We parked in Holdenhurst Road in order to go to the shops but fancied a coffee so called into The Parlour and wish we hadn't bothered.
It was around 4.30pm and there were three other people in the place so it looked deserted as it is a large space with a mix of tables and modern decor.
The girl on the till seemed less than pleased at our arrival and took our order which was an Americano coffee an Earl Grey tea and a cookie. She had some trouble with the till but eventually it got sorted.
Another girl brought our drinks and said that they closed at 5pm.
The tea they brought was not Earl Grey but ordinary tea which was pretty useless service considering the simple order.
They do offer a selection of food from panini's to burgers but they mainly seem to sell ice cream.
About ten minutes to five the waitress came back again to tell us that they closed at 5pm, clearly she thought that we were slow learners and had not got her message the first time. We felt really cross as clearly they just wanted us to leave and given a couple more minutes we would have left when we were ready.
Leave we did and never to return.
