I cut to the important food - cake. Famous banoffee pie was more dessert than pie but formidably gorgeous. As was my other half's monster open seafood sandwich. Devoured them both with equal relish.

Found this place by accident and decided to have lunch. Although the cafe was very busy as it was a Sunday afternoon, a young woman (one of the owners) was keeping everyone on their toes and was ensuring that all the customers were seated and served efficiently. I can honestly say that I was served up the best BLT I have ever tasted and let the chef know! Will definitely be back.

Had Breakfast in here one Sunday. The staff were clearly under pressure and the food was very greasy. Would not recommend.

Hello Jallybongo,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of Brambles and I apologise that you were unhappy with the food and service.
It is very unusual for Brambles to receive a terrible score of 1/5 and hence a private message was made to determine the date of your experience and thank you for your reply. The date in question was Sunday 2nd March and I can agree that we did have a staff shortage this day due to unforeseen circumstances and this issue has now been rectified.
I am somewhat perplexed that if your experience was so terrible that you never said anything at the time, if you had, we could have tried to rectify the problem.

Jallybongo, you mentioned that you were "disappointed with your experience of Brambles this time around". Does this mean that you have been in Brambles before and had a good experience? If so, did you not feel the need to leave a positive review from another occasion?

A well known etiquette in life is to praise in public and reprimand in private.

Many thanks,
Victoria (Director)
