Amazing breakfast

My friend brought me here to celebrate my 50th birthday and we had a truly delicious full English breakfast. The staff were attentive and we throroughly enjoyed spending some time chilling out.

Had another lovely lunch at C&K Have visited numerous times as I live locally and like to meet friends there. The cakes are superb and the new staff are very attentive. Everyone I have taken there always go back again. It's a very busy place and booking at peak times is essential. I can only be positive about this lovely... More

Great coffee, tasty cakes. Gorgeous quiches and the best soup of the day my Dad's ever had. Very busy so book a table in the garden room. There are only about 10 tables total. Food is great value

I was very excited about visiting today, especially as my friend accompanying me absolutely sang its praises. Honestly I was some what disappointed. Admittedly I was nearly 30mins late due to my ridiculous sat nav sending me cross country round the M25. When I arrived I was surprised to see the stand of cakes and sandwiches sitting there, my friend... More

The service as Cabbages and Kings has left little to be desired for some time now but I am sad to report that on my last visit it really was atrocious. The member of staff who took my call when I rang to book a table in advance for lunch was very rude and unhelpful, putting the phone down on... More

I wanted to treat my dad and sister to a cream tea. I looked on line and after reading numerous reviews on places finally decided that this one was just right. I phoned the day before to book a table (as we were travelling a long way and didn't want to be disappointed ) the lady who answered the phone... More

My husband had visited with work colleagues, previously and was sure I would love it - he was absolutely right! We were given a warm welcome and treated with the greatest courtesy by everyone, especially 'Paulo' (?) There were too many cakes to choose from, so we were very easily persuaded to try teeny slices of a variety on offer;... More

I love this place and come here often. The food and cakes really can't be faulted but the only downfall is the service. It seems that there have been some new staff recruited recently and whilst the waitresses are good, the waiter is like a bull in a china shop! He has no spacial awareness, and is quite abrupt and...
