Enjoyed a lovely cooked Jacket potato with cheese + beans and a large cappuccino for a very reasonable price. Staff were great and served with a smile from start to finish. Highly recommend this Cafe!

Have visited Chandlers since it opened many years ago, never had a bad experience. Fabulous friendly staff, great food all freshly prepared and a good selection to choose from all reasonably priced. Still go back and always will.

The whole family have been visiting Chandlers for years. Its a great family run cafe with genuine freshly prepared ingredients - forget subway this place really knows how to make you that individual sandwich, ciabatta, baguette, panini etc. followed by a traditional Banbury cake and a lovely coffee
