“Definitely one of the worst starbucks I've ever visited”

Starbucks--Old Bond Street
Ranked #37 of 45 Coffee & Tea in Bath
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 6, 2013

I never go in here unless I'm desperate and everytime they outdo themselves on the rubbish scale! The seating is horrendous, loads of little tables and chairs crammed next to each other, it's always dirty with crumbs and cups everywhere but strangely it's always jam packed with people. What I don't understand is why they have this huge bar thing in the middle of the shop and shelves of merchandise taking up loads of room when they could put more chairs and tables in (which they clearly need). Upstairs the tables and chairs are all higgledy piggledy and it's a really uninviting and ugly setup. Not cosy at all. Anyway the last 2 times I visited I was drawn in by their over priced Christmas drinks ( I never learn) and both times they managed to mess up my order and attempt to overcharge me resulting in complaints to head office both times. Don't even think about using the toilets. Avoid at all costs!

I really enjoy a cup of Pike Place brewed coffee from Starbucks... Living in Sweden were we have only a hand full of Starbucks, I sure go in and order the same blend of coffee were ever I am in the world. Even in Egypt I got a pike place and a slice of Lemon drizzle cake. In the average Starbucks shop, usually there is a newspaper a sofa and most if not all offer free wifi internet. All those things are standard...But why is often or not the biggest down fall is hygiene this is this shops biggest down fall, great staff great coffee and great cakes but very very dirty. The up stairs soft chairs and tables are terrible the floors are to dirty even for rats to eat off. I'll take my business to somewhere else down the road. Because when I asked a member of staff to clean the table she asked if we could clean it because she was busy, being a week before the christmas rush.

Visited over Christmas and would never have reviewed a Starbucks - they are all the same. However, this one stood out for being extremely dirty! It adnt particularly busy, but the plentiful staff seemed too preoccupied to tidy away empty mugs and sweep away crumbs. It was overall, a grubby place and not a nice experience.

I start all my Starbucks reviews like this – the food and drink is all the same - that’s why I go there! As such, I will only mention the quality of the food and drink if it is unusually good or bad. Generally, my review will focus on the atmosphere, location, layout and staff quality.
This store has a great first floor dining room, which is a real highlight. Roomy and open, the first floor is a relaxing spot to enjoy your coffee and/or meal. The staff were friendly and efficient, serving up standard Starbucks fare. I enjoyed this Starbucks as the atmosphere was very relaxed and casual. Great little cafe!
