Really enjoyed the full English breakfast here, decent portion size and the quality of the ingredients was good. Although I live relatively local, I'd never been here before until recently, but I'll definitely return.

Called in for breakfast on the way through Marlborough, had an excellent breakfast, one full English and one eggs royale with really nice cups of tea served by caring staff. Purchased some delicious cake. I would give 5 stars but a little too pricey.

Pretentious. Very EXPENSIVE, for what it is, which is a Gloryfied Cafe. The staff are very polite, they always smile on cue to all enquires.

I honestly don't know. I've never seen one there. I would be very surprised if they did.
