We hadn't booked so we were seated at at uninspiring table in the middle. The menus was equally uninspiring, particularly for vegetarians. The coffees and fruit juice was very small. The sandwiches were ok; not good enough to ever tempt me back in there. One waitress was quite grumpy. She clearly thought we were pains in the neck! Will return... More

Lovely coffee and scones here! We always stop during a bike ride and feel safe leaving our bikes propped against the fences. Staff are friendly and very welcoming of bike riders here!

We have visited the new Village deli restaurant in Newtown Linford many times. It's excellent food for Sunday lunch can be pre ordered and it's delicious. Deli items can be bought, or just pop in for tea and cake or breakfast . It's versatile and relaxed . The staff especially the young female Manager are excellent.it's a joy to visit.

The waitress said that there was a thai vegetable curry but that contained fish!!! In the end we just... More

Beware if you want to book a formal occasion, as we did in error as there are two Grey Lady restaurants in Newtown Linford one formal and one certainly not . We booked what we thought was the Gray Lady and no staff had the common sense to tell us this when the booking was made for a family 50th... More
