Visited Marlborough and paid Polly's a visit. Almost wished we hadn't ! Thought I was going in for a cuppa. Ended up have a Welsh rarebit..... Delicious! And the killer was the cream tea and sandwiches! Very tasty! And the scones were the best I've...More

A morning coffee break at Polly's has always been the reason for diverting via Marlborough but we have made our last visit. The whole atmosphere has been altered for the worse. All tables laid for meals at 10.15 a.m. and the wide selection of cakes...More

We went to Polly's for our wedding anniversary lunch and everything worked out really well. There was a good choice of vegetarian food for our son. My quinoa salad was truly excellent. Service was friendly. We could not fail this meal.

This was an excellent place for lunch in Marlborough: central, plenty of tables so space was not limited, very friendly service and perfect for a light lunch which was what we wanted. More substantial options seemed to be available. A pleasant atmosphere and I thoroughly...More

All the soul has been taken out of Polly Tea Rooms. Cakes not as good as they were! Tea and coffee awful. Bitter, far too strong and undrinkable. We had an afternoon tea with a microwaved scone. We were not asked if we wanted a...More
