Nice atmosphere overlooking Lake. Very clean and tidy restaurant and clean toilets ! 2nd time been served by the excellent smiley waitress Angie. The food is tasty, well cooked and presented. Only negatives were that the mussels in the Paella were very very small and the tomatoes in mixed salad were not ripe. Will go back again though for sure... More

After a day of shopping we stopped here for tea and cake. They serve an excellent large cup of tea here and the cakes are delicious. We recommend sticky toffee and pecan or mandarin and pistachio. Will definitely visit again.

Good positioned restaurant with a fair amount of 'outside' seating. Usual reliable range of breakfast food and drinks. Friendly and helpful staff and reasonably priced.

Popped in for a quick lunch whilst shopping in Lakeside. As always with pret good selection of sandwiches salads etc although the choice of hot wraps was disappointing as they only had a vegetarian one. The food we had was excellent and we would say the best food in any of the coffee shop chains around. Quick friendly staff and... More

Whilst on a visit to Lakeside we decided to have a coffee in Pret A Manger. Pret A Manger can be found next to House of Fraser. Staff served us with a smile, it was clean and tidy. They have a small selection of food including cakes,. The coffee was all we wanted and at 99p a cup of filter... More

Always a safe bet to get a good sandwich and a drink away from the bustling food hall. Good value and a good selection.

Well positioned on the ground floor close to House of Fraser. Large seating area and the usual range of Pret food / drinks. The staff were friendly and dressed up in view of Halloween. You cannot fault the quality of the offering.

My husband and I go here twice a week and are always served by very happy and friendly staff! The coffee is the best in Lakeside, and yes, we've tried them all over the years! The tables are always cleared and cleaned and if you don't like you coffee, they will make another one to your taste! Superb service!

Always a massive queue and no seats because idiots at the back of the queue seat-dive as soon as someone leaves. That seems to be the habit here. We never bother going here now. They never make my coffee how I ask. Even if I ask for a white filter coffee, don't fill it all the way to the top,... More
