Review added 09/08/2016 14:03 by C MillerFantastic meal as always! The cafe has started serving pasta and a lot more then just pizza! The chicken parmigiana was to die for, so fresh with lots of flavour, I have been craving it since! My husband had a cajun chicken pizza and it was so thin and delicious. The staff were friendly and the service was fast considering the restaurant was full!
Review added 31/10/2015 16:38 by anonGood lunch. So good in fact that we booked another table tto take twelve friends to celebrate a special birthday in a few weeks time.
Review added 27/10/2015 12:17 by MarkI have not tried this establishment and do not intend to. Ten pounds plus for a bit of dough and some toppings is way over the top for me.
Review added 25/10/2015 19:08 by anonDecent pizza but way overpriced for what you get. We've given them a couple of chances now and every time they've screwed our order up. Staff seems a bit scatty and not customer focused at all.
Review added 22/10/2015 16:18 by Anna MWe have pizza take away every fortnight or so and have to say we find the pizza fantastic! We are yet to have one we haven't enjoyed! I can't comment on eating in because we haven't done so but would highly recommend them for take away.
Review added 22/10/2015 08:14 by anonYes, service has dropped off significantly recently. And the ambience too, maybe just too expensive for what you get.
Review added 20/10/2015 15:16 by anonSeems to have gone downhill rapidly recently,
Review added 01/04/2015 08:12 by AprilPizza Dreams has today relaunched as Sweet Dreams offering puddings pizzaa.
Review added 30/03/2015 22:18 by anonExcellent pizza with service to match. Will definitely be back!
Review added 27/10/2014 14:08 by anonFantastic pizzas and -- a rarity these days fantastic customer service.
Review added 23/07/2014 18:20 by John EdwardsSitting outside this unique pizzeria having enjoyed a fabulous pizza. Great food and really friendly service.
Review added 11/06/2014 15:03 by Natasha LTried this restaurant for the first time - the pizzas are good and as authentically Italian as you can get from a pizzeria in Cookham! Lovely light dough base and yummy toppings on top. Not sure why people are complaining that if they don't want pizza the only other option is salad. The clue's in the name guys - it's a pizzeria, and that's what you're gonna get! :) Going back again this week - hopefully it will be as good as it was last time.
Review added 14/04/2014 13:36 by anonWent with 2 of my kids last week at about 5pm on Tuesday. Pizzas were BOGOF between 3pm-6pm Mon-Fri - so a great deal ! Kids were very happy as pizzas are pretty substantial. Only criticism is the Fruits de Mare pizza is VERY fishy ,with mackerel & anchovies being too fishy for her palette ! That being said, Pizza Dreams is thoroughly recommended & we'll be back !
Review added 13/04/2014 13:29 by anonWe went for pizza as family of 5 last night . All delighted with pizzas and friendly service. What an excellent local pizza joint. My daughter is allergic to dairy so they made her a special dessert which delighted her. We'll be back!
Review added 02/04/2014 13:59 by VanessaFantastic tasty pizza's, nice thin crust, good balance of ingredients and flavours. They had a goods specials board. The service from Ian and his team was exceptional, real attention to detail that so many places lack nowadays. We took our 7year old and they were really great with her. This has already become a firm family favourite. They have gluten free pizza bases so will be taking the mother in law there too very soon!
Review added 16/02/2014 13:29 by anonI had my birthday dinner at Pizza Dreams last night. There were 10 of us and everyone had a wonderful time. The staff were attentive and friendly and went out of their way to make the evening special, even giving me a bottle of Prosecco on the house! The food was yummy and the ambience intimate, cosy, fun and informal. Thanks to everyone for making it a perfect experience! :)
Review added 10/02/2014 14:57 by JennyRMy husband has to have gluten free diet, we would like to have lunch there but there is nothing to eat only salads and pitta bread. It would be lovely to be able to have somewhere like Pizza Dreams to have lunch,
Review added 10/02/2014 14:43 by anon"I do understand they do gluten free options on pizza but my query is they only do salads and pitta breads etc at lunchtime. That is when some customers would like to eat and do no want to wait until 3.30 for a pizza."
Review added 10/02/2014 14:41 by anonEssentially a creche serving very expensive food, catering to the 'just moved out from London' mob and their children.
