    Delightful staff. Quick service Lovely ambience. Limited menu ..... perhaps we didn't understand this was Brunch and we were expecting Lunch. Pizza was only ok .... looked good but " soggy" base Mushroom/ Guacamole on Sourdough--- nice idea but guacamole would have been nicer on the side. When warm with eggs & mushrooms-- took away from taste of overall dish. One egg would have been sufficient.

    Overall, the food and service were great, but the white wine should be cold cold and unfortunately it was not. While background music is lovely, this was much too loud and made talking difficult. It could definitely do with being turned down a few notches. But overall good service and decor was lovely.

    I had dinner here Saturday night with my husband and 2 friends. The atmosphere was buzzing and the service was impeccable. The food was delicious. I had the duck but found it a bit tough if I’m honest. Apart from that everything was great. Very clean too. Thank you. I would come back.

    We took our 88 year old Mom for the experience. She was awestruck. Staff were so nice. Food was delicious and the portion size was substantial, great value for money. We had such a lovely time that I went online while there and booked again for a special occasion in December as the staff sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to my brother. The only disadvantage is that there is no disability parking available

    I had a really enjoyable experience in Sophie's. The ambiance there is one of the best. I have to say their service was excellent, the food was very nice but just on the expensive side. That would be my only critique, i couldn't see any mid week deal or early bird option but aside from that i'd highly recommend Sophies.

    I have been in Sofies before was very disappointed with the wine and the food. I loved the ambience and the service was excellent so on this occasion I just stuck to pizza and cocktails and enjoyed my night.
