I've been to Polly's Tea Room before and had a wonderful breakfast however this time was very disappointing. It was busy so we had to wait, that isn't an issue to be expected on a bank holiday weekend. However when we were seated it was on the smallest table in a corner opposite the toilet where all the flys seemed... More

It looked charming, but wasn't. Weak coffee, sickly sweet synthetic cake all at a vastly expensive cost. Nice staff, pretty room with fresh flowers and busy, so we thought it would be just the place for elevenses: it wasn't! Avoid

Three requests for these so tea was cold when sugar eventually arrived. This happened to a friend on a previous visit, Why??? Pleasant girls serving,shop very busy so girls a little flustered. Only complaint... More

We had stopped in the town en route home and thought it would be a special treat to visit Pollys Tea Rooms. I knew the place from old, it's been going for a few years! We were served by a friendly waitress, seated at a wobbly table (it always happens to us). We just wanted a cup of tea, the... More

We have gone a number of times to Pllys tea rooms but our last visit we felt a little disappointed . It's expensive for what you get . The decor in the shop needs to be uplifted . A good clean and especially the toilets . Very poor , old , dated , a little dirty and no glamour factor... More

After having a FIVE QUID grubby metal rip off pot of tea for two at The Cross Guns at Avoncliff near Bradford on Avon (reported on Trip Advisor), we were pleased to be served a pot of tea (good china) for two, plus two slices of beautiful toast with strawberry jam, butter and a slice of chocolate cake the size...

Any trip to Marlborough is not complete without a visit to The Polly Tearooms!! They really do have the best cake selection, and even if you have to stick to a gluten free diet like me, you are still catered for. A lovely old building, great staff and always a wonderful treat.

Decent food (large portions). Generally cooked well. Good selection of cakes and desserts some of which are delicious, some are average. Service can be very hectic if busy with waiting staff acting very flustered. Some items on order forgotten. Nonetheless a good tea or lunch stop.
