“Lovely cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Planned a cycle ride around this cafe for the halfway, obligatory, tea and cake stop. It looks very attractive from the roadside, tables outside with real tablecloths within a picket fenced area. (Dog drinking water bowl supplied). Inside are more tables than you might expect, a counter full of scrummy looking cakes and a wonderful radiogram/record player. On the menu were bacon buttes, full english breakfasts and other dishes which will tempt me back (soon!). I had a lovely pot of tea, really fresh tasting, and a great slice of Lemon Drizzle cake. The waitress was very friendly and welcoming too. I highly recommend this cafe.

“Quirky Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

On the way back from Whitchurch my wife and I stopped here for a bite to eat. We had a very nice sandwich and soup followed by a delicious piece of Bakewell tart. Food was presented very nicely, great service and a very nostalgic to see a gramophone playing a 33 record! Whilst prices were reasonable there were a couple of stains on the tablecloth.

“A great little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

Cafe Pemberton is a lovely little place to stop for lunch, breakfast, afternoon tea... well anytime really. We have a season ticket to the Hawkestone Follies, and we always make sure we stop here on the way or way back. The food is fantastic quality, all freshly prepared and great value. Nothing is too much trouble for Ruth and her team and children are particularly welcome and well catered for. There's even complimentary nappies in the loo! So now to mention the cake. The unbelievable cakes, all homemade and plentiful. You WILL be spoilt for choice, but it's a good excuse to come back next time and try something else. To pass by without stopping in would be a real shame.

“Perfect for a little treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Lovely little cafe, friendly owner and lovingly decorated. Had afternoon tea here with my Dad - the food was excellent as was the service, despite being very busy. The cakes are absolutely delicious - highly recommend! Family friendly too - toys and high chairs available.
