“If you say your open till 4 your open until 4”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

Turned up with my wife at 15:00 hoping to get a bite to eat and a coffee, greeted by an older lady that looked at us as if we had just done a doo daa on her carpet.. She quickly told us that we could not eat but they have drinks.. I asked for a cappuccino , was shot down by, can't have that as they have just cleaned and switched off the machine.. If your open till a certain time, make sure your facilities are available until the end

“Poor Customer Service”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Popped in for a late lunch with my daughter, what a disappointment! We walked in just before 3pm and it clearly states on the door that it is open until 4pm, we were greeted with frosty stares and no sooner had we sat down the waitress came to take our order, at this point we hadn't had a chance to pick up the menu never mind look at it! We ordered our drinks and was asked if we were eating, we said we were at which point the waitress said 'I will come back but the kitchen closes at 3', at this point it was 3pm. She came back with our drinks and everything we tried ordering off the menu we were told they didn't have any left at which point my daughter said forget it we will go home and eat. We couldn't even buy anything from the deli to take home as they had already started to pack everything away! Why stay open until 4pm if the only thing you can get from 3pm is a drink? Their attitude was appalling and we were made to feel very uncomfortable, so sadly I will not be returning!

“was good now needs to do better”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

When Harry opened Chives the place was outstanding - now it seems a little lost and needs and kick up the backside to get the life back. Prices to high and MacDonalds offers better value and taste. The place need the old passion and 20% off the prices.

“Waiting Staff have Issues”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

I have eaten here on several occasions... there is no problem with the food they produce, far from it as we keep going back... but the biggest problem was the waiting staff (a women of a certain older age) she was just plain miserable,,, asking for a coffee / food was far too much trouble for her!!! no warm welcome just greeted by her miserable face.....
