Cosy and just off the promenade

Had a very pleasant fish meal followed by an excellent espresso. Service OK but can be slow when busy.

Marples is the type of cafe where you get good service good quality - comfort, a relaxed atmosphere and all within walking distance of the sea front. We went for breakfast and found our choices came exactly as requested even down to the extra crisp bacon on the side. The quality of food is excellent - quantity is good presentation... More

Came here for lunch with a friend and was very impressed. They have quite an extensive lunch time menu, I opted for lasagne which was delicious, they also have a huge selection of lovely looking cakes but unfortunately as the portions are quite large there was just no room, although they also do a take-out service. It's a little gem... More

We booked a table for 5 adults and 2 young children on a Saturday lunch time. We were promptly taken to our table and was pleasantly surprised at the varied choice on offer on the menu. We all ordered a mixture of hots meals, sandwiches and salads. Everything came out together without too long a wait. I cast an envious... More

Fish n' chips was spoil't by the fact that we were not asked by the staff at any time during the meal if 'everything was all right with it' hence we raised our concerns after the meal. In this case the quality of the chips was quite poor, which we reported and was offered an apology only. We consider the... More

Sea View St is little gem in Cleethorpes with a range of independent shops, pubs and cafes. Marples is the cafe we chose to take our frends from Melbourne for a mid-week lunch, which was very plesent. Just sandwiches and tea all round with good service, which our friends enjoyed. To be fair we have heard mixed experiences from local... More

We went into Marples looking for an early-evening cup of coffee, but the menu caught our eye and we decided to eat there. I had a beef in wine sauce hotpot, which was absolutely excellent; the beef was very tender. It was served with a dish of vegetables which included cabbage, leeks and carrots, and they too were very well... More

Just popped in for a sandwich, but the cakes looked gorgeous. Didn't see any home made scones but the cheesecake looked amazing. The sandwich (tuna and mayo) and panini (tuna and mayo) were both lovely. The staff were all polite and lively which does make a pleasant change.

The new refurbished restaurant is really nice, comfy seats and lovey booths. The cakes are divine, all homemade. Good menu which caters for all tastes. Service with a smile
