We often come here for lunch, and the (vegetarian) food is always excellent: soup and cheese scone, or salad with quiche etc. Staff are friendly, and there is a good atmosphere.

I'm not a vegetarian but I don't mind eating vegetarian meals - in fact, if someone else makes them it's more enjoyable! Last time I was in Cranks, many years ago, the salads seemed to me to consist of mounds of grated carrot and little else. So I was pleasantly to make a return visit for a mid-week lunch. The... More

This is a lovely busy restaurant with healthy well prepared food and friendly staff, however, the service set up is in need of updating in my honest opinion. There were two members of staff behind the counter at a busy meal time who were expected to take your order, serve up the prepared food( heating in a microwave where necessary... More

Crank's cheese scones are the best. If you have one, ask them to slightly warm it and then ask for an extra pat of butter - really tasty. The coffee varies a bit - sometimes good and sometimes not great. The staff are friendly and the service is usually pretty good.

We often stop at the Cider Press. We have recently had lunch twice at Cranks - the quiche and salad or soup and bread. On both occasions it was a tasty lunch. Nothing special, just regular tasty food. The prices are above average with the quiche and salad costing nearly £9, but it is a full plate. Looking at some... More

It was - to say the least - quiet at lunchtime. The salad was good but the rest rather "odd". Vegetable samosa - horrid and bitter. Double espresso - tasteless and muddy. Apple and malt slice had not trace of malt and little of apple. Service pleasant. The apricot slice - a signature cake - was as good as ever.... More

Stumbled into this gem in need of lunchtime fodder. Hadn't appreciated its vegetarian tendencies but my partner and I ordered from the menu and whilst portions were hardly generous for the price, the meal was tasty and delicious. Staff, extremely friendly and service was quick and efficient. Food extremely fresh. A delight. Would highly recommend. You get what you pay... More
