“Oakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Very busy spot at lunchtimes, for takeaways or eat in. The cold beef sandwiches on granary, with English mustard are a must. Well worth a visit.

“Merrie England - Packhorse”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

Rude, obnoxious staff - take away sandwich thrown together and who I presume is the manager in the background just barks, no smile.

Very unpleasant experience, I wouldnt go again!

Staff need customer service training and much of it! And mystery shoppers to check their customer service levels by the HQ!

They have always been miserable but today was the icing on the cake!

“Always the Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Everytime I go to Merrie England I am treated to the best coffee, the best food and the best atmosphere. I grew up with Merrie England, a place to meet friends and feel relaxed and it still never disappoints !

“Real food made while you wait”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

What a refreshing change that there is still the Merrie England cafe's where food is made on site (even the cakes come from the small in house bakery at Oakes ) no collecting soggy plastic wrapped preservative stuffed junk from a shelf on the way in to be unwrapped by a surely teenager. The staff are welcoming and very efficiant and the food is very fresh and very tasty with generous portions. Even though it was very busy on my recent visit to Oakes with a long que I was at the counter in 5 min. It will be my cafe of choice the next time I am in Huddersfield.
