“Terrible quality food”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Popped in for a quick bite to eat as we were starving and the exterior looked appealing. Very disappointing prawn sandwich - advertised as a prawn salad sandwich, this came on limp white processed bread, piled high with margerine and a horrible, tangy prawn cocktail, complete with crusts cut off. Half the plate was devoted to an enormous salad with no seasoning or dressing and a handful of crisps. Appalling presentation. Prawns spilling out all over the shop. I made the mistake of putting the Heinz vinaigrette provided, thus rendering my salad even more inedible. I left most of it. My partner's breakfast was better, but the eggs were raw, slimy and broken. When ordering was offered the choice of "real or tinned tomatoes" which we thought was funny to say the least. Considering how we were the only customers in the building, the food took a while to arrive. I ordered a glass of water which never came, and our filter coffee was cold. Our waiter was very sweet but clearly inexperienced and inefficient. One of the other members of staff was gormless and sullen. The other lady appeared to be doing most of the work. My partner being a chef and me being in the pub trade, we saw at a glance how poorly run this cafe was. Three members of staff for 2 customers is complete overkill, and they still couldn't provide a satisfactory experience. Didnt have any of the cakes, which did look very nice. With the wealth of quality venues offering food and drink in the area, this place really lets itself down. What a waste of a lovely premises.
