyed hers - she said she did! The rating is a compromise based on our different experiences.
