Super facility with passionate staff, unfortunately just not enough of them for a busy venue and the waiting time today was around 25 minutes from joining the queue, I gave up after 15 minutes today so opted for the costa self service machine at the store entrance on the way out

I know it's only a cafe inside Tesco's but I had to write a quick review as I was thoroughly impressed. Completely agree with another reviewer that it's even better than ones in John Lewis and the like. The lady behind the counter was really friendly and helpful. I had ordered a pulled chicken bbq bap, my hubbie ordered a... More

I have popped in for a quick coffee many times before doing the tedious task if shopping in Tesco. I have always enjoyed a decent cup of coffee in the usual big coffee shops, but Harris and Hoole offer a far superior experience. They ensure that every cup is made perfectly to suit the bean and it shows. This does... More

First visit to this coffee house. Great service and the best earl grey tea I've tasted in a long time. I had an egg & rocket roll and was delicious. Ambience very relaxed, you don't feel like you're in tesco. Very contemporary, will definitely visit again.

Visited harris and hoole with my grandparents before they did their shopping. Ordered 2 cups of tea, a coffee and 2 muffins. I nearly had a heart attack when they said it would be £14! Price list not very clear and we certainly would not have ordered from here if we knew we would be ripped off like this! We... More

Me and my colleague went upstairs to what we thought was the tesco café. Harris and Hoole has taken it's place. What a load of crap. We paid £15 for two 'nouveau cuisine' pots of tea with sticks in and two salads with 30p worth of ingredients in. A newspaper report says that some Harris and Hoole have become unprofitable....
