Just your average greasy spoon breakfast really. Not bad for a service area. A damn sight quieter than stopping at the McDonald’s a few miles before, which was heaving. Nice quiet seating area in the trees with lots of room around. All kept pretty clean....More

We stopped for breakfast on our journey from Devon to Berkshire. They've made some changes and they are good. Excellent toilet facilities for ablebodied and the disabled. Breakfast was very good. We will definitely be stopping there again.

A great cafe on the A303 Cartgate Service Area. Reasonably priced food and drink .... not grossly overcharging like some service areas. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Pleasant and helpful staff. One minor point, and possibly not the responsibility of the cafe, is that the...More
