Great place for lunch

Visited with my wife for lunch. Great service and a variety of food to choose from. Had the soup of the day which was awesome. Really liked this location, feels very traditional yet enjoyable. I would visit again.

Went off the cuff for lunch. We had lovely food. A good selection. Great coffee. The decor was lovely. The staff were excellent. Very polite and efficient.

We were unable to book a table in our preferred room as bookings are not taken and declined the table near the loo and till. Downstairs was less elegant but ok. The sandwiches were dry and there was no choice of cakes. The ones on display looked far more tempting than our selection. I had been looking forward to this... More

This is an attractive town centre option for breakfast lunch or afternoon tea-the staff are very friendly and attentive and the menu options are interesting and often have some good specials. I am a fan of the breakfast sandwich and the salads. Also they have an excellent range of teas and other drinks. Finally it has always been clean and... More

Ordered a teacake plus a brie and bacon panini. Teacake arrived but no panini which arrived after we chased up the order 20 minutes later and it was cold. The waiter lied saying it was hot as it had just come from the kitchen when it had obviously been waiting around. We got our money back and left; will not... More

Dear ChrisG (Firstly for those reading this and for clarity, this was the Riverside venue and not the Tea Rooms in the High Street, but as owner of both venues it is no comfort to me that either of my venues slip in their service standards) I had been made aware of the situation prior to reading your tripadvisor report....

Cafe is in a lovely location by the river but the management and staff seem to have been ill on the day they had the hospitality course.

I visited with friends and my 4 year old daughter on Saturday 27th June. It was fairly busy when we arrived but we were shown to a table.

I discovered Mr Miles a month or so ago and have been won over by extremely polite staff, an extensive selection of coffees and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Most recently, I visited to try the coffee of the week (a smooth Nicaraguan number!) and to try a sweet treat from the new menu... I went for the summer pavlova. Bliss!... More

There is something very British about cream teas server outside on a hot sunny day by very well spoken friendly .staff. This you find here. You can sit inside or outside and watch the day go by. Strongly recommended.
