Whilst in Brighton we stopped of at the Marwood for a coffee and mint tea. The place itself is really interesting with all sorts of artefacts everywhere, making it both interesting and quirky. We sat outside in the street which was just great for watching the people going about their business. At the back of the Marwood is a garden... More

Nice friendly place with quirky decor but good food and coffee! Friendly staff too. Music is just right...upbeat and funky. Enough seating with upstairs and room out the back too.

Been here a few times. Cake is lovely, drinks are good, the place itself is very funky but I sometimes find the staff a bit miserable & impatient. They also take quick long on your drinks sometimes. Overall, I do like this cafe and the decor is funny!

I kind of love this place, despite the fact that it's hygiene practices are, er, unconventional.....think dried on crud on your cutlery and hairy hippies sans any form of apron or hygiene wear (eventually) making your coffee and you've just about hit the mark. But you know what? Who cares?! It's a great atmosphere, the cakes are pretty good and... More

Came here for the first time yesterday and I just had to go again today. The staff are friendly, the cake is delicious and the coffee is easily up there with the best in Brighton. The whole place is very quirky but in a genuine and effortless way, you can feel how much the staff and owners have put part... More

They know their coffee, and a place that feels like home but doesn't look like it. Any chance you can bring back the eggs!?

I have to go to this cafe every time I'm in Brighton - it's so quirky, friendly and serves amazing coffee! The cake is also awesome - I had a fantastic fruit/fudge muffin recently!! Highly recommend this cafe.

My wife recently went to Ollies fish shack in the back garden and had some samples which she really liked. However..This Marwood itself recently scored 1 out of 5 for the Scores on the doors for food hygiene rating. Major improvement necessary. So officially dirty.
