"Terrible Service ... a pity"

A review of CB2 by Sensei written on Friday 5th of September 2008


We went in for coffee and afternoon snacks before we went back to the car.

My partner wanted a coffee and I didn't actually know, but would like to have selected something.

We went in and a waitress wouldn't let us sit where we wanted to, we ended sit inamongst booming speakers and could barely hear ourselves think. She then walked off.

Another one showed up after I requested a menu, it was slapped on the table and she walked off. We eventually got one of them back and ordered a coffee (plain black coffee, no milk (they used to do soya) and a mixed juice.)

When it arrived (slapped down on the table, sloshed all over my handbag), we were both heartily fed up of the radio 1 thumpy thumpy music and moved to the nice paved area (sadly with the smokers)

We then dsicovered my non-alcohol cocktail had been made with completely flat lemonade and my partners coffee was a double expresso.

When we asked for the bill we were roundly ignored so my partner went up to pay and pointedly gave a note and took all the change.

Never again, pity because we enjoyed it before..
