This was my first time visiting this cafe. As it is cafe and shop it makes it for nice experience. They have non dairy and gluten free cakes available and their carrot cake tasted after lavender and was delicious and moist. Nice coffee and friendly staff. There's plenty of free parking available and the restroom was impeccably clean.

Nice food and relaxing atmosphere. Food is good but the prices are inflated. Cheese on toast ska Welsh Rabit is 8.95, drinks and sides are equally over priced for a self serve environment. 3/5

My cousin and I thought that it would be a good idea to bring our mums, who were both celebrating birthdays, and their granddaughters here for coffee to celebrate together. I rang a week before to see if I could book a table as there were six of us but was told that they only take bookings for people who... More

I come here frequently to meet friends and to work. Food is homemade and delicious, although the selection isn't extensive. The cafe is also a shop that's filled qith quirky things including cards, mirrors, and all sorts. I do find the food rather expensive though, although it's excellent so I don't mind. A bowl of soup and a chunk of... More

We often pop in here when we go to the south. It's prettier than the M25 and M3 We usually enjoy coffee and amazing scones. This time, we had the family with us and the staff went to extraordinary lengths to set a table and chairs to accommodate us. Truly, this is the perfect place in a lovely village, the... More

..... then this is the place for you. We decided to revisit 'Tillings' since it had changed name to The Lavender Goose in the hope that they had listened to reviews and feedback and addressed the frankly awful and hugely limited menu. No, they haven't. In fact it's now even worse. The menu on their website is NOT the menu... More

Over the years this eatery has been a family favourite, but I'm sad to say our last visit was quite a disappointment. I know it has recently changed hands/been rebranded, so it may well just be in a crossover period. However, I struggled to find much that appealed from their menu. I was sad to see that, for a cafe,... More

When Tillings Cafe opened in what had been a ropy deceased pub it was a delight. Run by a charming, warm manageress named Sarah with large portions of superb farm fresh food and a personable young staff. The place was packed. You could not get a parking space many days nor sometimes a table during any time I could steal... More

I am local and really really want this to be a nice cafe. I noticed the name had changed and hoped maybe the owners had too. The person serving was a lovely young girl, so far so good and friendly. But there was a terrifying grumpy lady being nasty to the staff, food took forever, and then we went to... More
