A little dissapointing. From the service to the food, no " wow " factor. Started poorly. Ordered earl grey, got green tea. Eggs benidict was flat, and the holindaise sauce was over vinegered. The three that had cake didn't finish them. Massive doorstop portions, but...More

These small cakes are for display only and are NOT served to customers. We have a waiter/waitress service for all of our cakes, and if someone wants one of these we serve them from our secure area

I visited here for mid-morning. The service was good. The Earl Grey Tea and slice of coffee and walnut cake were both tasty. Unfortunately, the cake slice was massive and I couldn't finish it. The total price was £7.25, which I think is expensive. Pay...More

Wandering Marlborough for a cafe saw the board outside advertising a fish finger sandwich which got my taste buds going. We ordered this, a pot of tea and the soup of the day. Came very quickly despite it being busy and the soup was clearly...More

We stopped for a light lunch on the way through the town. The food was lovely and they did a gluten free fish and chips for my wife. I was a little surprised that the cheese ploughman’s came in a toasted sandwich, nevertheless it was...More

We popped in for an impromptu breakfast and had a wonderful experience. Very clean and beautifully presented together with great pricing made this a wonderful find. Recommend the Full English Breakfast and the large Meringue!!
