Visited one Sunday lunchtime. Trade steady. Superb pork pie, sandwich and pastries. Coffees really good too. A wee bit expensive but food quality justified it. Some outside seating, though quite small inside and might get a bit cramped if busy. Nice view onto the square. Staff very pleasant. Nothing bad to report.

The first thing I'm going to mention is what rubbish regarding problems with families. There were several families with children, babies and infants when I visited and they were all made welcome... obviously the parents could cope and didn't expect the world to owe them something. The food, atmosphere was great. In addition this was indeed the best coffee I've... More

I've been to RRG many times and I return for the position overlooking the prettiest square in the east of England, and the really quite good coffee and the excellent tea. The cakes are good too. The sandwiches are.. erm, variable. The last one I had was full of gloopy stuff, more gloop than smoked mackerel, and not to be... More

We visit RRG on a Sinday morning. The person at the counter was rude and clearly annoyed that I had not read that they do not service breakfast on weekends. Why do they not serve breakfast on weekend? The cappuccinos were not real cappuccinos. Just milky weak coffee with a bit of foam on top. The bacon sandwiches were nice.... More

We had one of the best lattes here, not too milky but very rich and tasty. So our experience was fine but the couple at the next table were not so happy and complained that their tea was too strong. We can only take it as we found it and it was good, the service was excellent and the atmosphere... More

Good for a nice lunch in Bury. Situated near the Abbey Gardens and Cathedral. Good value for money but service a bit slow.

We sat outside this café on the most beautifully sunny day and had the best Espresso and Macchiato we've had for ages. Also the Brownie we shared was delicious.

Having moved to Bury St Edmunds a couple of years ago, we were delighted to have found such a great little coffee shop - lovely view and great coffee and cake. We visited a couple of months back and couldn't put a finger on what, but something was less good. Then a few weeks ago we returned and were less... More

Great location right on Angel Hill so you can people watch if you pop in on your own. There's good coffee and interesting tea selections, nice cakes and snacks. The decor is very pleasant, pine tables and check cloths and a non-chain feel. I usually come during the week as it's always packed on Saturdays. That's most likely because it's... More
