“Not "Berry" Good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

I would class this as more of a cafe than a restaurant. The signs to the restaurant in the maze of a place just stop and you have to find your own way. There were three hapless staff serving behind the counter and more in the kitchen behind. We were the only two at the counter ordering brunch but yet it took half an hour to order a bacon sandwich, veggie breakfast (not advertised), tea and latte. The latte completely perplexed the young lad who then abandoned us to serve someone else before we could pay - two other people were served and paid before us! If I hadn't been standing for so long with a broken foot, it might have been comical. When I turned to walk to my seat the queue behind was very very long. We then waited an awfully long time for our food, by which time our tea and coffee were cold. When the food finally arrived, the bread for the bacon sandwich was stale sliced plastic bread and only two rashers of bacon. The veggie breakfast was swimming in oil, one small pat of butter for barely cooked toast and cheap catering sauces. Not what you'd expect from a farm shop with a deli on the side. The cakes looked home made but having spent £12.45 on very mediocre food, we weren't prepared to pay more. This poor quality put us off spending any money in the food hall, which had been the whole purpse of this visit. Sadly we won't be returning.
