This tea room has been here for so long now but it still retains a certain charm about. Generally the quality of the food is very good, as is the service. Ideal for afternoon tea.

Despite having to queue owing to Marlborough being very busy due to the jazz festival, we were seated within five minutes & served within three. We had only popped in for a coffee but the array of pastries on view persuaded us to try an almond croissant & a Florentine. Both Excellent as was the coffee. I believe this tearoom... More

The staff were lovely and the place is nicely decorated. We reserved a table (for which they charged us a tenner deposit) for a group of us to meet up for breakfast before a walk in the local area. Most of us got the small breakfast with extra black pudding as that wasn't included in the small. Maybe it was... More

We happened upon Polly's Tea Room a week ago when we were returning to our friend's home in Winchester from N. Wales. The 4 of us were starving - ready for a good meal and cup of tea, we spotted Polly's so made that our meal stop. We were all very pleased with the delicious meals we were served, the... More

Popped into Polly's for lunch to get out of the rain. The tomato and basil soup was hot and delicious, the BLT was good too. Decent size latte. Service was slow but it was peak lunch time. Lovely small tables with white table linen. Amazing cakes.

There is a decent selection of cakes, the two we had were very good, fresh and moist. It is fun that you serve yourself, cutting your own slice, how big do you cut...? The service was friendly with a smile and helpful. The only downside I would say was the temperature, it was hot in the tea rooms.

Homemade cake (?) was awful. Hard from lying out and dry. When asked about cake we gave honest opinion, were told manager would talk with us, no one came so we left, never to return.

I wish I had taken a picture of our food today as it looked nothing like some of the lovely dishes people have pics of! Goats cheese salad = Stale bread, no salad dressing, grilled on one side cheap goats cheese and very limp lettuce. Fish and chips smelt of stale oil and my teenager who eats everything couldn't eat... More