Review added 04/02/2014 21:04 by Anna StroudThis was the best pizza I have eaten in many years! The base was amazing, so thin and light and perfectly complemented the delicious toppings. There were 21 of us eating and everyone enjoyed their starters and pizzas, and the few that had room for more chose the Salted Caramel Cheesecake which was so good that we're all determined to have it next time. Although we were a big group the service was good and always with a smile. Definitely recommend it.
Review added 11/01/2014 19:01 by MontyI do understand they do gluten free options on pizza but my query is they only do salads and pitta breads etc at lunchtime. That is when some customers would like to eat and do no want to wait until 3.30 for a pizza.
Review added 11/01/2014 18:01 by Her upstairsReally excellent pizza again tonight. We popped in for a takeaway; pizza two nights in a row which is unheard of as we usually have it once a month at the most. Can see Pizza Dreams becoming a habit, bye-bye Pizza Express. And to Monty below - the menu CLEARLY offers GLUTEN-FREE BASES on demand, so 1 star seems somewhat harsh. I think most places do coeliac options these days - it's a case of ask for what you want, as the chef/owner seems very amenable. If you weren't offered it, the staff need informing of the choices available.
Review added 11/01/2014 16:00 by MontyPizza sound very nice but if you don't want. pizza you are stuck with salad. My husband and I looked here for lunch yesterday but there was nothing to eat as he is a coeliac and has to have a gluten free diet. Pizza wasn't being cooked till 3.30 which is not good if you are looking for lunch. Good venue if they would do a little more for lunchtime.
Review added 10/01/2014 18:32 by Her upstairsOh my, that is good pizza. Excellent thin crust, plentiful toppings, lovely fresh ingredients, hand-pulled dough, pleasant staff. Authentic italian pizza like this puts the usual american-style offerings to shame. Very pleased this has opened in the village and wish it the success it undoubtedly deserves (an entirely selfish wish as I want this to stay open).
Review added 02/01/2014 10:53 by Pizza muncherGreat fresh thin crust pizza cooked perfectly. Very enjoyable and not the cheapest around but you cannot compare this to chain store plastic cheese goo. Great to have a local eatery for casual dining and will go back for sure.
Review added 16/12/2013 20:00 by richvery good and well welcomed, good value for money and great tasting food... the service could be a little quicker! but thank you for bring pizza to cookham....
Review added 16/12/2013 14:40 by chrisI have been using this cafe for a while. Very nice friendly people working there, and the food and coffee is always good. 5 stars!!
Review added 12/12/2013 14:25 by anonHad a takeaway pizza from here, great value for money and tasted great! This is just what the village needed.
Review added 11/12/2013 21:41 by anonWe popped in to try this place this evening it looked really nice when we went in the staff where very friendly we ordered garlic bread and some cokes and pizzas, about 20 mins later we got our lovely fresh garlic bread was yummy and very much looking forward to our pizza
Review added 01/12/2013 20:15 by DanoExcellent evening choice. Had one take away last week, and then ate in Saturday night. The staff are still learning how best to be organised, but are exceedingly friendly and service wins warm and friendly.
Review added 29/11/2013 20:18 by anonWent back for a takeaway pizza tonight. I think they've gotten things together nicely now and the place was packed. No complaints at all about the size or topping. Went down v nicely with a glass of Rioja. 8 quid seems pretty reasonable to me. Delighted to have a casual dining option up on the Rise. And it's not run by one of the big chains. They've made a gamble going for this so worth giving them your support I reckon.
Review added 25/11/2013 14:57 by CMWe had a take away pizza on Friday night - two normal pizzas and a little pizza for our son. My husband also treated us to a piece of cheesecake each. The food tasted nice but I think it was very expensive for small portions. My pizza was not a lot bigger than my son's piccolo pizza. The cheesecake slices were miniscule and we were charged £3.50 a time. Almost £30 later, and I kind of wish we'd made the effort to go to Marlow to Pizza Express or Zizzi. I appreciate that its local, and as I say it was nice. But when you can have a pizza delivered to your door for less...
Review added 25/11/2013 11:00 by Stuart HWent for a pizza with the family last night, food was great, staff (I think her name was Charlotte) were excellent
Review added 24/11/2013 08:58 by anonExcellent, generous sized pizzas lots of topping.House wine very nice. Busy last night good to have this in Cookham, we needed it. Will be going again.
