Food is excellent Please stop putting the Watercress on everything. I know it's healthy and adds greenery to the meals but do u have to put it on everything? Great experience in Madden's, the staff were very attentive and friendly. Recommend this bistro to everyone

Dropped in for a tea and scone. It was mid morning and the place was not too busy. The staff were very friendly. The tea and scone were delicious. Good spot.

We ate in Madden's Bistro on 9th December 2016. The food was really good and great value for money. The Bistro catered for 15 people on short notice and they did a super job. Thanks to all the staff.

Good vegetarian options and very attentive, welcoming service, with good humour. The three-course menu was extremely good value too.

The lamb chops were beautiful. Great flavours in the food and staff were very pleasant. Reasonably priced for what you get. Ambiance wasn't outstanding.
