Marks & Spencer food is not cheap but then it is of a high enough quality to command the price - just, the staff in the café work very hard to give fantastic service and when it gets busy the call in staff from all over the store to help keep the tables clean for the next customer, whilst you...

Went for a coffee break whilst with my husband. Coffee was awful, very bitter, tea was too strong as she made this before the coffee. Service wasn't with a smile, good job we don't come into the city often!

To find a human hair in your sandwich, halfway through eating it is revolting! I returned it and was given a refund but by the time I got back to my table, my drink had gone cold, so no food, (couldn't have eaten anything else after the discovery anyway!) no drink, the noise in the cafe was ridiculous, like being...

We dropped in here for a cuppa and as always it was decent. The service at the check out was good. However, we struggled to get a table as most were blocked by people waiting for their partner to paid for their drinks. Please try and do something about this like assigning tables as people pay.

After an afternoon wandering around the Arndale, my wife and I started to get hungry and really didn't want to have the typical mall fare. We stumbled into the cafe and being from the US, were quite shocked with the choice/quality of the food at a department store. We both had the leek and chicken pie and again we're completely...

I took my 5 year old granddaughter shopping in M&S Market Street. She then decided she was hungry so up to the cafe we went. It's now 12:35 on a Wednesday. When deciding what to eat I was taken aback to see there were no children's sandwiches left. Checking the rest of the display I was aware of another Nanna... More

As always Marks & Spencer's never fails to deliver on there food as I've eaten in different ones over the years and always lovely and tastey. Only slight down side in this one but it was a Saturday very noicey and busy. But food came quick as had a lovely chicken, fatal, seed salad. 😀

We often visit M & S on Market Street and decided to try the light lunches that they do. We had the chunky chicken curry with a jacket spud and side salad. The chicken melted in the mouth and the spuds fluffy. We are not keen on lettuce, leaves etc but it came with a lovely salad dressing and yes... More

This is located on the first floor of the store. It is quite large with plenty of seats and is nice and bright. We had sandwiches and one of us a cup of tea, but the set up was odd, having to leave the queue to get hot drinks and then rejoin to pay. The lemon muffins were very nice... More

Decent enough store - I do find things are a bit here n there inside though. Had a snack downstairs at the food on the move place located in food hall. Good choice snacks and drinks and you can buy from the food hall and eat at the tables. Not as plush as the actual coffee shop but much better... More
