So I was a bit shocked to see a two star rating being dished out. And judging by the actual review they have an axe... More

I do wish if you were not happy with anything you could have advised me as we always aim to make our customers happy. Slightly concerned though that you thought our tea prices were expensive as only £1.10 for Fair Trade Tea and also as we do not use streaky bacon only A1 locally sourced back bacon which we sell...
