Fantastic food, friendly staff and under current conditions they’ve made great efforts to make things as safe as possible for everyone. I would encourage anyone who hasn’t tried their Sunday roast to go and do so. Ashford needs more places like this, it really is...a fantastic enterprise.More

Full English Breakfast for two this morning, beautifully cooked and served in a COVID safe way. Recommend for anyone who is fearing going out to eat. It’s safe and clean and the food standard as good as it ever was.

Lovely breakfast. Lovely walks for the kids. Went here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. What a treat it was. Breakfast was cooked fresh, none of this kept warm stuff. The sausage are extremely good, definitely not your bog standard ones, full of flavour and...meaty. Eggs perfectly cook and the mushrooms and bacon were fantastic too. Their coffee is also extremely good sod much so I had 2 large lattes 😊 The staff are very attentive and polite. Their hand hygiene is spot on. Hands washed after each customer is served and after they attended tables. Lovely atmosphere, plenty of room. Toys for the kids Well done guys. We’ll be back.More

Delicious and great range of vegan options :), even non-vegans enjoyed their foods as we consisted of meat-eaters, gluten-free people, two vegetarians trying Veganuary and a vegan. I had a lovely vegan cheese and tomato toastie. Only disappointment was no vegan cakes 😮. This would...add to the options and enable people trying Veganuary to have more options as well.More

Went on 2 Dec for the Christmas meal. Pre-booked. For £16.50 each it was amazing value and it couldn't be bettered! An upgrade to the carvery they do on Sundays this meal was generous with plenty of perfectly cooked vegetables and the roast potatoes were...excellent. Gravy tasty. All served hot with a smile. The honeycomb dessert option was huge! Coffee great, as ever. Well done everyone. That you can do this with such a small kitchen is amazing!More

Food is delicious and plentiful, location is lovely, and the staff are always so warm and friendly. A great place just for coffee and a chat as well as breakfast and lunches. It would be nice if the breakfast menu was available all day

Footprints is now one of our family favourites. The food is fresh, plentiful and really well presented by helpful, friendly staff. The burgers are the best and the ploughman's - especially with ham - is sensational. There's a great menu with so much to choose...from, as well as daily specials. There are lots of beverages too. Having eaten at Footprints many times this year and been delighted at the quality, quantity and cost of our meals. The one criticism of Footprints fare is the wine. I have tried red, white and rose but feel the quality did not match the food. Perhaps they could review this offering? There are lots of good and affordable wines on the market.More
