We arranged to meet friends and chose the Apothecary Cafe for our rendezvous.
Sadly it was lacking in many ways. Firstly the cafe back and front doors were wide open which meant a cold draught rushing through, so we closed it ourselves but it was opened again a few moments later by another member of staff. ( Don't forget thisis now a chlliy autumn day at 7degrees). Then we noticed the carpets hadn't been vacuumed and the table cloth had crumbs and had stains from the previous day. Finally our coffee was served Luke warm and no one asked us if all was ok, but if they had - we'd have told them about it.
We think this venue is trading onthe back of the location and doesn't really care about great service or hygiene.
Will NOT be going back any time soon.
