Your feedback...

We asked you to share your thoughts on our progress so far, and particularly some sample menus.... here's what you said.

On getting together
  • This is a VERY GOOD THING
  • Nice one mate, keep it coming
  • We should do Big Lunch every year (several people)
  • Regular craft market
  • Close this bit of the road permanently
  • Have monthly events eg West Indian food, South American... and close the road off
On The Hill Station :)
  • Very very very good initiative!!!
  • I will be here everyday no doubt!
  • Great idea
  • Great menu / nice winter menu / good brunch
  • I would eat all of these at any time but seasonal menu change is a really good idea
  • Glad you've got lots of veggie food
  • Great cakes!
Suggestions for The Hill Station
  • More creative interior (Ed: we're still working on it!)
  • Books to read / swap
  • Free wifi?? (several)
  • Toys for kids, play corner (several)
  • Sunday papers
  • BYOB or will you have a license?
  • Local art exhibition (Ed: see picture of the week wall space)
  • Live music (several)
  • Use local produce. Get veg from Green Shoots community garden. Keep fresh and local
  • Shorter menu with daily specials
On opening hours
  • stay open till late on a Friday - people will meat for a meal at the end of the week
  • it would be good if cafe could open some evenings 
  • what about Sundays being for private parties?

On pricing
  • Drinks are a little expensive (several)
