Based in an old mail sorting house, Bean & Brush has been beautifully converted, with a mezzanine at the back where all the arts and crafts take place. Downstairs feels both grown up and child-friendly, with a selection of toys for little ones. The menu is appealing with locally-sourced, homemade dishes at a reasonable cost. Children’s food included jacket potatoes from £2.25, pasta bowls from £2.75 and a small portion of homemade stew just £2.95.
Food and service were really good. We made it upstairs to paint some pots and found a great range, both in price and variety from Dr. Who’s Tardis to Christmas Baubles. Decopatch is available too, and is ace if your child is not that artistic, as whatever happens, the end results all look amazing! Overall we thought Bean & Brush was fab – a brilliant place to meet mummy friends, or hook up with other families for a weekend brunch. 10 out of 10!
NB: The M&S car park is a maximum stay of one hour for 50p and a very efficient attendant is on patrol. The Tesco one opposite is better.
