Good snacks and meals

Nice and clean with a useful range of snacks and meals. Cheerful staff and comfortable enough for purpose.

I have visited Waitrose Cafe, many times now. The coffee is always top notch, as are the cakes. The staff are always helpful. One small criticism, they often run out of cakes and trays. Having said that, I am never disappointed there and if passing always pop in.

Took our 2 year old little Grandson for some lunch yesterday in W/Cafe about 12.30 fairly quiet . I know he'd eat sausages and a few chips but he was refused chips as on the children's menu it came with mash potato and beans which I know he wouldn't eat so thought a few chips instead would be straight forward...

Unlike other supermarket cafes I visit, the Waitrose menu is limited. Its perfect if you want a naughty cake and a cuppa but not ideal if you are hungry and after a decent lunch. The staff are friendly and efficient and the cafe was busy on the two occasions we visited with about a 10 min wait to be served.... More

If you have a Waitrose card you get free coffee or tea and some really nice tasty snacks and cakes, the place is full every time I have been there. Self service so you might have to clear your own table when busy, still good valve for money.

We had been sta young at local Travelodge found Waitrose and the cafe. Very helpful assistants in the morning a bit fussy in the evening. Helped us sign up for a Waitrose card so enjoyed the free drinks excellent quality but short of seating.

My partner and I used to use this Cafe almost weekly. We were attracted by the free coffee and as I'm sure Waitrose expect, we always ended up eating as well. We almost always had a panini each and a cake of some sort and very often did some shopping after. The only major problem and the reason we don't... More

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
