A cafe in a supermarket but it is waitrose! Popular and thus queues as free hot drink with their loyalty card and newspapers to read. Inevitably also purchase something else to eat with drink and is always of the usual waitrose good quality. Convenient and us rushed!

Waitrose card holders are entitled to a free drink, which means long queues and a shortage of seats due to many customers prematurely grabbing available seats before joining the queue. This is our one criticism.The food and drinks are good, cafe clean and staff lovely and very hard working. If only customers would queue properly, we would have given a... More

Unfortunately the kitchen facilities are limited and only bacon or sausage gaps were available as cooked, danish pastries and croissants, were available other than sandwiches. Coffee was good though.

I love visiting Waitrose and enjoy a drink and a snack. We were disappointed to be served Tuna Melts without the cheese melted, as though the staff had tried to limit the time it was put under the grill to get more done! Even more challenging was a tempting Greek salad which turned out to have a handful of uncut... More

We went in for a light supper meal after driving down 150 miles but discovered they only seem to do tea, coffee and light bites like cakes. There was a queue of people all wanting a free coffee with their Waitrose card which held things up. We won't be bothering again.

Popped in for a coffee Sunday morning with a friend - had to take my latte back to the counter as was only lukewarm at best - however I would say there was no problem and they brought a fresh one to my table within minutes. We both also had the "scone, cream, jam and fresh strawberries" snack which was... More

This is a lovely little coffee shop if you can use it. I shop very regularly at Waitrose and it would be lovely to take up the offer of a free coffee when shopping, but you can't because all those people in the queue are only wanting a free coffee to go and have not made any purchase. Free coffee... More

If you have a 'My Waitrose' card all Waitrose cafes are a must..... as a cup of coffee or tea is free! I'm a mocha coffee afficionado.. and theirs is good. Sadly.. so are their cakes..... A wicked treat if you're near one of these establishments

This cafe is good with good range of food and drink but the sitting area is a bit cramped and functional this store could do with enlarging this area with some comfy settees too
