The cafe was quiet but we still had to wait at least 15 minutes for two soups. We also ordered two pots of tea but this was only warm when we got it, if you wanted milk in it then it was quite cold. Another family in the cafe kept sending things back too. Not the best cafe experience we've had.

Rubbish service, the girl taking orders had no idea what she was doing.

Coffee machine not working properly, husband had a rather cheap tasting coffee.

Waited for ages for a simple crumpet, which was not toasted properly!! Returned it to a un-friendly waiter to and waited another 20 minutes for another in its place.

The looks from this waiter seemed very rude, maybe its just his face but I did notice he spent most of the time rolling his eyes at the other girl serving and didn't seem very approachable at all. Had to ask for sweetners, I was shoved 2 and then again for serviettes...was again given 2, for a table of 7!!!!

Shame that this is letting down a lovely museum in a beautiful setting.

If your spending the afternoon at the Royal Marine museum, I suggest you avoid the cafe.. and take the short walk over the road to the very nice Coffee Cup!

We walked through the open front door at 0945am to be given a blank look by a young member of staff, they called "Grandad" who appeared from the kitchen to promptly inform us that they were not open yet... We were then ushered out of the establishment....

We popped in for lunch during our visit to the Royal Marines Museum. We had a baguette, a toasted sandwich, a portion of chips and two lovely mugs of proper tea. I was amazed at how reasonable the total price was. Added to that, the food is freshly prepared to order. Other establishments could learn a thing or two from The Quartermaster's Kitchen. Highly recommended.
