We chose to break a long journey home at Tetbury as we had on the outward journey. Unfortunately it was a Monday [7thApril] and Tetbury seems to shut on Mondays. However it was lunchtime and we needed refreshments and Quayles looked like a nice enough place. We found a table, sat down and perused the menus and made choices whilst a polite young man cleared the table. So far so good. A man who I took to be the manager appeared from the back of the cafe finishing off a phone call. A couple of minutes later he came across to our table, not to take our order as we expected, but to inform us that he was keeping the table for someone who had gone away for a few minutes and was coming back when it was free. He pointed out some high bar stools in the window. This is no way to treat potential customers. If a table is reserved, it should have a reserved sign clearly on it and all staff should be aware of the situation. We carried on to Cirencester for our lunch and probably won't bother to pitstop at Tetbury again. This is a shame as it has some very nice shops.
