Loved my fish and chips!

Stopped off for a light lunch but was tempted by the fish and chips. I was not disappointed - huge piece of fish in perfect batter + great chips and mushy peas. Delicious. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient, so no complaints about the service. We arrived bang in the middle of lunchtime... read more

Alougth I've heard great things about polly tearooms I can't say I was impressed. My partner and I went there for lunch found the service was poor and didn't enjoy our food. There was plenty of older people enjoying tea and cake so that probably is there best thing. Personally we wouldn't go back.

Loved the fresh specials menu. Glass of prosecco came perfectly chilled, the risotto with asparagus and the salmon were delicious and light. Best cappuccino in Marlborough for pud.

We had early afternoon tea and coffee on a lovely sunny day. The large windows made the room light and gave a summery atmosphere. The tea was served in a nice pot with plenty of hot water to add when needed. We had strawberries but there was a large range of cakes to tempt the appetite. Service was quick, friendly... More

I came here with my grandma, Mother, cousin and her small baby for lunch last week. The food was lovely and the place itself is very quaint and pretty. Service was a little slow but was fine as we were enjoying ourselves. Would recommend the open cheese and chutney sandwich. Cakes are also amazing!!!

I have used this cafe for years but my last two visits have been disappointing. They are expensive but try to justify this by saying they offer free refills of coffee. Today I was charged £6 for a coffee and a Pain au Chocolat. The price seems to keep rising but it has gone too far. On my last visit... More

Does this need another rave review? So good you have to queue to get a seat. Cakes to die for. Enough said.

Should it cost $20 (including tip) for two cups of coffee, two scones, two creams, and two small portions of strawberry jam? All items were good quality, coffee excellent but service was slow. Great ceiling beams!
