“Yummy, friendly, atmospheric cafe in old mill conversion.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

After evacuating a little chef on the A31 where one greasy waitress was the only member if staff doing all jobs, we lucked on this lovely place only one minute off the A31. I've never come across a cafe offerings Eggs Florentine - delicious. They catered to the exacting demands of my mum and kids who all wanted things that weren't quite on the menu. Food and drinks were all first class. The place is in a converted old mill and has a lively relaxed atmosphere. I would highly recommend it.

“Top Bacon Roll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Stopped in for a Coffee and Bacon Roll. Too cold to sit on the benches outside, but the decor inside is light and airy. Coffee (Medium-sized Dark Roast Latte) was good and much better than Cafe Nero across the road. Bacon Roll was great. Thick Smoked Bacon, well cooked and an interesting multi-grain Roll made it above the average. Will definitely return.

“Nothing special.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Menu average and service like most other cafe's - could they care less? Convenient location andf close to shops. Parking close by. Better sitting outside on warm days as inside is small.

Thnak you for taking the time to review the store. At Ringwood Boston Tea Party we try to ensure we deliver a variety of homemade, high quality food. The end of October sees our seasonal menu change where I'm sure there will be something to inspire everyone. I will be discussing your comments regarding service with my team to help us improve and continue training. Thank you.

“Promised much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

A Monday lunchtime, looked an inviting menu. The most delicious tuna melt toastie, made with tarragon and capers. But ... it could have done with a more imaginative garnish than a pile of tortilla chips. Perhaps some fresh, assorted salad leaves? Sadly I had cause to return my coffee which was barely warm. However, it was replaced swiftly, and the staff were friendly. The cakes looked lovely, but I didn't have time to try them. I would go back to this restaurant; I don't think this visit was typical, as there were a lot of customers coming through.

“Meh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

It is ok if you want average coffee and average food. Uninspiring food choice. Service without a smile.
