Had to wait in queue for table for a long time despite having a table booked. Service was quite slow which meant it was not possible to complete our lunch within the allotted one hour. Have visited the cafe 3 times since reopening after lockdown and this was the first time have experienced any issues. Generally I prefer the table service To the previous self service. The Covid safety proceedures are excellent.

I feel really safe coming here (2nd time) and really appreciate all the thought and effort that has been put into making the experience safe for customers. The booking system is an excellent idea. My only comments would be that it would be worthwhile to indicate that there is a queue for those who do not have reservations and indicate to those who have booked that they should come to the top of the queue (or join a separate queue). Perhaps a sign needed to tell people with reservations to go a different direction or speak to the hostess? Also, we got taken promptly to our seats but they weren’t socially distanced. The chair was at a right angle to the bench seating and the place settings set accordingly. I didn’t mind because I felt safe with the friend I was with, but I think there should be at least 1 metre between seats, rather than only about 30-50cm. . I also felt that I might have had tea and a desert if 1) the order had been taken quicker and food arrived quicker plus 2) after finishing dinner, a staff member had come over to see if we wanted a second course. We did have a member of staff check with us that our main course was ok but after that we didn’t see anyone until I had to call someone over to ask to pay for the bill. Checking more frequently with customers might be something to consider as there is only a one hour stay, so a rapid order is important and a check after the meal is ending would be worthwhile so customers can order more food if they want. Despite all I’ve said, it is the best of the dining experiences I’ve had since COVID and I do plan to be back.

Service was absolutely appalling. We were told that we only had an hour at the table which was fine. However it took the staff over 20 mins to actually take our order. We had to ask someone to order and they said “no one told me you were there”. Just not good enough. The order then arrived incorrect. From start to finish was just a disaster. Staff didn’t come near the table at any time. Had to constantly wave them down to get any service. Lots of staff standing doing nothing yet people waiting to order or for their bill. Wouldn’t be back

A frequent customer especially for a coffee and a scone but your "Eat Out" evening opportunities were a welcoming experience - lovely friendly staff, atmosphere was fine and food delicious.

Bearing in mind that we were under the current C-19 conditons this was a very well organised and pleasant experience. A much needed relaxing event for my husband and I.

have been a Colemans customer for a number of years. The standard has always been VERY high and staff are wonderful. On entering the premises in these worrying times I feel comfortable in the premises with all the precautions that have put in place.

We had a lovely dining experience and Daniel our waiter was excellent in his service and attention to detail. Our food was cooked to our preference. We had the ribeye steak and it was very nice. We will definitely return again.

Steak night ~ second time; this time as party of 4. Food was excellent with all steaks cooked as ordered. Desserts beautiful. Our waitress, Bronte, explained everything carefully and comprehensively. She checked several times all was ok. Thoroughly enjoyed by all of us. Clear signage and plenty of sanitizer. We felt safe

We went to the steak night twice. Both times the steaks were cooked to perfection. The staff were attentive. Really good value for money at £30 per couple with a bottle of wine and a soft drink. Well done team Colemans 😄
