Visited Churchills today for a breakfast

Breakfast stone cold x 2
Had to ask for Hash Browns that meant come with breakfast
portion size poor
Had to wait for cutlery after breakfast put on table
No butter for toast again had to ask...then came frozen

whole experience was a joke!!

We walked out after complaining to manager, His response was " Well no other breakfast were cold today" Well both mine and my partners was!! felt his response was poor

We walked out churchills and walked to bottom of steephill to café called " Modern Classics" café...amazing see review

We apologise sincerely for the level of service adhered to at the time of your visit. This is not the norm, and a combination of factors contributed to your dissatisfaction including our normal chef not being present on this day. I can assure you that had you allowed me to rectify the issue, I would have done so immediately. Unfortunately as you walked out immediately without paying you gave me little time to fix it!

“Meet up with friends at my choice of venue”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

I arrived early. No problem as I ordered a coffee whilst waiting friends arrival. This enabled me to people and staff watch whilst friends arrived.
Later order taken. All ok except for mine which for some reason was mistaken for another very similar order on the menu. This was sorted out as soon as it arrived.
I will go again and try it out at a different time of day to get another opinion.

“Tasteless coffee”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

Had a coffee stop with a friend here, she had been for breakfast before & really enjoyed it. We just ordered coffee and it was so tasteless you would struggle to define it from tea, very weak & luke warm. Disappointing really as you expect a good cuppa.

“Brilliant as usual”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

Been here a few times now and have always had the same great experience. We took the dog this time and sat outside, staff immediately offered us a water bowl for the dog which was great. Food was fast and very enjoyable as usual and service was brilliant, staff are all very friendly. Prices are fantastic too, not sure you could get the same anywhere else for the same price. Will continue to stop here when walking up the high street
