I would not rate this even one star if there was an option ..
Around 15:40 we stopped at the Lamppost cafe to grab a little something , as I know coffee shop closes at 4 pm , we only purchased some crisps , soft drink , ice lolly and my 5 year old daughter requested her favourite carrot cake ( let's just say our family ALWAYS support local / independent businesses , so did we supported lamppost from the minute it was opened even with some significant flaws and we are not dog owners either ) !
I asked to the girl at the till can we still sit down and have the cake even though they are closing shortly !? ( keep in mind - cafe was still busy with customers )
The girl kindly replied - yes of course you can but we only serve in take away dishes ( paper plate but fork wasn't a take away btw ) , which I said that's fine with us ..
as we approached the table and was about to sit down -
- THE OWNER was right there in a heartbeat to tell us off - he said I'm sure you was informed that it's only take away at this time !
- Well , not really , we was told we can finish the cake like a civilised people with a fork not on the muddy grass in the Fields of Burrs in January ! I asked so where shall my daughter have her cake !? Outside !!?
After his telling of and humiliation I was just totally shocked and speechless , we left the cake on the table untouched and we left - wow , what an abrupt , rude man !
Judge for yourself people - what kind of a person , a grown man , don't let 5 year old girl to have her cake ( it was 15:40 ) ❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️
Honestly , in my entire life I have never ever experienced something as rude like this !!!
Good Luck with your business MR HOSPITALITY
