I have been patronising this bakery for some years . But now I can barely be bothered and really it is only the convenience factor that keeps me coming and that there are no nearby better options . As a bakery one would expect the pastry to be good . However recent disasters with a calzone and a Cornish Pasty have been the last straw . Almost unheard of for me but I really could not finish either bits of pastry . Nor were the contents very tasty either . A bacon and egg panini last week was a nightmare with almost 1 inch thick slabs of dry bread swamping the filling . Their coffees are no more than poor average , a shame as the beans are roasted on site . Serv ice can be very slow and the system of choosing a table first before ordering at the counter is very inconvenient and often ones chosen table is appropriated by the time one has finished ordering . It is all such a shame as with good direction and management the place could be a delight again as it used to be .
