Right in the middle of Malmesbury, this is a good location for a cafe. Inside the town hall next to an art gallery, small museum and information centre. Car park outside. Sandwiches were made freshly and care taken to check exactly what we asked for....More

I love Jackdaws....I live locally outside of Malmesbury and if I nip into town, I sometimes get a coffee to take out and Jackdaws is always the best coffee - and the cakes are delicious too! The young staff who work there are always lovely...More

It is in a good location right next door to the information centre. Unfortunately I felt I was ripped off. As I cannot tolerate caffeine I wanted de-caff coffee so I was charged an extra 40p for that. To add insult to injury my intolerance...More

If it is a cup of coffee you would like in a comfortable chair sitting in a window seat on a cold sunny day watching the world go by then you probably could not do better than when I did just this at Jackdaws. It...More

For a good cup of coffee, this is definitely the place. Sadly the owner is so grumpy, he makes me nervous every time I go and order something! Because of that only two stars.

Cracking location and comfortable seats, however... Very limited menu (only a few toasties on as warm food, even during cold weather), owner is quite abrupt and charmless, quite expensive for what it is. Try Amanda’s or The Summer Cafe for a warmer welcome and wider...More

This has always been a bit of an unfriendly and sterile place (the owner/manager is particularly grumpy) but on our last visit it had really gone down hill. The only food, other than cakes, they now serve is a few pre-prepared toasted sandwiches. On asking...More

I'm a regular here. The coffee is great. Always nice nibbles to be had. The staff are friendly and kind and put up with a gaggle of women every Tuesday morning, all knitting and stitching - I'm one of them. Mums and babies are welcomed...More

Visited today (15th Sep). Tried to order from the not very extensive menu, only to be informed that there were no paninis and no toasties today - so about half of that menu unavailable. OK, these things happen, maybe there were problems with their equipment...More

Good location, coffee and food let down by surly, rude and grumpy staff today. The staff should remember that they're not doing customers a favour when serving them but providing a service. Perhaps we visited on a bad day based upon previous reviews. We will...More
