I have been brought up with the high expectations that surround The Polly's reputation having lived near to Marlborough for many years. Finally three of us went for a cream tea. It was fine but sadly nothing special and if anything a bit expensive. I...More

What a disappointment. Offhand service and undrinkable cappuccino. ☕ If you are in need of an expertly made coffee I suggest that you avoid this much overrated Malborough tearoom. Polly's does not rate at all well when compared with the renowned Betty's tearoom in Harrogate...More

Lovely selection of cakes and prompt efficient and friendly service. Good value for money as the portions are a good size. Well recommended.

This was my second visit to this restaurant and I have been more than satisfied on both occasions. The white tableclothes and well turned out waiters/waitresses give it a touch of class. The latter serve with a smile and are anxious to please. The food...More

Perfectly nice- still definately somewhere to tick off the list if visiting the area just to say youve done it but as a local it wasnt worth the visit . Went with family from outside the area as they had heard its reputation but we...More

Was taken for Afternoon tea as a birthday treat and boy what a treat it was. We waited to be seated (which wasn't too long) and a rather polite young man showed us to our table and gave us our menu's. The service was quick...More
