Firstly, thanks for the review. We're sorry you weren't happy with the service you received. However, this happens so infrequently that we remember that it was merely coleslaw we had ran out of on this particular day and we're sorry that this caused an inconvenience for you. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday, Many thanks, Rainbow Corner... More
