As a foodie of some years standing...well, some years sitting down with a knife and fork to be honest - I have been in many 'worthy' restaurants. In days gone by it meant eateries that were ethically pure but usually culinary death. An array of dishes where a strong pair of gnashers for industrial chewing was the order of the day. Over the years all this has changed and fresh tasty food is the order of the day.

Hundred Monkeys promises much in the way of monkeys and although in fails to deliver in the primate stakes - 'er, no they don't serve primate steaks! - they do serve rather lovely food. It does have the feel of a New Age eatery and indeed it caters for vegans, vegetarians and coeliacs - my wife, a coeliac herself was delighted - but meat eaters and fish filleters are not forgotten. A rather good bistro style menu is on offer together with a rather delightful array of desserts and some truly splendid cakes. Decent milk shakes too if you feel particularly childish. I did.

Favorite Dish: Strange to say that although I am not especially fond of the humble carrot - unless stroked naked and raw into a cheesy creamy dip of loveliness or drowned in meaty gravy - I am inordinately fond of carrot cake and I'm told they do a jolly good one! In fact the person who told me was the strange woman sitting opposite. My dear wife. I think I downed an orange and lemon cake and my wife's gluten free concoction was equally delicious. I'm not sure which of the 100 monkeys made it but they're well obviously evolving fast ...
