Thank-you for your feedback. This is disappointing to hear, as the Ploughman’s has always been a firm favourite with our customers. We will pass on your comments to the Head Chef and review the dish.

This Cafe is on a mezzanine over a very exclusive home & garden shop. Lovely items for sale but mega expensive! The cafe is nice and modern. Great scones and drinks. Enjoyed our afternoon tea in this lovely Snape Maltings complex

After looking around the rest of the centre, tea and cake was a definite need to be quenched. Cafe 1885 filled the requirement perfectly. Tea and coffee were lovely and the staff incredibly welcoming and friendly. The scones were good too. Not a huge amount...More
