“Very poor cafe service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

As one other reviewer has pointed out, the cafe and cheese take away sales need to be separated. We had a 15 minute wait standing in the line to order lunch due to the people in front of us were ordering cheese's to take home. By the time we got ordered the kitchen had closed.
After all that we ordered a cheese platter which were already prepared but it took another 20 minutes for them to take the glad wrap off and bring it out after I complained.
Lots of staff milling around but not very attentive to customers.
Also you can't see the cheese factory workings and only a shop front.

We've been working hard to improve our time frames at peak times. Thanks however for the feedback and we will be talking to the team about improving there service precisely at that time when things are so busy. We are also investing substantially in a new POS system so that there are twice as many service areas.
Hope you can visit us then!

“Nice cheese based meals but Raclette needs more ......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Four of us went for lunch, three chose raclette which was lovely but needed more pickles ie onion / gherkin. One chose Caramelised Onion and 3 cheese tart which was served with a side salad and delicious. Purchased the Buffalo Brie and Wasabi Cheddar which is devine. Would recommend for lunch - did not go to see cheese process.

Thanks so much for the positive feedback. So sorry we didn't have the opportunity to serve you with a few more gherkins and onions with the raclette dish you had ordered. I'll be talking to our cafe cooking team and seeing if we can add just a few of these for all our guests. Thanks for letting us know!
