1st) don't go. 2nd) Iv seen it from passing for years and thought it looked a magical little quintessential English tea room. So one Sunday morning of we went, sat outside with the smell of fag ends and drains. All tables and chairs are broken and dirty in some way. The tea was one of the worst Iv tasted and... More

Been here a few times the breakfast is nice and relaxing atmosphere. I feel a revamp of the menu and some new dishes would be great to keep up with the many restaurants that are located in Didsbury. Always seem to be a high staff turnover which may be why some complain about staff but u think that's because they... More

I don't normally write reviews but after the rude service me and my family received i thought it deserved one. We went to Saint and Scholars on a recommendation on the food which i agree was good (not fantastic for the price, but it was edible.) The girls that were working were all very nice and polite but the manager... More

I visited yesterday with friends for Sunday lunch and was not disappointed. I had the beef which was so tender! In so many places, the veg can be overdone but here it was done to perfection with just the right amount of crunch! At a very reasonable 8.95 I was a happy girl! The staff were great, very friendly. I... More

We called for Sunday Brunch with our granddaughter, including pram, and were offered a table which seated 5 to allow for the pram. The service was very efficient with all members of staff working as a unit, the food was excellent value for money and good quality. The restaurant is very busy which reflects the level of customer satisfaction experienced... More

I pop in here once a monrh at least. Great full english at a good price, and good coffee. The outside seating is always popular when the sun is out.

The food that we had at Saints and Scholars was superb. Although is was a tad expensive. Saying that though, the layout of the resturant and atmosphere felt very homely and the service was excellent.
