We were taken today to a the superb Drawing Room, first visit and will not be our last.
The food and service are superb and if you are in Retford do yourself a favour and call in, if you can get a table you will not be disappointed.

My Mother and I often visit here and our trip is always pleasant. We are greeted by polite staff and always served the very best food which is good quality for the price. The only negative point I would say about The Drawing Room is service is sometimes very slow.

The Drawing Room offers a lovely retreat sitting over the Market Square, adorned in real table cloths and the finishing touches of a former age. A quintessential place for afternoon tea, the food offered is generally of good quality and may be the environment makes it conducive to the production of decent soups and light meals. However, it is the combination of interior, nice staff and location that makes The Drawing Room a memorable experience.

I've been going to this cafe for about three years and have taken several friends there for lunch or coffee. It's above a jeweller's, with a view across Retford market square. The decor is old-fashioned, but in a good way, and the food has always been excellent. On this occasion, I went for breakfast. The ingredients were very good and I enjoyed it. They serve tinned tomatoes as a matter of course (which I think is a bit downmarket) but will do fresh grilled tomatoes if you remember to ask. Filter coffee refills are offered; unlike many places, they don't wait for you to ask but come up and refill your cup proactively, which is nice. The prices aren't cheap but the food is worth the modest price premium.
