I confess - I go here all the time and it's taken me a while to write a review. Let's be clear - all the cakes and sandwiches and snacks are absolutely fine. But I'm a coffee drinker and it's all about the coffee, which is stunning. Well chosen blends immaculately handled with the owners often in attendance to keep... More

Stunning cup of coffee cortado ! Beats the franchises hands down ! They know their coffees and suggest the blend for your taste. The coffee was smooth and not to intense and strong like some of the franchises . Coffee with a glass of water is classy and helps you savour the beautiful flavours . Thank you bean and bud... More

Off the beaten track but not far off and well worth finding. Delicious coffee and toast and marmalade, both homemade. Great independent coffee and tea shop. I hope they do well.

Thanks for the opportunity to address your comments. We do try to balance out takeaway and sit in customers. I also apologise if we did not clearly communicate to you the difference between a chain latte/cappuccino and the way we make coffee. I assure you that there actually is more than one way to make a coffee. The way we... More

Thanks for your comments and glad you enjoyed the Ugandan. We change our coffees every week or so and really try to support some of the less well known origins in order to support farmers who care about their crop. Hope to see you soon, perhaps for a different single origin. More

In a world of corporate coffee chains, this individual coffee/tea house is a real treat. My coffee connoisseur companions all agree that Bean and Bud's selection is excellent and there's a refreshingly non-pseud attitude to it all. The tea, too, with its accompanying timer, is very good. I usually shy away from toasted sandwiches, but the ones on offer at... More
