Wow, a 2nd bad review - I'm so sorry. Can you let me know the date of your visit and I will check which staff were on and get them to explain. Any staff descriptions would help me enormously too. This is not on!!

This has to be the worst cafe in Tetbury. We visited for lunch on a warm sunny weekend. It looked attractive from the outside and had what appeared to be a welcoming garden. There the positives end. The staff were indifferent, no one acknowledged us...More

We always pop in here after a walk at Westonbirt Arboretum. Their coffee is a lovely blend and their scrambled eggs on toast pretty much perfect every time. A really nice light and quirky setting with a fab walled garden for nicer days.

We visited twice during our stay in Tetbury and love the atmosphere and outside seating area. Staff are very friendly and the smoothies well worth trying.
