Great Coffee

Great coffee, friendly staff and a free biscotti every time. At christmas you even get a free shot of brandy or irish cream, you really can't complain!

When I walked in the staff were all sat around a table and looked at me like I was an inconvenience to their day! When one of them finally stood up to take my order they bluntly spoke to me. A different staff member was then walking around the cafe in her coat and sat outside where customers had literally... More

I have been in here regularly over the past few years, and I would say consistency and continuity make this place. The food is always as I would expect for a yummy café although a better cake selection would not go a miss as this isn't my favourite cake place. But for lunch it is somewhere I am always keen...

You know exactly what you are going to get when you visit. Excellent service and food with a brilliantly relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. I asked my grandchildren where shall we have lunch thinking they would want fast food and they both answered together DARCY'S. Excellent drinks and sandwiches, perfectly served. Also, I have seen them handle an error and they... More

Having travelled down from London I didn't have high expectations because similar places there aren't that good normally. However, this place was large, clean, plenty of tables, good prices and really good food. It was lunchtime on a hot day and place was busy, with people also sitting outside. The staff were friendly and accomodating. I needed a place to... More

Darcy's is just across from the pedestrianized shopping centre which is why we have not found it before. Very busy around lunchtime for good reason, a clean, friendly, happy and relaxed place for coffee or cakes, good sandwiches and toasties. Can't be faulted. Even their jacket potatoes looked as though they'd been baked not micro-waved (I'm not allowed them). Why... More
