“Great Coffee, great staff, good place to relax”
Review of Harris and Hoole - CLOSED

Harris and Hoole
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 February 2014

Come here often to grab a coffee and a bite to eat whilst working. Staff are wonderful, coffee excellent (although some say not hot enough - but unfortunately those people are brought up on American chain coffee - Harris and Hoole is how it should be!).
Can get noisy with children - but not a problem (wish parents would leaner to clean up after themselves rather than leave it to staff).
Anyway probably my favourite place in Walton on Thames.
Keep up the good work!

The best 'proper coffee' in Walton by a mile! Good for families as plenty of pram/toddling space. Tasty cake and sandwiches but the coffee is the star of the show. Friendly staff who remember their locals.
Only improvement would be a bit more care for the toilet cleanliness on busy days.

We liked this place because you can ask for your coffee to be made hot - as the default is to serve it warm. Nice touch. However, we tried the toasted sandwiches which we didn't enjoy as they are only toasted on one side - the underside remains uncooked! Also, notwithstanding a full description of what the contents are, we found them bland and un-exciting. We got our timing wrong on a couple of occasions and it was full of mums with buggies unfortunately and the place resembled a creche rather than a coffee shop! Free Wi-Fi facility is attractive and hence was worth putting up with the creche atmosphere.

We visited Harris and Hoole in Walton multiple times during our stay in the UK and after the first time, we were greeted like a regular customer. Initially we didn't want the coffee card but on our second visit they said we should have it and back date the coffees we had already which meant we got a free one.
We had a couple of lunches there and both were great. The coffee also was amongst the best we had on our whole trip.

If you like a cresh then this is the place for you watching mothers with their kids in baby buggies. It's over priced and over hyped. Better places in town to have a decent coffee minus the children.
