“Really enjoyed it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

Usually cafes annoy me when you have to queue and your food is cold by the time you sit down.however I was pleasantly surprised to see that the staff had a brilliant system of getting the queues down. The the food was hot and enjoyable. 10/10 well done

“nice for your nana.....Horwich middlebrook”

all the high standards you would expect from marks n sparks. Mainly 'older' visitors sometimes not enough tables and a feeling of being rushed but it's fine for a latte with your mum and nana

“Should not have changed the layout.”

Long queues, changed layout. Coffee not as good now that they use 'Fair Trade' Have started going to Costa instead. Not the same in there anymore with the high windows.

“Good Value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

The Cafe at M&S is a very busy place and luckily, I was able to get a seat right at the huge window overlooking a square. Though this is not a gourmet's paradise, the food was good and I enjoyed my tea with scones and clotted cream while watching people go by below in the square. The Cafe is clean, but very busy. It is self-service - so you have to take care navigating around with tea and other beverages. But it's a welcome break off one's feet and the food is just fine.
