we were charged extra tom sit in an awful empty restaurant and not told that we would be or given the option not to! It was cold and the food was awful - a rip off and we've never been back.

I recently went to the royal mail cart after hearing some good reviews about it, however, after reading the bad reviews about the quality of service, I totally agree! We had to wait almost 15 mins for the plates to be cleared from the table after waitress' had seen we had finished! Once they had cleared the table, they took another further 15 mins to ask if we would like a desert! Once we got the desert it was under cooked and the serving of cream was very stingey!

However! The guy doing the cavery was a very friendly guy and asked if we where okay with the amount of meat he had cut!

Overall it was very poor service and very unorganised! But the cavery was very nice!

To top it all off, the woman at the till, who also happened to be the manager was VERY rude. Not once did she smile, she was very quiet and didn't even ask if we had a good meal or anything similar!

Very poor customer service, reasonable foor but apart from that I would NOT suggest it to anyone!!

We ate here on the 2nd Feb. The service was lovely, the food was absolutely delicious. We had a child with us with special dietary needs and the 'manager' was really helpful, made us feel so welcome and we will certainly come here again and recommend it to other's.
