I visited Bruks today with business colleagus after we had read a number of good reviews, However we felt the food was not as good as a number of cafes in the vicinty, the service was average but ruined by the constant "Is everything alright" then followed by one of my colleagues being asked to write a good review on trip advisor. This was the last straw, i feel that the whole point of trip advisor and other review sights is for people to comment on their experiences as they see them and not being pressured by its owners/staff, allowing people who read these reviews an honest opinion. This makes a mockery of social media review sites. Anybody wishing to visit Bruks should do so without taking there high reviews with a pinch of salt. My colleagues and myself will certainly nt be revisiting this cafe and will not be recommending it to anyone else in fact I will be advising them of much better restaurants all within 5/10 minutes of the place to go to. Finally as far as the coffee goes there are dozens of cafes and restaurants in York which serve hot coffee withot rinds in the bottom of the cup,