Review added 17/11/2013 21:43 by anonSo now they have installed a wood fired pizza oven and are open in the evenings, including Sunday. I tried a Pepperoni pizza to go and enjoyed it - it's a thin crust Italian style and possibly a touch more pepperoni would be good, but I'll mention that next time. Otherwise it was very nice and it's great to now have a bit more takeaway choice in Cookham Rise.
Review added 16/04/2013 16:22 by AaronI go here for my lunch quite regularly, the staff are extremely friendly and will even deliver to our work as a gesture of kindness!
Review added 22/02/2013 11:31 by Andy ReidThis is one of my favourite places. The staff have always been welcoming and the food it a cut above your standard cafe. Interesting teas, and typically filled with polite and friendly people.
Review added 21/02/2013 15:20 by anonI have only just been made aware of the recent posts and wouldn’t want anyone to think we don’t care about the comments posted here because I can assure you we do. We value all feedback and will always use it to try to improve our service. I would like to take this opportunity to respond to some of the comments:
Review added 21/02/2013 14:38 by AnonFamily, their not family of his whoever you are below
Review added 05/02/2013 14:05 by anonI agree, the chef should have kitchen wear.he seems half asleep and is quite happy to let his family take over the cafe at times. Just very unprofessional all round really,food veryvery expensive for the standered it is.HOW MUCH FOR A SAUSAGE SANDWICH???!are the staff there properly trained i wonder
Review added 04/02/2013 20:42 by It's ok.Had lunch here, sandwich and drink, it was ok, nothing special, chef could look a bit more 'uniformed' to go with the title of chef. Always full of mums, some more palatable than others, could got to a local pub and probably pay the same but for a better quality.
Review added 09/01/2013 15:42 by GazzettaI suppose the alternative would be to have boarded up commercial premises. Hmmm sounds like Maidenhead.
Review added 08/01/2013 15:21 by Still annoyedWas the heat of the moment anger, I still think its not acceptable to slate members of staff that work there.. It's just childish and my opinion is that it's not dirty compared to some places we have in the area thanks..
Review added 08/01/2013 13:18 by Not annoyed but wiseRather annoyed is also rather common. This IS the place for people to air their views, good or bad. Using the 'F' word just makes me think that if you are the type of person to be friends with the chef(use the term lightly as we do not see any certificates) then i am glad my family and myself go elsewhere. The place is very dirty and the food very overpriced and over rated. I have told the owner this on two occasions and its the lack of action that has made up my mind NOT to return.
Review added 07/01/2013 18:04 by MaryIs this really the place to slate people clearly trying to make a living for their families? I think not. Your not in a school playground now im pretty sure there is a more 'grown up' complaints procedure! I visit the cafe regulary and enjoyed my time in there i found the manager and staff very friendly yes it was expensive but worth it for a treat! We all have opinions and mine is positive about cookham deli. So i suggest anyone wanting to slate people to go report to the manager! I would recommend the deli as a lovely treat the staff are very polite and smiley& a smile goes a long way!
Review added 07/01/2013 17:04 by mikethe chef hasnt been given uniform from the manager so its not his fault, dont blame him
Review added 07/01/2013 16:46 by rather annoyedi just thought id let you posh snobs know that im very good friends with the chef and waitress in the cafe and they are lovely people!! They get up early every day to cook you breakfast yet all you can do is complain and be bitchy on here behind there backs saying the waitress is clueless, hmm clearly and that the chef is drunk?! Shut the fuck up please.. If you have any problems why dont you speak to the manager! Clearly the cafe is good if your having to wait for your food, the chef cant help being busy and having to cook meals on his own. It hurts me to read such disgusting comments! When i visit the deli i think its a lovely small place to grab some food, it is clean may not be spanking clean but at least its clean enough! If you dont like it i really suggest you tell the manager and keep your dirty comments to yourself and eat elsewhere!!!
Review added 04/01/2013 13:34 by anonEven the windows are filthy. I realise the owner just wants money in his pocket, but should at least abide by health and safety regs. Surely the 'chef' should wear a hair net and aprons etc? YUK
Review added 04/01/2013 06:20 by PaulieWe also went to treat ourselves at the 'deli'(does the owner/staff even know what one is?) we got as far as the door. The place needs closing down and scrubbing from top to bottom. Very dirty. Chef no protective clothes or hair net,just looked a lttle bit dazed and/or drunk, waitress looked clueless.prices extortionate,how on earth has the owner come to these prices one must ask.awfull yummy mummies with their awfull spoilt children make the place seem so much worse too.never going to bother again, kings arms for us in future. I often wonder if the owner looks at these comments and if he/she would act upon them. Who knows? Maybe someone should point them in this generall direction.
