This m&s restaurant at Horwich is getting more packs every time I go. No complaints with the food our service. The Restaurant is far to small, There are to many tables crushed together makes you feel very uncomfortable. Makes you feel like you can't have a conversation without the people next to you hearing everything you're talking about.

Enjoyed coffee & scone with my mum whilst we were out shopping. OK, nothing special, but the staff were very helpful and the Café was spotless and comfortable.

Called in while shopping in the rain. Dishes are all pre-prepared but okay. Guess that it was as shoppers expect.

Welcome break on a shopping trip. Usual M & S standard of coffee. Large café in large store. Would definitely visit again on a shopping trip to Bolton. Did not sample the food but it looked excellent.

We do visit here quite often on our travels, but the ecor is now dated, and the space needs updating. The food is still okay for the price range.

Called in on a Sunday with my grandaughter. Staff not particularly friendly, calling loudly accross to one another. One even walked past our table shouting loudly to the others ' some customers are really dirty'. Left the cafe another said that's the last we'll see of her. Not the normal standard we expect from m& s. Won't be visiting again.

Went into the M&S cafe for a quick tea. Toasted sandwiches and tea and coffee (and a little cake). All were the usual M&S Stansted food. An enjoyable quick tea.

Had a lovely afternoon tea with my daughter. I had an offer on where it was £10 but normal price is £23. Gotta say that's far in excess of what I would pay for this BUT at a tenner, excellent value!!
