Took some friends for late breakfast. The entire place, cutlery, tea cups needs cleaning and updating. My breakfast was not great manly because my waiter could not take simple instructions. My friends avocado was so brown it could not be eaten when mentioned to staff they said that's how we serve it! Really? This place used to be legendary and... More

First time visit to the Polly Tea Rooms. I was very impressed with the wide selection of fresh cakes available and it was incredibly hard to choose. I finally chose the Coffee and Walnut came which was delicious. Would highly recommend it to anyone. They must have a very talented baker.

Really enjoyed our visit to Polly Tea Rooms today - excellent coffee and massive range of cakes - I am sure some of the eclairs were a foot long!!

Went with my children as they'd never been before. They couldn't believe the size of the cakes!! My daughter who's the size of a matchstick finished all hers after several rests and my son took the rest of his home. Lovely hot chocolate marshmallows and whipped cream and an large café latte for me. Yes a bit expensive but for... More

Great place with real charm. Our blonde waitress was a delight with a great smile. We both had all day breakfast - it was superb. With a nice pot of tea, white table cloths we happily enjoyed a couple of hours surrounded by beautiful cakes.

You will be spoilt for chose in the polly tea room. What a variety of cakes to choose from. They don't give small slices either. Top up for coffee if need or lovely pots of tea with plenty of hot water to top up.

The food and cakes are seriously good and not too badly priced. The service however has always been poor with forgotten items and slow delivery. The servers are all young girls but it could be better

We've been using The Polly for over 30 years now and even though we don't live in the area, we return regularly. We recently diverted off the M4 and popped in for lunch on our way to the West Country and boy what a treat ! Yes, the place looks a bit dowdy from the outside but inside it's full... More

Delightful as always. Efficient discreet service even though the tearooms were very busy as all the world seemed to have descended on Marlborough last Sunday!!!! The tea pot came first and then the large warm scones with jam and cream. Perfect. Queuing to wait for a table firstly and to pay later but shows how popular these tearooms always are.

Stopped at Pollys as a surprise for your anniversary weekend and I can only highly recommend a visit. The team are very friendly and accommodating, and the food is good. We had the high tea for 2 at £32.95. The sandwich selection was ham and mustard, which had way too much butter on, coronation chicken, smoked salmon, cucumber and egg... More
