Quirky little cafe shop. Lovely coffee and lovely drinks with cakes and sandwiches for snacks. Always with a good book having coffee in the cafe. Worth the visit.

Good coffee and amazing atmosphere. Not a place for people looking for a "forced-to-be" nice cutmer service but a place where the staff is allowed to have a bad day and to show it, as real human beings. Only weak point in my opinion: a place like that should be slighty cheaper.

Expensive latte served lukewarm in what appeared to be a large thimble. As a fading sign on the wall indicates this cafe was at some point a record shop. It now appears to be a hangout for people who pretend to collect records, the sanctimonious right-on Brighton set. The ironic charity shop "art" hung against the deliberately garish wallpaper is...

I wanted to like the place, it's appears artistic, independent, and plays good music. BUT like art environments can be, it suffers from a stroppy punk attitude that reflects as churlishly rude customer service. No forced smiles in here, an attitude I agree with, however when the coffee lets you down on quality with an expensive unfrothy £2.80 cappuccino, this... More

Great for an excellent coffee and cake. Soup good too, often pop in after a shopping trip or wander around the lanes. A hidden gem

Unfortunately this coffee shop gets a thumbs down from me. If you want a cosy atmosphere and somewhere to chat and catch up then don't come here. The music is always too loud and one has to shout above the music to be heard. Having asked the fella who served me if he could turn the music down a little... More

Marwood is a likeable, friendly place that seems to always be full. I have been a few times, and am always charmed by it. The décor is quirky and there are always wonderful things to discover - I am a particular fan of the A-Team wallpaper in the gents' The first time I came, their poster advertised "kicking coffee and...

What can I say it's epically quirky... In good taste of course... The coffee is fab and the cheese pesto and spinach muffin rules :) Customer service here has always been friendly and warming... This is the coffee stop for every Brighton visit

We first visited The Marwood in September 2013 for breakfast and loved it, so when we booked another visit to Brighton we knew we wanted to visit again. We were disappointed to discover that The Marwood no longer offers breakfast, but there was a wide variety of cakes and pastries on offer so we were able to find something we... More

It is unusual for me to bother to write a review but the rudeness and attitude of the staff is so dreadful I was inspired to feed this back. Didn't acknowledge my arrival, no please or thank you throughout the transaction, chatting between themselves. I actually felt very uncomfortable. Awful experience. You are a coffee shop get over yourselves this... More
