Had lunch here with a few friends. We all had the root vegetable soup which was rather bland. It was served with two very tiny pieces of bread. Service was good if a little slow when ordering at the counter.

Relaxing coffee area with variety of seating in spacious light area, and WiFi. Drinks ordered were good but cakes FIVE STAR. The coffee area itself was clean and attractive: toilets and passage to them grubby hence four stars rather than five.

Dropped in to the Foxlowe for coffees. Thank goodness we only ordered regular ones as they were huge.

Had lunch here as our number one choice was not open. Menu choice was tiny and very unimaginitive. Baked potato, soup, wraps. I had the veggie wrap which was okay. Hubby had the mushroom and tomato rarebit. He was really disappointed with it. Although he said it tasted okay it was basically a big sloppy mess on two pieces of... More

Beautiful venue in the heart of Leek, serving brunch, lunch and cakes all at reasonable prices. The staff are volunteers I believe and their service is great. Indoor and outdoor seating with a lovely garden and baby friendly.

Four of us had home made soup and bread, cakes and coffee. Excellent quality and a great location to stop for lunch to get away from the busy market square.

Good food ( though sometimes better than others), lovely place to chill out and enjoy a coffee/ tea. Sometimes staff can be a bit grumpy ( other days staff are fab). Would highly recommend!
