“fantstic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

Great to have a cafa in the shop so you can sort out what you need to buy. The drinks are a great price. I found out that its a friendly cafe a quieter if you want to have some time on own. The experience is that it can get busy on term time. And you see people that like the cafe and shop all in one. Overall its a fantastic place to go too. More people should vist the cafe. Alternatively just shop

“Good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

Reasonable selection of snacks, sandwiches and drinks on offer. Nothing out of the ordinary unfortunately. Why does anyone not take the bull by the horns and offer something a bit different or extra.

“Nice service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

Nice place to stop for a coffee & cake. The drinks are good. The apple tart is lovely, but give the scones a miss. They're a bit like shop-bought ones and nowhere near as good as the other cakes. The café is always clean & the staff are always friendly.

“A little bland”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013 via mobile

A nice cafe, well decorated, however the selection of hot food is very limited, for example today only baked potatoes. Sand witches a little stale. Friendly staff though. Still a welcome break

“A nice place to rest whilst shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

John Lewis at Home in Swindon is a biggish out-of-town store, which I like to browse. Among many departments, they have good Kitchen and Electronics areas where i spend much of my time there and when I have time to spare, I'll go into the Cafe, which is conveniently on the same floor. The food is mostly snacks, which are nicely presented; the place is always clean and the staff helpful.
