I used to like the Foxlowe but the last few visits have been extremely disappointing. Watery tasteless soup of the day, stale and lifeless bread. Weak and cheap tea. Staff were more than happy to refund or replace but needs an urgent reviewing of the...More

We had a lovely lunch in this central cafe-service was a little slow and menu is somewhat limited but still tasty and good value. It has an interesting gallery upstairs and has lots of space for functions and parties. A lovely little town to visit!

Simple food, friendly staff, nice atmosphere and great prices. The antithesis of a Costa/Neros/Starbucks , the most relaxing and grounded venue for coffee and cake in Leek.

Had lunch here with a few friends. We all had the root vegetable soup which was rather bland. It was served with two very tiny pieces of bread. Service was good if a little slow when ordering at the counter.

Relaxing coffee area with variety of seating in spacious light area, and WiFi. Drinks ordered were good but cakes FIVE STAR. The coffee area itself was clean and attractive: toilets and passage to them grubby hence four stars rather than five.

Dropped in to the Foxlowe for coffees. Thank goodness we only ordered regular ones as they were huge. We enquired what large coffees looked like and apparently the cups come with two handles so that you can lift them,- must be a caffeine overload! Anyway,...More
