“Pretty With Lovely Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Lovely atmosphere as soon as we walked in. Good menu but we only had tea and cake which was delightful. Only complaint we had to go up to the till to order and pay and then carry our food and drink to our table.

We are glad that you enjoyed the cream tea and you enjoyed your visit to us. During lunchtime hours we do offer waitress service 12pm - 2.30pm but outside of these hours we have found it better for customers to browse the cakes at the till point and order from the counter.

If you ever have any problems carrying your drinks or cakes we will be more than happy to assist you to your table.

Please do come back and visit for lunch because we have a fantastic menu.

“Interesting clocks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Worth an hours visit, variety of things to see, spent a long time watching the clocks, fascinating. We did not get there until quite late in the afternoon and the glass blowing had stopped, would consider going again to see this.

“A nice lunch spot.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

The central theme of the House of Marbles is revealed in its namesake: the several marble runs which grace the halls of this quirky museum make for an interesting watch The cafe offers a good selection of sandwiches and an excellent cream tea.
