“Fab for Weekend Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

I live in Corsham with is only a short drive to Allington Farm Shop which also has a fabulous Cafe attached. The breakfast here is wonderful only been here twice now but will be one of the first on my list it the urge to have breakfast out. The staff are very efficient and friendly, and with the place always full at weekends they do a fantastic job (well done). The service is quick event when it's busy... so all in all this cafe has it bang-on with its smooth operation and pleasant atmosphere it a must.

As its very popular, it can get very busy but never had to wait and staff clear tables and reset very quickly. As for prices - I think they are reasonable for the quality of food your consuming... as if you prefer something a little cheaper you could always head to Salisbury's for a value breakfast which works out a few pounds cheaper.

Keep up the good work... will be back again - one happy customer!

“Very good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

However you may need to take out a 2nd Mortgage to pay for it!! The food is always very fresh but the place is very popular. The tables are very close together so others nearby can easily eavesdrop on your conversation.

“Good, but very expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

Good food with high quality ingredients but its really expensive. i really like this place it is really good food but it is expensive. Nevertheless, there is very little choice in Chippenham so this is probably one of the best options for a decent lunch, if you can afford it.

“Tasty lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014 via mobile

A very popular place to meet friends for tea and cakes or for lunch. Can be very busy at times and they only allow a small number of reservations.

Varied menu. Decent sized portions. Friendly staff.

“great cafe, but carefully pick the best time to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

We've visited Allington Cafe several times, as it combines nicely with buying fresh food in the adjacent farm shop.

Decent coffee, good service, cakes & pastries generally good (although nothing to write home about).
The 'conservatory' at the front is nice & bright.
We made a mistake of visiting for morning coffee during the school holidays. In addition to the regular clientele, the cafe soon filled up with 'mouthy' families with noisy children, some of whom clearly didn't find it easy to behave in a reasonable manner.

This is a family-friendly cafe and it's nice to have a mixed bunch of customers in there to liven the place up a little, but the 'brat brigade' wasn't something we'd experienced here before.
The atmosphere is usually very good and we will just choose our visiting times a bit more carefully in future.

We hope to keep coming back for excellent coffee & cakes (and of course the farm shop!)
