Often go here for lunch, although the food is sometimes inconsistent it's never bad, service is polite and efficient and the atmosphere and décor good.

Freshly cooked food, not cheap but good value. Service slow but this reflects the fact that food is cooked to order. Worth waiting for. Highly recommended

Spotted the cafe today as we passed on the way to the beach having not done so before. On way back, decided to pop in for a coffee and breakfast.

So pleased we did! Lovely booth seat at the front of the cafe, polite staff not to mention yummy food. I had the eggs royal; not had before and it was delicious. OH had a full English and commented how tasty and non-greasy it was.

We would probably opt for a filter coffee pot each next time, just as we preferred it stronger rather than having a pot of hot water with one pot of coffee. Nice cantuccini on the side though.

Will recommend to friends and more than likely visit again for same as convenient opening time and location.

Thank you.

Booked marples because we heard about the great food and it was a gorgeous meal. The thing that let it down was the atmosphere not many people in on a friday night probably better to go at lunch time.

The food is acceptable for the price, but the staff and their attitude make me think twice about going in this restaurant every time. I always feel like they think they are doing me a favour by serving me a coffee. I also cant take friends here with children as its frowned upon!

hello Rebecca, i'm sorry to hear you feel this way about the waitresses at Marples. We always try to give friendly efficient service to all our customers and i find it hard to take when we are given a bad review on TripAdvisor. Thankfully we have lots of customers who feel the opposite to you and are happy with the service we give. And as to your comment on children not being welcome you only have to scroll down the other reviews on this page to see a lovely review from a young girl who had a really lovely visit to Marples recently. the only thing we ask of people with pushchairs is that they are folded down as we do not have a lot of space between tables and as we are moving around the restaurant with hot food and drinks we feel it is a safety hazard to have to lean over pushchairs to place plates and cups on the tables. I'm sure you'd agree that nobody would like an accident to happen where a hot drink or hot food was dropped on a child who was sitting in the pushchair.
