We visited the tearooms 12 months ago whilst on holiday and found the service poor.We thought this was probably a one off so tried it again whilst visiting Jersey this month but regretfully we were not impressed.
We initially sat outside but on getting no service I went inside to obtain some menus and the waiter said he would come and take our order.15 minutes went by and no sign of a waiter - in the meantime a couple on an adjacent tabel who had arrived before us and placed there order decided they could wait no longer and got up and left before their order arrived.
To overcome the problem we decided to go into the tearooms at which time the waiter said 'ah sorry I forgot you were waitng outside '.He promptly showed us to a table and to avoid further delays I placed our order before I got seated.Some 20 minutes later 2 very average cappucino's arrived.
This was mid morning and the tearooms did not appear particularly busy.The display of cakes and pastries look impressive and the decor and comfort is fine.As another reviewer mentioned you would expect better when paying £6 + for a slice of cake !
There was no evidence of a manager or manageress present and it did appear the staff did need some direction or motivation.
Doubtful if we will return again as there are plenty of other more tearooms in Jersey offering better service.
