Have visited Woodhall Spa many times and only discovered this place through a Trip Advisor search of best places to eat breakfast. We were not disappointed. The service and food were just great! Beautifully cooked breakfast, very hot and tasty. Highly recommend if you like a full English breakfast.

Waited to be served like a normal cafe, as we stood at the till. To be told by an old grumpy women from the back to move and that we were in the way (very rude and terrible service). Even very rude to her staff. Nice drink though and great if you want to be treated like a door mat.

We ate here on Tuesday. Very busy when we called in for a coffee so reserved a table. After a walk around Woodhall Spa we returned and had dinner. The food was delicious, the service great and the owner and staff very friendly. The café was spotlessly clean and was being used by the local people. Always a good sign... More

Came across this by chance in the little shopping arcade on Main Street. Lovely big English breakfast with tea and toast included. Friendly staff made us feel very welcome. Very reasonable price. Simple cafe but good excellent value food. Recommend to give it a try.

Deep in the bucolic heart of Lincolnshire is the village of Woodhall Spa; a village carried from the Garden of Eden by angels with hearts bursting with love and beauteous purpose. At the very centre of this blessed community is the Melrose café. Don't be fooled by the simple design of the Melrose's interior because once you enter you are... More

Always consistently good. We love the breakfasts, they are great value for money and set you up for the day! We have visited a couple of times at lunch time which has also been very good! The staff are very friendly especially the young man we usually see (whom I assume is the owner/ manager?) we always enjoy visiting here!

I was amazed to be offered 3 different types of gluten free bread - that has never happened to me before! A wonderful clean friendly cafe. Portion sizes just right. Fresh ingredients. Home made cakes looked great but no room to taste after main course! Will definitely be back for more!

This is one of my regular cafes when I visit Woodhall Spa. Usually I have tea with a scone or cake, which are always of good quality. I'm only ever slightly disappointed when the owner hasn't had time to bake the scones, but cake is always available. Also as a vegetarian I have also had one of their vegetarian breakfasts,... More
