It was my first time in Marples on Saturday and the experience did not disappoint. Although the cafe was very busy, myself and my mum were seated in no more than five minutes and provided with drinks not long after. We both ordered the steak ciabattas and they were delicious. The chips and onion rings were clearly homemade and they... More

Nice surroundings, we have been here during the day and have had the breakfasts which were very good and it is a lovely coffee shop. However, we tried it for the first time in the evening and we were very disappointed. Both steaks were very chewy and the beef stroganoff was just ok. The service was efficient, if not overtly...

Hello, since reading your review I have spoken with my colleagues working on the day you visited Marples. The waitress you mention in your review tried to accommodate your party as well as she could, given you were a party of 8, and we only had a table for 4 and a couple of tables for 2 the other side...

My husband and I went for breakfast and it did not disappoint. Staff were friendly, polite and welcoming. We opted for the Full English and i'm so glad we did, It was delicious. Very fresh and well cooked. There's a warm atmosphere to this place and will certainly be coming back for more.

Myself and a friend dropped in here this week for a spot of lunch, the service was prompt and polite. The food was of a great standard and it was refreshing to see gluten free options. Will recommend and will definitely return! :)

My husband and I dined here three times on our recent visit to Cleethorpes. The food was excellent and the atmosphere lovely. We had great service each time. While the menu boasts an excellent variety of dishes, we were told that the chef specializes in seafood dishes. I ordered halibut with a balsamic reduction on a bed of roasted vegetables... More
