We ate there one Sunday morning having seen it previously on a trip in the summer. Luckily we got the last table and enjoyed a quality breakfast. Service was a little slow but the food was freshly cooked. We have since booked for lunch.

The atmosphere was great and the staff very friendly, but most of all the food was excellent at very reasonable prices. Will be back soon.

Popped in last week on an afternoon just for a cappuccino and a bit of cake. It wasn't busy but the table next to us complained noone had been to take their order, then she asked if we'd ordered. None of the staff seemed to know who was doing what. Another table were asked for their order but they only... More

Firstly i'd like to respond to the title of your review, the waitresses at Marples are neither lazy or confused. We have only last week started to offer the Seasonal Hot Drinks Selection and now have a small menu on each table as it was clear to me that customers where not seeing the chalk board notice on the Bar,...

Wife and I visited on a Saturday evening in September. We'd booked in advance, and as we booked for 7pm we received a free carafe of wine. The only slight disappointment was the amount of time we had to wait to be asked if we wanted drinks. We also had to ask about "Specials", rather staff telling us what they... More

Always my first choice when going for lunch. To reserve a table, its quite simple, ring ahead or take the chance of being disappointed. I always ring ahead whether it be days or hours before and have always managed to reserve a table. Service is fast and efficient and in respect of having to turn custom away, this speaks volumes...

I had a similar experience to Lisa S. I went to Marples with my mum and a friend and was told that there were no tables available and there was at least 2 people waiting for the next tables to be free. Not wanting to wait around and then be rushed through our time there, we left and went to... More

Sorry we was unable to seat you when you visited Marples. However as i have stated in my response to Lisa and as you have stated in your review, anyone is welcome to reserve a table to avoid disappointment. Also we wouldn't rush our customers through their visit, not too sure what you mean by that comment. More

Not one for writing reviews, but it would seem that having had second poor customer experience at the now seemingly "exclusive" Marples, I had to express my disgust. It would seem that unless you are part of the Marples scene you will not be able to have a table. Reserved signs on 50% of unoccupied tables and even the owner... More

i'm sorry you was not able to be seated at Marples. i'm assuming it was a Saturday when you came in as we are always very busy on a Saturday morning for breakfast . We do take reservations for tables and we do have a lot of regular customers but we always try our best to seat everyone that walks... More

Appeared very disorganized..... had to wait a very long time in between courses..got quite fed up with this. Staff need specific role and areas. Having said this the main course was fine....but the fruit tart was bland....

thank you for your review of Marples. Not sure on what day or time of day you came in to eat here. But i would like to say, our waiting team do have specific areas to work in during busy times and we have a good level of organisation, it is unfortunate that you maybe had to wait a short... More
