busy cafe, adequate food for what you pay, only go if your expectations are not to high and you don't mind basic quality food, not a bad breakfast, staff behind the counter seamed happy and friendly enough although the woman clearing the tables didn't look to happy or approachable,

Been going for over 20 years, atmosphere is very relaxing and food is very good quality, even with the cheap prices! Great with a family of up to 1-8, there are 3 tables that have 8 seats. Tables without chairs for people with a disability, a table with 1 chair and a gap for a disability wheelchair, the rest have... More

We had lunch here, it is a large restaurant and pretty basic. You put your order in and watch out for your ticket number, then collect the food. It was good value for a quick lunch and the staff were pleasant. It was busy and seems very popular.

Was very busy when we visited so sat at a table that hadn't been cleared. This was quickly rectified however. Food was what I expected from the way the place looked, most things deep fried. Sandwiches offered were the selection you'd expect and looked well filled and decent. Tea was good. Dining area itself was looking very tired but added... More

Visited this cafe Sunday lunch in June 2014. No frills but excellent value for money. Reminds me of a transport cafe with great sandwich's and a fab cup of tea. Full of local folk with a tale to tell.

I used to go to this cafe with my parents when I was a child and that was many years ago. It has found memory's of nice everyday food made there and then with people that care and take an interest in their customers. I now take my children there and not the usual mass produced meals that get served... More

Having recently visited Hereford, we thought we would stop at this cafe for a bite to eat. On entering it we found someone walking around the cafe talking about her life story and how they needed to use 3000 minutes of mobile phone usage and how they were given some money. However, the cafe was quite clean and looked relatively... More

This is a good traditional cafe. The rolls are freshly made and taste delicious. I'm not a fan of drinking coffee in cafe as they never usually make them how I like them, but here at the Matabeau the coffee is just how i like coffee. The staff are always friendly and the tables are always cleared ready to sit... More
