“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

I go there often mainly for doing work as internet and laptop charging plugs are available. Service is so so, as stated in previous reviews. Though little crowded during mid-day, sofas are probably best in town for relaxing (and look at the world passing by the road) and best place to get some work done (you need earplugs) for the reasons above.

“Good coffie poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

I have been to cafe Nero on several occasions. The coffie is good but the service is very slow.
The staff are very polite but don't don't seem in any hurry to make coffies or clear the tables even when the que is out the door.
Due to this I go to Costa which is on the other side of town.
I have heard that Costa is moving to a unit across the road from Cafe Nero and believe they will loose a lot of business if they don't improve.

“Must try harder!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013 via mobile

I like Cafe Nero but the Witney branch is not up to scratch at all.

Tried it a few times with the same experience on each occasion. Slow service (often as the staff are chatting amongst themselves), dirty tables as they are very slow to clear and not managing their stock either as three trips on a row the white chocolate latte (I think) was not available.

I believe Costa are just about to relocate opposite so you need to step up your game Nero. Stronger management required to crack the whip on the service skills me thinks!

I shall give you another chance though, the coffee is good.
