We came here with around 15 others on a walk around the reservoirs. Food and coffee were good and they coped very well with so many of us arriving at once. A great spot for walkers.

Don’t go expecting posh & perfect but this place is quirky, warm, clean & prices are very reasonable. The menu is sufficient, the tea is excellent (leaves/strainer) and the dogs will love it because they get a free sausage! Sometimes hard to get a table,...More

We visited last summer, and it was pretty good.... but not even a full week into the new year and 2 visits later and this place is going to need to up its game considerably. First visit New Year’s Day and it seemed pretty busy...More

Popped in for a New Years Day tea and coffee with the kids. Slow service, I appreciate they were busy, but it costs nothing to at least acknowledge a customer with a smile and a friendly 'be with you in a few moments'. Ordered a...More

What a charming and lovely place to end our chilly walk with the most marvellous food and cakes to behold. Warm and friendly team my only warning is the size of the portions especially for the price. So glad we have found this fantastic tea...More

Wow! how do I respond to such an unfair review. Whilst we at Bluebells are very concerned for your parents health it is very unlikely they caught this very common virus at Bluebells. Gastroenteritis is a very common condition. It's usually caused by a bacterial...More

No real complaints about this cafe, which was a welcome and warm sanctuary after a chilly walk round the Marsworth Reservoirs. The staff were friendly and efficient, though they could perhaps do with some barrista training judging by the rather weak cappuccino I got. But...More

Thank-you for taking the time to leave a review. We will of course talk to the staff about measurements of coffee in the hot drinks. Feel fee to ask for an extra shot in future, much easier to add one than take it out :)...More

Yes there is parking, Have lunch then walk it off by walking around the reservoir and then have dessert on your way back.
