Arrived for an early sitting, staff attentive and very welcoming. Food served promptly and well delivered. Main room filled up quickly but service still fine. What’s not to like the toilets were a bit cold other than that 10/10.

My two friends and I had a lovely Saturday brunch at Sophie’s. The food was delicious and the service was great. The restaurant was busy enough to provide a nice atmosphere and we especially enjoyed the beautiful view. We all agreed that we would definitely return and would love to try out the evening menu.
