We visited Penang Hill last week & after having a walk around my husband an myself made our way to David Brown's, it was 1pm & after a very hearty Hotel breakfast we were looking forward to a nice coffee or tea in this lovely setting.
We arrived & found we were the only customers there. As we entered a waitress looked towards us & my husband asked if we could have coffee, no she replied we are serving lunch! We couldn't manage lunch so we turned to leave, unfortunatley it started to rain very heavily & we found ourselves needing to take shelter, after 30 mins a nice man asked us to shelter inside. It was very windy & as there we no windows we became cold & would have loved a hot drink.
There were lots of staff around, 2 customers entered for lunch whilst we were there & there was a hot jug of coffee ready to go & we had money in our pockets...but no, not for us! We sat there for a very uncomfortable 1 hour & 15mins, but we were not able to spend any money, how very strange?!?
There was a break in the weather & we managed to leave, making our way to the food court near the funicular station, the locals there were very keen to serve us with 2 lovely hot cups of local tea!
We wouldn't recommend this establishment, which is very overated & from reading other reviews, we realised we had a lucky escape!!
