1 meat and one vegetarian full English breakfast. Both tasty and served reasonably promptly by polite staff in nice surroundings.

The Polly Tea Rooms, part of Marlborough’s heritage, I do feel the “Bean Counters” have arrived, no sugar tongs, tea bags not leaves, tables squeezed together, tatty sheets of A4 paper used for menus.it’s good but not that good.

The Olde World nature of the building adds to the charm of the place. The cakes are to die for. The service was great and the staff both polite and attentive. All in a great place to have coffee and cakes or a long lunch.

Short of time and a coffee was required!! An old fashioned sort of place and seemed quite popular, but for all its quaintness seemed to lack some charm and warmth. The service was OK coffee OK.
