I was introduced to Marwood by a friend as he said they serve great coffee, which they do, but it also has an atmosphere like no other. You're surrounded by the weirdest decorations, from movie memorabilia to bits of early computers, the music selection is always an experience and the staff are entertaining. In addition to great coffee they serve... More

Before I get onto the staff / atmosphere / clientèle let's cover some technicalities. They forgot to serve my black americano. It was left on the side. It was served to me just about warm with sugar I hadn't asked for. I was told I'd be charged for abother if I wanted one. The staff were apalling. The kind of... More

Individual; quirky; FAB pastries and cakes and very good coffee. Plenty to look at for the interior; and nice garden area out back. Good selection of juices too. LOVE the carrot cake.

Interesting, quirky & cool little place where we had a great coffee & cake experience. Staff nice enough but could be a little warmer & friendlier even if it is 30 mins before closing ;-)

Feels like home. Lovely, friendly people, great coffee, good gigs and stays open late. Brighton is less boring thanks to Marwood.

A friend of mine took me to this great little café in Brighton adjacent to the lanes. This is a café with attitude with fun if not slightly scary notices on the door about the clientele they don’t want. The coffee is a very high standard described as “kick xxx coffee” by the proprietor there is a range of great... More

So first thing I should say is that I actually really enjoyed my food. I had nachos which was one of the days specials. And now everything that was wrong... My iced coffee was warm, the staff were rude, we waited ages for food, the outside seating area needed a tidy up. I could babble on. Basically stay clear.

Odd little place with quirk furnishings but lovely food. Nachos with veggie chilli were yum and the pesto and goats cheese muffin was gorgeous. Softest, gooeyest brownie I've ever tried. A good little find, not too packed on a busy Saturday lunchtime as it's tucked away behind another cafe.

Second time we have been here and would return again and again! Love the quirkiness of this place and there is always something that grabs your attention. Constantly good coffee and the food is also worth mentioning, vegetable chilli nachos were amazing - unfortunately they were my husbands and he doesn't share but I managed to snaffle a few and...
