“Serious problems with service”
Reviewed January 26, 2008

We ate here in October, 2007. The service was very slow, not enough staff to service the number of tables in the restaurant. Food was fine, but the lack of enough staff to get water, coffee, drinks, clean off tables, etc. was significant enough to give them a bad review.

Went back in January 2008 to try it again. Service was even worse. Waited over 10 minutes to be noticed by wait staff, finally went to the cash register, asked them if we could be seated. Server told us she was too busy to do that, but finally told us to sit down at a table. After waiting for another 10-15 minutes for our coffee and drinks, we left. Had a nice lunch at the Hotel Bethlehem.

Great selection of teas, only tried the rhubarb crumble and not a bad attempt at a British dessert classic.
