I visited Polly's yesterday with my sister in laws and niece after a lovely afternoon shopping in Marlborough. I have wanted to visit for some time as it always had a very good reputation. Unfortuantely i found it very disappointing as did the rest of my party. We had a short wait for a table which wasn't a problem, we... More

Nice coffee and tea and excellent snacks but definitely not cheap but if you want quality snacks and goodies you pay a bit extra.. :)

Wonderful place for tea & scones, sandwiches. Enjoy watching people bustle about as you sit in a charming tea room with attentive service and tasty food.

There are plenty of restaurants in Marlborough High Street as well as the usual chain coffee shops. If you want something different go to the Polly Tea Rooms. They are a local traditional institution where you will be served by staff in smart black uniforms who are very polite (in keeping with the clientelle). I don't think they are open... More

Had the Welsh rarebit and a slice of Victoria sponge. Everything was delicious, service was friendly and efficient. Left full and satisfied. Will be back next time we are in Marlborough.

We visited today and asked for a table for six and were surprised at how large it was inside and to be taken through to a table that was just right for us. The young lady who served us was very polite and attentive and made us welcome. I did have a couple of issues one of which is regarding... More

We pop in now and then and have noticed improvements since new owners took over. Badley needed a lick of paint and new artwork and a spruce up in the toilets. Food is now more up to date eg the open sandwiches with parsnip crisps - very tasty and a large portion. The cakes look better than they are, but... More

Been here for breakfast a few times and it is always good, and at £7.95 for a full English, with good quality bangers and home made hash brown, it represents good value for money. The service is very friendly, especially the girl taking payment on the till by the front door and the waitress, whose name I don't know, who... More

We called into Marlborough for breakfast and after a long journey. We had a beautiful breakfast with a steady supply with tea. We will definitely be calling in again.
