Lovely

Me and my partner love this little cafe, the two ladies who own it are always friendly, they usually recognise us and ask how we are :) food is a bit pricey but they give you a good plate full! I love the big pot of tea you get :) lovely homely little place, worth a visit x

First visited Hartley's a few weeks ago. The tea is decent and the cafe itself seemed adequate but the owner is unfriendly. She seemed so concerned with doing things her way that it has a negative effect on the atmosphere. I approached the counter, not realising that it was a waitress service and I was marched over to a table.I... More

I used this café for a lunch while I was on day release at college. It advertised an all day breakfast. When I entered I was advised it was all cooked fresh. I was served so quickly it was obviously not cooked fresh. The bacon, sausage & black pudding was warmed up. The tomato was not cooked it was just... More

We have visited Hartley's for several years now. Two lovely ladies and their staff, who always make us more than welcome. Whether it be for a Saturday morning breakfast, or our annual treat of an evening Christmas Dinner (slacken your belt for this one). On booking this 3 course meal upon request I was provided with a very substantial cheese... More

Great british breakfast at a very decent price (lower than a fiver) - good tasting bacon, rather ordinary sausages (that seems to be the norm and so I mostly gloss over the fact that it irritates me, the cooking was good so that lifted the ordinary slightly).
