Sausage and Mash Cafe (or S&M Cafe as they proudly call themselves) is a throwback to the traditional greasy spoons of the 1940s and 50s.
The first S&M Cafe opened in 2002 in the former space of Alfredo’s Snack Bar, a classic cafe which closed down in 2000. S&M restored the space to its former glory, even keeping the original Alfredo’s signs in the window advertising ices and teas. The cafe has been used as a set for several movies (Quadrophenia and Mojo) and is a great place to get a full English breakfast (served all day), and enjoy the glorious formica and chrome surroundings.
