Great food whilst shopping. Terrific varied menu with loads of cakes and treats. Good service, very clean and well presented. Good place to meet up with others for that lunchtime snack at reasonable price!

I like booths for a few special purchases, when you know you want something nice to eat but you're not sure what. Initially I loved finishing off my trip there with a coffee and a cake in their cafe, especially the raspberry flapjack. Recently though that's all changed, I find the food choice available very limited. Bland, poor quality sandwiches... More

In Kendal for the day and came across Booths and decided that we would take lunch there. Well we queued for a very long time and when we got to the till there was 1) A lack of food 2) A lack of staff. I found this a bit of a surprise given it was 1pm on a Saturday. Anyway... More

I often eat breakfast here, the food is good, particularly the quality of the ingredients in my fry up. If you sign up for a booths card you can get your coffee or tea for free and better still if you spend enough you can get your parking refunded which is why I'n awarding five stars for value. Service can... More

When we last ate in here it was a lovely vibrant cafe with a good variety of food on the menu. Menu is now tiny ! Pre-pack sandwiches which is very odd. Didn't stay for lunch here .. just tea and coffee .. hardly any customers on the two visits today. One poor girl serving on the till and making... More

Why on earth have they changed this once lovely Cafe into a self service motorway station type of place? We regularly shop at Booths as the quality of the food is very good, however we cannot say that anymore about the quality and service in the new style self service Cafe. The sandwiches were very 'damp' and the coffee was... More

On possibly the busiest shopping day of the year Booths of Ripon did us proud. We wanted a turkey crown and they had all gone from the shelves. However all was not lost as a helpful assistant said a delivery had just been made and he would get one. And he did!!

Stop here for tea/coffee regularly. I have a Booths card so I am entitled to a free drink per visit. If I did not have this card I would probably not visit. Some of the staff are quite unfriendly.

The Artisan cafe that was Booth's food area was delightful, and always had a wait to be seated, as it was so rightly popular. The new arrangement that is self-service is a disappointing development. The service was slow, the food now lacking flair and the ambience quite lost. Shame.

My wife and Ihave visited the Artisan at Booths Kendal on many occasions but we have not been for over a year and today we were in Kendal and decided to visit for a meal. We were looking forward to eating there as on previous visits the food and service have been excellent, on arrival we saw dirty tables piled... More
