October Cafe and Late Bar Review

  • Rating Slow and slower (Rating 2.0/5)
    The best thing about this experience was the location on the top terrace in Princes Sq. We had booked afternoon tea but when we arrived the waitress gave us the lunch menu and started explaining what we could have. When I said we had booked afternoon tea she asked did we want that with coffee or prosecco - no tea was offered! I asked for tea and my friend for coffee. These were brought quickly but then we had to wait half an hour before the food arrived by which time the drinks were finished (or they would have been cold) and we were not offered replacements. The food platter was OK but nothing special - no choice offered in terms of sandwiches and no explanation of the fillings - all on boring white bread; a pleasant enough scone and two tiny bits of not the freshest ginger cake and brownie. After asking for the bill we had to wait ages for it to be brought and then nobody came to take the payment. I eventually had to go inside and pay at the bar. We were not offered the Glayva from the 5pm promo even tho' these had been requested at the time of booking and by the time I got someone to pay we had been there over two hours and it was too late.
