Visit regularly to meet friends for coffee, staff always polite, friendly and helpful. The coffee and other beverages are always to the highest standard. Variety of food to suit most dietary needs. Love visiting here.

Lovely location which is very conveniently placed for customer access. However, upon entering you realise the food and coffee served within is lacking in quality and doesn't reflect the price.

All I wanted was a large cup of coffee. I'm on crutches so I asked for it to be taken to my table. It duly arrived, on a tray, but the waitress had slopped some in the saucer. I emptied the saucer onto the tray, and made a lot of noise rapping the saucer onto the tray. I then waved... More

Mr Beans is a very popular coffee shop and very busy. It is worth your time though because the food and drink are all extraordinary. I love it there and will always go back.

The coffee is good and the products from 1066 Bakery are always lovely (good sausage rolls) however, the hygiene and overall presntability of this place is not acceptable. The upstairs has had a refurb and looks nice, but downstairs is in need of a lick of paint and serious refreshment. The coffee station, providing milk,sugar etc. is always filthy and... More

Just needed to grab some lunch and kill half an hour between appointments, and thought this seemed a rasonable option. A mistake. Scuffed furnishings and grubby floor, so an overall dingy look. I ordered a ploughmans because that's usually a safe option, but it came with a dry burger bun instead of a baguette, and the cheese was sliced sandwich... More
