Rang ahead to make sure they accepted dogs, Very friendly lady who said yes. Lots of luscious cakes on display as well as a good choice of sandwiches and meals. We had a tasty bacon sandwich and a cup of tea. We looked at other meals being served and they definitely looked very appetising.
Visited today with a baby and a 5 year old. Rang ahead (10.15) for a 12.15 table.
Got there 10 mins early and there was a huge que, so we went to sit down at the only reserved table with a chair missing - for the high chair presumably (process of elimination and common sense used here) friend went up to order at 12.15, at 12.20 while she was still waiting to order the bloke came over to me and explained we weren’t supposed to sit there and they would need the table back by 1.15 - which would be fine.
By 12.40 my friend was STILL waiting to order, and was made to feel unwelcome by the man behind the till saying we shouldn’t of sat down and she agreed to move.
We were moved (as were another couple who were mid way through drinking their coffee) to a small table which was not suitable for a high chair and a 5 year old and we couldn’t fit all our meals on when they eventually came at around 12.55 (had to utilise a spare chair to balance the hot pot of tea that was placed next to the handsy baby - again please use common sense..
In any case we were actually finished by 1.15 and didn’t bother sticking around for dessert.
Then to top off the rude service we had already received by the man, we were confronted on our way out by a lady whom I think was the owner asking us if there was a problem with our meal to which we replied we were asked to move and she became quite defensive and rude about needing the table by 1.15 as it was pre booked and when we stated we too had booked, she argued we had only given an hours notice (it was 2 as we checked our phone record) in any case if they didn’t have the table space they should of said on the phone.
Also when we left at 1.15 there was nobody sat at that table so the aggressive nature was really unhelpful!
If we had realised that it would be such an inconvenience for them we wouldn’t have bothered and we certainly won’t be bothering again!
Love the cappuccino and the muffins.
Tables outside for warmer weather and several inside.
Only thing it lacks is a view out.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
I am sure we will return.
Enjoyed breakfast on two occasions this week and both were wonderful. Yes you do have a little wait but the food is fresh and well cooked. Loads to choose from and the smoothies are to die for according to my 7 year old granddaugter
Stopped on the of chance as recommended by the local chemist, I can say we where pleasantly surprised the cake was to die for and the coffee lovely
We will be back
Fabulous food and the chunky chips are scrumptious. What a great place kids had the milk shakes and could not finish it .
Visited back inMarch and enjoyed a lovely salad lunch. Staff friendly and very efficient. Even though it was busy I did not have to wait too long to be served.
Came into the lovely ginger cow cafe and was blown away with the food and service we received from Jane who bent over backwards to meet all our requirements, we asked for extra strong coffee and a smaller portion of Thier smoked salmon, no problem the food arrived buitfuly presented and very fresh and delicious.
Its a must.
Came in with hubby for breakfast food arrived and it was hot and very fresh, everthing is cooked to order and delicious.
Seen this place advertised on Facebook and wanted to give it a try. Staff are lovely but I’m afraid the place isn’t the cleanest. Tables are sticky and not wiped very clean tried to move the teapot and it was stuck to the table. The floor needed a sweep. Had tea and cake and it was just ok. Not sure I would visit again.
We had a good lunch and our granddaughter loved the ice cream
Quiche and sandwiches were very good as were the tea cakes
If you want a beautiful fresh made scone with cream and jam go here ,so many nice things to choose from good meals to snacks
We visited as a group of 12, 6 being children. Service was excellent and food was prompt, tasty and reasonably priced. A 20 minute walk from Tattershall lakes along the river.
Waited and waited while woman wiped tables, messed about. Eventually ordered, paid, founds seats, realised tables filthy! Waited, only ordered pot of tea and cakes, couldn't stand the state of the place so said we would sit outside though this was not nice either. Waited some more, waited longer...... Eventually small pot of not very warm tea arrived with uninteresting cakes. All very shoddy and a very odd attitude. Will never go back. Certainly not a coffee shop, just down market greasy spoon . It was clear why you had to pay before getting to tables or food.
A good place to be..staff nice and friendly...place nice and clean and very welcoming...the coffee is one of the best I’ve tasted by far. Yes would definitely visit again.
Great food, great service, great coffee, immaculate little place, has to be the best stop on Conningsby....what is there not to like
Popped in one lunch with a friend just to get a drink and maybe a cake. Ended up having more and loving it the so much I was back the following week. Great selection of food on the menu and amazing selection of flavoured milkshakes. Cant wait to make my way through them.
We always walk into the Ginger Cow from Tattershall Lakes, very friendly, dog friendly, good food and drinks
Lovely breakfast and sandwiches for the family. Staff always friendly when we've been and service is quick. We always try and pop in here when passing through as well worth a visit.
Came away with the girls for a few days to Lincolnshire and came to the ginger cow coffee shop for afternoon tea the service and the food were fantastic friendly and very accommodating staff nothing was to much trouble would highly recommend this place