Review added 03/01/2013 21:02 by Hungry & AnnoyedLuxurious lunchtimes come few and far between .. Today was the ideal opportunity to steal about 45 minutes with my husband and children to meet up and have a bite to eat.
Review added 08/10/2012 10:09 by KateWent for our weekly yomp round Cookham on Saturday, ending as usual at the Station Hill cafe for coffee and a meal. We know it closes at 3.30pm so planned accordingly. Arrived at 2.40pm to be told the kitchen had closed already because it was quiet! No food available even though chef was still there keeping his head down in the background. Not much point planning to eat there if you can't know the kitchen closing time before you arrive. Unreliable opening times are one sure way to kill your trade stone dead. Our custom is certainly lost I'm afraid, which is a shame.
Review added 01/10/2012 15:54 by anonNot being from the area I popped into the Deli,
Review added 03/09/2012 13:53 by anonUsed to be fairly good when it first opened some time ago.
Review added 09/06/2012 18:08 by anonI went once for breakfast, although the food was ok (average) it was quite expensive. About double the price of anywhere else locally. Staff were helpful but did mess around alot and were loud which was annoying a few of the customers!
Review added 29/11/2011 12:50 by GeorgeGreat for a family lunch as they provide high chairs & warm-up milk/puree for little ones. In terms of food, the bacon brie and cranberry sandwiches are the best around. But for me it's their homemade burgers in a toasted bun. Seriously good!
Review added 17/09/2011 11:31 by Christine JannettaThe opening hours of this establishment are awful as it closes at 16.00 hours and also closes on bank holidays when the village is generally full of visitors, looking for somewhere to have a coffee and a light snack. When open, the service is often flat and lacking in an air of welcome!
Review added 24/05/2011 20:29 by Station Hill CafeWe appreciate this is a review service, but wanted to announce that Station Hill Cafe is not open for evening service from this week for personal reasons. We really appreciate the support and kind reviews from everyone who has dined with us over the past 6 weeks - it has been a pleasure to serve you all. We may well open in the evenings again at some future point. The daytime opening is not affected. Thanks All at Station Hill Cafe
Review added 20/05/2011 22:10 by montyOnce again been to station hill. Food was great and service gooos, Try it it is good.
Review added 15/05/2011 08:44 by MontyWent last night to Station Hill for meal. Lovely food, good service well worth a visit.
Review added 28/04/2011 18:30 by AlI came here to eat three weeks ago - and had a delicious moules mariniere. My verdict: shockingly good food, shocklingly good price. A very pleasant surprise: I'll be bringing numbers with me - hope they can cope ;-)
Review added 15/04/2011 17:51 by montyI read article on the above on Cookham Crier. I cannot praise the food and service enough at the Station Hill Cafe. We went there two weeks ago and had a lovely meal with really good service. Give yourselves a treat and try it, it is worth it.
Review added 09/04/2011 18:41 by RoseI went to the Station Hill Deli with a group of friends last night. (Evening menus on Friday and Saturday). We were all impressed with the delicious three course meal. The staff were efficient and friendly, and the atmosphere was relaxed and intimate. Loved the pretty decor. Very reasonable prices.Will definitely will go again.
Review added 02/04/2011 07:52 by MontyMy husband and I went to Station Hill Cafe last night for a meal. It was absolutely lovely. Lovely menu, good service good price. Will definitely go again. Give yourselves a treat and try it.
Review added 11/04/2009 21:04 by RobertWonderfully prepared food. Delightful staff and management. Delicious homemade cakes and bakery traets. Sandwiches and bagguetes top class with lovely fillings. Overall one of the best "Deli's" in Cookham
Review added 04/03/2009 22:52 by AnnieHave been going in the past few morning for coffee and sandwiches. The coffee is excellent and the sandwiches are delicious with lovely fillings. Well recommended
Review added 15/02/2009 16:23 by ajGreat to see the deli back open again, under new management. Had scrambled eggs and salmon with toast on Saturday and for £4.50 you couldn't fault it; perfectly prepared, creamy scrambled eggs with a generous helping of salmon, toast was crisp, nicely buttered and hot. It's the simple things that are hard to get right, so clearly the staff are on top of things. They're nice and friendly too. Some lovely looking home-baked cakes which I must check on on my next visit.
