It’s hard to find an eatery more quintessentially English than the Cromwell Coffee House on Cranleigh’s High Street. Dating from 1560, the exterior has the charm of a country cottage, with dormer windows, creepers on the walls, and a porch over the front door, as well as a pretty patio for finer weather.
The interior boasts wooden beams and an attractive inglenook fireplace, lending a warm and cosy ambiance to this historic 16th century building. The food is equally traditional and ranges from delicious breakfasts, quiches, soups and salads. Wine and beer are also on offer. For those with a sweet tooth, the Cromwell cream tea is the bee’s knees, while those looking for something less sweet can opt for the savoury version, which includes a homemade cheese scone, a wedge of Cheddar and a choice of chutney, as well as tea or coffee.
Service is friendly and efficient, making a visit to the Cromwell Coffee House a thoroughly delightful experience.
