We go here regularly for breakfast and this is by far our favourite place. The staff are all really friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The food is also excellent and really reasonably priced. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

I think one or two people are getting confused here. This place is nowhere near the centre of Burnley. It's on Simonstone business park. Anyway, on to the food. 8 of us visited today (pre booked) with a variety of dishes consumed. They cater for vegetarians and also serve gluten free. All well sized portions & piping hot. Chicken goujons were huge, you'd be forgiven for mistaking them for fish. Talking of fish, 2 lots of fish and chips were consumed, lasagne with garlic bread and steak and ale pie. Now that was spectacular, absolutely packed with meat. One of our party always gets the homemade cheese and onion pie (boring, I know), but he says it's the best he's ever tasted. Inside is a bit like a big open plan cafe. If you can cope with that, this place is well worth a visit. Recommended.

Simply Classic is really worth a visit. Don't be put off that's it's on a business park. The atmosphere is so far from that of a business park canteen. It is simply (pardon the pun) a lovely bistro. Facilities are great, the food is always delicious with a good range to choose from. This is topped by the warmest, most friendly and funny (ha ha not weird) staff. Each time we go we love the food and banter. A huge thanks from Sue and Peter

A good menu, all freshly cooked.easy. Friendly service. Good parking. Unexpected on an industrial estate but worth a visit

Went for lunch with a friend. First visit. Felt like a works canteen. Staff were lovely but didn't know one glass of wine from another and said so when ordering. They were actually the best thing about it though and that they left you alone whilst eating. Not sure if that's a positive or not as the food was average to say the least. Jacket potato with tuna mayo. Not much to go wrong except it was cold. My friend had an omelette which looked nice but was also Luke warm. Complaining would have spoilt a nice afternoon with a friend. They shut at 4pm and were cleaning around us at 3.30 which was uncomfortable. All in all not sure id go back in a hurry.
