“Lovely!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The only reason I have given this a 4 and not a 5 is the seating - if you go at peak time on the weekend you can really struggle to find a seat, especially if there is more than 2 of you!
The food is always quick and of high quality, and not too badly priced.
The staff are always helpful and welcoming!

“Lovely lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

My mother-in-law and I had a lovely lunch today at Allington Farm Shop Cafe.
We arrived at peak time 12:30ish and were lucky to get a table. The food was brought to our table very promptly seeing as it was such a busy time of day. The portions are very generous and the was food delicious.
The only thing I would mention (if I'm picking holes) is the menu could be set out a bit better, it needs to be 'spaced out' a bit better and more easy on the eye. Only because there is just SO much choice, I didn't know where to look first!
But having said that we can't wait to go back again. Thank you.

“Great cafe, excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

A friend and I visited allington café for the first time recently and were pleased to find a café with such great service and high quality food.
We came for lunch and although the café was very busy, we found a table straight away. The drinks and food arrived very swiftly and we both thought the food tasted great. I had a lamb and mushroom pasty with vegetables which was absolutely delicious.
We were told by a waitress that all the food AND the cakes on display were homemade on the premises. Its very difficult to find somewhere in chippenham with such a wide variety of cake that is all homemade so were very impressed.

Overall my friend and I would thoroughly recommend Allington Café to all our friends and will definatley be returning soon.

“Good choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

For a farm shop cafe the choices were very good. If ordering breakfasts with little children they are willing to alter the food choices to suit.

“Reasonable not memorable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Had lunch here with a friend, it can be difficult to find a table if you order first, best to find somewhere to sit before you order, this can be a bit tricky if you both want to chose something from the cake selection unless you trust your friend to do it. As with most places at the moment the trend seems to be charge a bit more for a bit less, I am not sure this works in any climate, the lunch we had was reasonable not memorable, the cafe can be a bit noisey during the busy times not great if you want to chat, however the farm shop is very much worth a visit with a wide selection of local produce.
