the best thing about the kettle sings is the view. i will even sit out on the terrace in colder weather. the view is amazing and the drive up the hill is nice too. the cakes are well baked and the tea is as expected

The cafe's greatest asset is undoubtedly the view. The food was good - we had tea (huge pot), coffee, jacket potatoes with cheese and ratatouille (a little disappointing that there is no tuna mayo option). The surroundings are pleasant enough but it was cold inside and there was far too much loud chatting coming from the staff. Not very relaxing.

I have visited here for years. The food is always good and the views beautiful, but they are very slow at serving. They now have a kids menu, but smaller kids are past it before the food arrives. I also feel that the food is slightly overpriced. The toilets are lovely and very clean. There is also a great baby... More

I know friends who rave about it but for us it offered nothing very special. It was ok for coffee and a cake with a nice view but so are many other places locally. Maybe we just chose a day when it was lacking in a bubbly atmosphere?

The views from the cafe are outstanding and the quality of the food is excellent, however some of the prices are out of this world. It cost me £2.75 for a tea for one, just the tea! I should have chosen the coffee, it was cheaper.

Great place to stop and have a cup of tea and home-made cakes while taking in fantastic views of the English countryside. Friendly staff clean environment welcoming great menu, all home-made highly recommend it after a long walk on the Malvern Hills

I live in the vicinity of the Malvern Hills and have enjoyed many visits to the Kettle Sings over past the 40 years. Sadly this was not the case last Saturday when my sister, who was making a rare visit to stay with me, and I decided to call in there for a quick coffee after our walk. We waited... More

Visited with friends in May and they requested a return trip! Thanks again for a scrumptious lunch (with beer) and helpful smiley service. We all enjoyed the sandwiches whilst looking at the panoramic view with the help of the thoughtfully provided guide. A unique restaurant and a pleasure to be there.
