We attended with our daughter who is 18 months old. Having established they had a high chair, we assumed they would be friendly to a young family. Unfortunately, the highchair was plonked by them several feet from our table as there was a chair in the way of where the high chair could go to have our daughter eat with... More

2 sandwiches and a pot of tea for £16.05? My partner and I visited RRG this past week when passing through Bury St Edmunds - it was a particularly cold day and after walking around the Abbey we were famished. The staff were friendly on arrival, it was cosy inside - just what we needed. We made our order and... More

Myself & my wife went here on a Sunday afternoon and had a very nice coffee and snack, the decor is very nice and of course the view of The Angel Hill is fantastic... However the (young) staff seemed to think that because they were tucked around the corner from the till nobody could hear them, constant foul language amid... More

A brilliant little cafe. We sat in here to rest our bones after several hours of walking around Bury St Edmunds. Although we didn't eat, what we saw being served looked amazing. All home made. The coffee was superb. We'll stop here again on our next vist to Bury St Edmunds.

Noticed this cafe the day before and thought we would have breakfast here rather than at Premier Inn where we stayed for the night. Just managed to find table before morning rush. We both had Eggs Benedict, yummy. Coffee excellent. So many people turned away because place was full, obviously very popular with locals. Looking across road at two larger... More

Great selection of loose leaf teas (lapsang souchong was delicious), good coffee and moist carrot cake. We spent an hour here and we're unhurried. Lovely staff.
