So we just wanted a quick coffee and croissant before heading into town. Took ages, mainly because waiter kept getting order wrong. Coffee quite bitter. Wouldn't rush back.

Having recently started working in Bestow, came upon this by chance. Quite simply the best cup of coffee I have had in a long time. Pecan pie was excellent too. Friendly service and prices comparable with the ever encroaching chains but for a vastly superior product. Friendly service too. Will undoubtedly be back.

Great for catching up with friends. They make a very good Pecan pie, which reminded me of a visit to NYC. Great selection of coffee and serve a great tasting decaf, which is much appreciated when you're 8 months pregnant. Staff are friendly and didn't rush me, which can happen in (chain) coffee shops.

Rave reviews? Possibly, but maybe the reviewers had a different barista to the miserable individual we happened to interact with. Arriving at 17:44 were literally barred from entering by the barista (a dark-haired American or Canadian girl) stating "We're closing". 😳 Not for another 15 minutes surely, I asked. The barista said nothing, then repeated, "we're closing". 😳 To be... More

I have been coming for years just for a sit down and to enjoy my great latte as a treat. The service is always great and the staff are always friendly. I like the fact you can sit outside and smoke and watch beeston walk by. There is an upstairs as well and toilets. Free wife and papers. I have... More

I visit here regularly and have sampled the hot chocolate, mocha and cappuccino. My main gripe is that quite often I find the chocolate just isn't hot enough. Some of the more chatty, friendlier staff have left recently so there isn't that familiar feel to the place that there once was. Maybe as the new staff settle, this will improve.

Visited The Bean for a second time after persuading my husband to return. He was not very keen as a female barista was rude to him previously about his caffeine intolerance. He informed him very curtly that all coffee even decaffeinated had an amount of caffeine in it. We are well aware of this and have done our research. He... More

Solid place with excellent coffee. Small but certainly worth a visit. Food is good but not memorable. Staff are friendly and know how to use coffee machine properly.

I've been here many times when I lived in Beeston, and still try to visit when I return. The coffee and espresso drinks are among the best that I've had in the UK, with a lovely atmosphere to read the newspaper or catch up with your partner or friends.
