Saw this on tripadvisor and decided to give it a try on our way to Salisbury, we wern't dissapointed as it was spot on! Swift service and local fresh produce, nice friendly people and reasonably priced.
Excellent venue, relaxed yet trendy! Attracts dog walkers, locals, families etc and is really lovely and relaxed. I’ve visited a few times during brunch / lunch time and have loved it every time. There’s also vegetarian and vegan options, as well as dairy-free milk alternatives....More
Stopped for brunch after seeing good reviews. The menu had with a varied and interesting selection from pastries, sourdough toast, eggs to full English. Coffee was excellent - so good we'll return next time we are in the area.
Lovely venue for my husband's surprise 50th party in the Club room. Great party atmosphere - tables were set out perfectly, the sofas were a big hit with the younger party-goers and with it's own bar-perfect. We had lots of comments on the night about...More

I’ve left my reply to your comments before and on Facebook, as you are reviewing us there as well! If you recall Fran I am the owner and I was sitting next to you. Just to be clear, we do take every review seriously and we implement changes where we think they will benefit the business and make the visit more enjoyable for customers. But equally I’m a great believer in correcting feedback, there’s a real danger that we’ve all become super critical and consider ourselves review experts and not valuing what goes into running a service industry business and the people it employs. I value your points and as a result we are trialing some changes to how we manage evening service. Evening service is now as popular as day service, which is great but as we cook fresh, items do run out and it’s good food, not fast food. But your point is valid. Just to correct you on a few points, I did try and get you some ginger ale (but no mention of this), sadly we can’t keep a second bottle of every bottle of the 22 Gins we stock, that would be a £1000 sitting on the shelf, impossible for a small business. The dog was after service had finished and so for us this was not an issue. The kids running the place, as you state, will be pleased as they are 28 and 29 and one our evening manager, we had 6 staff on. With all the reviews we ask people to come and say hi, leave us feedback on the night, so we are afforded the opportunity to put it right or recompense you. I’m the first to engage with feedback, that’s why we have feedback cards on the table. I’m pleased that the majority of people get what we are about, so it feels we are going in right direction, but we’re always learning. We are a not a chain cafe/restaurant, we are local people with a passion for good food and we want to bring that to Cricklade and to people who value this service. All points noted and where agreed will be implemented. Thanks Fran, do pop in again and see the changes.
