Been meaning to leave a review on this cafe for ages, went there this weekend and was blown away by the good food once again. The staff are always smiling and go the extra mile with their service.

Compared to the prices, service quality and portions I’m used to in London, this was a welcome surprise!! The team were bubbly and welcoming and I could not believe the value for money when I ordered a mega breakfast. I am in the area for...work every now and then and I will definitely be coming back for more! Thoroughly impressed and would highly recommend.More

Ordered a large sausage and bacon cob with brown sauce and it was pathetic. Same fillings as a small cob, just extra bread. Please see picture below.More

Phoned up at 9am and asked to collect cobs for 10am. Was told no problem. Arrived at 10am and the woman said it would be 5 minutes and to wait outside, they'd come and find me. 45 minutes later the bloke came out saying that...I should have come in because the cobs have been waiting for ages. Got back and none of the cobs had sauce in. This has happened two weeks in a row and it's not cheap either. If you love waiting ages for dry, cold cobs then this is the place for you.More

I've started working at the factory across the road and used the Wayfarer Cafe a few times in last 2 weeks for my lunch. To be recommended (particularly the home made quiche options, a meal in themselves!).
