Called in with a group of 10 or 11 car club members out on a drive on Queens Birthday. Got there around 11.30 and were shown to a table. I had been there once before (with another car club)and was unimpressed with how long the tables received their orders (like 40 minutes from ordering) Anyway thought it may have changed so give them another go.
All good until time to pay the bill, we stood in line with our various amounts of money to pay for our coffee or teas. The couple in front of us trying to pay by credit card which obviously was not working. We stood in line for 5 minutes or a tad more waiting...waiting...waiting.. just to pay some money. In the end the chap with the problem credit card offered to pay cash.
"No No" said the lady behind the jump, I will keep trying, which she did for another 3 or four minutes.
FINALLY....she took the cash. My turn ...I said what table we were on and said I will pay for a cappuccino thanks, She then had the account in her hand looked at me as though I had two heads and said sorry no split bills.
WHY NOT???? She has the bill surely she can cross off each beverage as it was paid for...
RESULT. 10 people fiddling around trying to work out who pays for what who gets change etc etc and this took another 4 or 5 minutes, with other people now waiting.
So it's ok for us to wait way more then 5 minutes with the problem credit card, and then a schomozle while we all tried to work out the correct money. Thats what a till/cash register is for I would have thought.
I hate this "No bill splitting" stuff. Why would you do that?????
Anyway result is next drive we do down the peninsula we will still visit Arthurs Seat, but have our coffees and cake down with the shops on the beach.
Twice bitten there now so the two car clubs I help organise runs for will not be back
