The food is made and cooked to a very good quality. Highly recommend the chicken mulligatawny soup! However, at busier times around 1-2pm on a weekend, there is usually quite a good which can sometimes be confused as there are people every where trying to look at the sandwiches, crisps etc but also stood for tea and coffee.

I have visited quite a few M&S cafes and it always surprises me each time I go to the Willows that none of the staffs hair is tied back. Every other cafe I've been to they have their hair in a net....not a good look to have hair loose while dealing with food. Other than that food is the usual... More

Always nice food, clean and good friendly service. Has been and always will be busy alas - a victim of its own success. Came early - no problem. Had delicious pancakes with fruit and yoghurt and a cappuccino with the special M & S biscuit. Modern and bright.

Lovely cakes but the means of making coffee and drinks is incredibly slow for such a busy environment - seems to be a bit of a job creation scheme and staff are unable to multi task. Shame as lovely environment for a store cafe

Well, what a disappointment afternoon tea here is, the picture depicting your tea, will not be what you get! We got 2 small quarters of sandwiches, which were nice enough, and a hard fruit scone each, there were no small cakes or pastries as shown on the picture of afternoon tea outside the cafe.. I found it an awful lot... More

So, this is a department store cafe! Don't expect fine dining...but its products are great of course. Good choice of hot and cold foods sandwiches, cakes etc. It's self service and this is where you realise your in a cafe! Service is slow and queues are long. You selected your food and queue to order your drinks, that are made... More

We don't venture into M&S very often but after a wander around the store we decided to have coffee and a scone each. Husband queued while I went in search of a table in this rather large, rather noisy, first floor café. All is bright and clean, it's clearly a meeting place for shoppers, but while there is absolutely nothing... More
