“Small but nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Nice gifts downstairs but not cheap.
Coffee and cake upstairs was good and served by a sweet waitress called Sophie.
Nothing to dislike.

“Not happy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

I will give anywhere a fair go and have been here three times over the last couple of months. First time we had coffee,nothing spectacular but fine. No real issues good or bad. Had better coffee, had a lot worse.

The second time was coffee and cake (coffee and walnut allegedly.) Got charged a premium rate for a small piece of cake that was on the dry side and didn't really taste of coffee or walnut??

Then the last visit. Went for a soft drink this time. I opted for orange juice and the other half had a lemonade. Now at the side of the counter on the wall they have a very fancy smoothie menu so rightly or wrongly I expected a decent quality orange juice, maybe prepared on a juice machine like many coffee shops have these days. The lemonade we were expecting to be a proper lemonade. The price was £2 each so expected some sort of quality. Placed the order and when asked for lemonade the reply came " we only have sprite, is that ok?". Price for that was £1 a can so still on the expensive side. The main insult was the orange juice.....I would have expected something relatively nice tasting for £2 but no.......out of the fridge came a carton of cheap branded orange juice, poured into a glass and handed to me. The best part was that plastered on the side of the 1litre carton was the price.....85p !!

I don't mind paying for quality and I know this is a tourist hot spot and businesses have to make the most of the season, often charging a premium. But come on guys....pick your game up and stop taking the mick out of your customers

We at pebbles are truly sorry that you had an experience deemed to be sub-standard. We have since changed our suppliers of lemonade and orange juice to reflect the high standards we expect.

“what ham”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

we ordered a ham salad sandwich on a granary bloomer, a chicken panini and two coffees, well for £20 what a con, the ham sandwich had less than half a slice of thin pre packed ham on it, we were appalled and would never ever go there again

“Not cosy for a winter visit”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

Upstairs and full of garden furniture to sit on - not a cosy feel on a cold and windy day.
Tolerable coffee.
The Sound Cafe was a much better choice for winter and good coffee.

Thank you BoogieBopBruce for your review.
After your feedback we decided to change the furniture we use in the gallery to give a much more cosy feel in the winter. Also all of our staff are now Barista trained to serve the highest quality coffee.
Thanks again for your review,
