We arrived about ten minutes as they were setting up. We were invited in to sit and wait out of the cold. The staff arrived and were a bit slow at getting started. We ordered breakfasts. When mine arrived the bacon was dry as if it had been reheated. The staff were not switched on to serving customers. This needs resolving before they loose too many customers. We will give them another try at a later date but if the bad service is repeated we will cross them of our venue list.

We stopped in for Lunch - the place was not busy but no one greeted us when we arrived. The waiting staff didn't make eye contact even though there were 5 of them milling around behind the bar/counter talking to each other. We were left to find our own table.

I noticed all of the staff were wearing very trendy microphones and ear pieces and there was a 'front of counter' person, but he was also talking to the other staff. Nobody seemed to be managing the 'front of house'.

We found a table not too far from the bar and our food and drinks order was taken quickly at the table. At this point the 'front of counter' person came to the table and asked if everything was ok (and at that point it was). Our drinks were delivered to the table and then another waiter came to take our order again. He was surprised when we told him our order had already been taken by one of his colleagues.

Whilst waiting for our food, I noticed the man from a couple sat to our side, approach the counter after being served their food and he ask for knives and forks. The waiting staff appeared surprised the couple did not already have cutlery.

Our food arrived after approximately 15 minutes. The food, I have to say, was excellent and well presented.

After finishing our meal we waited for someone to clear our plates and to offer dessert and coffee. Unfortunately none of the 5 waiting staff approached, they were again busy talking amongst themselves behind the counter. We tried to catch someone's eye but all avoided eye contact.

Eventually, after many minutes, we went to the bar and paid. We mentioned the fact that we would have liked dessert and coffee and the member staff apologised and offered those items. We declined and left.

In summary - The food was excellent. The place is let down by staff who don't appear to have any 'front of house' management and who don't appear to have any regard for the customer.

Millry's is successful probably because of the quality of food rather than the service given to customers by the waiting staff.

What should have been a pleasant experience was spoiled.

Cafe/restaurant situated adjacent to the canal, ideal if on a walk as a stopover. Serving excellent coffee, with the availability for light snacks and main meals. Worth a visit.

Fabulous from start to finish. Staff wonderful food very good and the Band (The Heat) were exceptional. All in all one heck of a night out. Many thanks to James and his staff and especially the band.
