“Lovely little cafe - great for parents”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

I am always stopping for a quick coffee and a spot of lunch when I'm in town.

Perfect for mothers too, plenty of highchairs and large spaces for pushchairs. Also the baby changing rooms are great.

Food nice and the staff are always polite and well mannered.

“Good food, lovely coffees but hard to find a seat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Great service asis expected at M&S, also lovely food and coffees. jacket potatoes come with a lovely side salad and dressing. The only problem is that it is so popular and far too small. Its a struggle to get seated and there are often people hovering over tables waiting to pounce!

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Arrived about 1.30 for a light lunch. Most things seemed to have finished even the baked potatoes. Very few staff and a long, slow queue at the till only to find that the food I wanted was unavailable. Would not bother again.

“Good Reliableedibles reasonable coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

There's a good selection of food, hot and cold and some very drinkable coffee. The staff are as a rule excellently trained and are very friendly with and helpful to Old Ladies in Particular. There is 1 big flaw in their provision and that is White Sandwiches. They are just the same as Sainsbury's, Tesco's, Morrisons. Loads of Brown sandwiches. THERE ARE PEOPLE AT LARGE WHO, CAN NOT EAT A BROWN SANDWICH WHICH HAVING TO RUN TO THE TOILET AND TAKE A HUGE AMOUNT OF TIME WITH OVERACTIVE BOWEL MOVMENTS.
Brown is NOT always heathy so lets start having some more imagination put into fillings for White sandwiches. Its a very real problem.
