As a confirmed irish fry fan, I was sceptical about the concept of a veggie breakfast. But doctor's orders meant i had to try it. Initially, the veggie breakfasts I tried were healthy but boring, and very uninspiring to the taste buds. Until now. The Twist veggie breakfast includes at least 8 different vegetables with a cream cheese dip and... More

Great place for breakfast, delicious pancakes and sausages. Good value. Service ok. Orange juice described as freshly squeezed but was just cheap stuff, bit annoying. Good overall.

The food is always nice when we go to Twist, the staff excellent and lovely atmosphere. You can bring your own wine so this is a big bonus and you pay for corkage. Great selection on the menu and everything we tried was delicious.

We frequently visit here & have never had a bad feed! The kids love it as do myself & my wife. The menu is nicely varied but not too far out there at the same time. Good food, good quality & reasonably priced!
