It’s hard to find an eatery more quintessentially English than Cromwell Coffee House on Cranleigh’s High Street.
Dating from 1560, the exterior has the charm of a country cottage, with dormer windows and a porch over the front door, as well as a pretty patio garden for finer weather.
The interior boasts wooden beams and an attractive inglenook fireplace, lending a warm and cosy ambience to this 16th-century building.
Whether you’re seeking shelter from chilly weather or looking for somewhere to bask in the sunshine in warmer months, Cromwell Coffee House is a great all-rounder.
The food is equally traditional and includes delicious breakfasts, quiches, soups and salads, with many gluten-free options available. Wine and beer are also on offer for those wishing to accompany their meal with a tipple.
The Cromwell cream tea is the bee’s knees, and 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 Cromwell Coffee House a thoroughly delightful experience.
