I absolutely LOVE Booths supermarkets, great quality food at good prices, excellent customer service.
Unfortunately this can not be said for the restaurant upstairs.
The cafe is a wonderful light , modern, airy space with such great potential to be a fantastic restaurant too. Unfortunately I can agree with other reviews regarding the dirty, uncleaned tables with plates piles high. In paricular the kids area. Such a great idea..seperate room, child friendly computers fixed to the walls, foam type seating with wooden circular tables. The very slow staff, seem to forget to go to that area to clean up and when and if they do, the tables are often then left dirty and the floor too. Personally I would never leave my plates etc in such a mess, obviously some people just don't care. But I think the waiting staff let the restaurant down.
I normally stick to a hot chocolate and maybe a cake when I come, which have always been fine. Recently I did order the brown shrimp on toast and thought it was very overpriced (just under 7 pounds) I think there must have been a dessert spoon of brown shrimp,on my toast, if I was lucky!! Sadly, the toast had cheap tasting margerine on it.
On a previous visits, I have had the sausage and mash, a full English, all very tasty and reasonably priced.
I visit regularly and when the shop first opened, I gave excuses as to why the tables were not being cleaned,maybe due to lack of training but the store has been open a while now and it is totally unexcusable. I do hope the management kick butts!! Don't let the rest of the store down.
