Been here a number of time for breakfast and I have been introduced to some dishes that I have never tried before. Whilst the sausages, bacon and eggs are all sourced locally from highly regarded farms and the bread is made on the premises (as are the sausage rolls, cakes and a large range of other items) it is the...

A cold Marlow rebellion blonde beer and amazing home made burger were a perfect treat after a nice long dog walk around the lakes . Lovely staff and setting , food very reasonable and when they realised that they had forgot to put cheese on our burger they quickly bought the money back to refund . Highly recommend . Great...

I recently hired the studio for a surprise party for my boyfriend's 30th and he (and all 40 of the guests) absolutely loved it! We had exclusive use of the studio and the balcony outside once the cafe closed and it was perfect for 40 guests. I went for the bbq menu so, of course, it rained but we had... More

Me and my partner decided to order some food from the cafe and the food was sourced locally and sustainably which was pleasant. However, upon ordering I was given a table tracker and went to sit at a table which had no visible table tracker pad, which I did not think was a problem as other cafe's put pads underneath... More

Hello Thank you for your feedback, we can appreciate that this must have been frustrating. From our point of view it is also frustrating as we have just installed this very costly tracker system and on the same day it was installed the Council placed two new tables next to the café. These are the only two tables that aren't... More

Been here lots of times after, a lovely walk round the aquadrome nature reserve or the fabulous canals, usual very pleasant and relaxing. Today went for breakfast. What a painful mistake, great if you want to start your Sunday with a headache. Sat at a table in the cafe while my husband ordered. Couldn't quiet believe the music was so... More

Great coffee but gets really busy especially at weekends. Have a walk around the lakes and then go into the cafe for coffee. Food is top quality but you may have to wait!!

We do appreciate that it can get busy and we are always looking at different ways to manage these busy times. We are grateful to be so busy but we are very aware that it's our issue and shouldn't be that of our customer's. Our new kitchen renovation is really helping to improve our food waiting times.

Went to the Cafe in the Park on a sunny summers Saturday. Great relaxed atmosphere and obviously popular with locals with a large queue of hungry diners. I ordered the lunchtime special a "flash Steak" the dish comprised of giant yellow cous cous, olive tapenade and strips of succulent steak. The meal was well thought out with a range of... More

Excellent coffee, quiet room if you want to escape the crowds, friendly staff and "home made" food. Very popular and lots of children.

I have always wanted to check out this place. Really good location with the lake right outside, so I did. The staff are very friendly which I think is very rare to see nowadays which makes it such a shame when the food came out. Me and a friend ordered burgers to share which was very dry but was presented... More

Really sorry to hear that you felt your burgers were dry, I'm really surprised to hear that but I absolutely agree they shouldn't be and please do let us know should that ever happen again.
