We should have done an about turn upon entering the premises. Externally it had looked fine.
The menu advertised £4-65 for a ham and cheese toastie. For that price, one expect a quality product using good carved ham and possibly artisan bread. Oh, no! What I received was a sandwich consisting of cheap 'Mothers Pride' style bread, a tiny scattering of cheese and economy thin sliced ham. If I had sought a salad dressing for the side, I would have been required to pay an extra £1. Inexplicably it took 30 minutes to cook up this awful lunch despite the tea room being quite.
The interior is filthy. We were sat next to a radiator that was covered by an encrustation of grease and builder's dust. The toilet had not been cleaned for a long while.
Disturbingly, when a member staff decided to clean nearby table tops. She used a dustpan and brush that had probably been used on the floor. I suspect that if this act had been witnessed by an Environmental Health Officer there would have been hell-to-pay.
