Wesley Anne - lovely outside - grumpy service
It was a warm March night when the Cafe Club went to the Wesley Anne. One of our cohort is a regular at the place, loves, the atmosphere and the live music. Indeed she says it is one of her favourite places. It was Cait who got there first and made the wise decision to sit out in the rear garden. Not one of those chic courtyards to be found in other establishments, nor it is have the blokeishness of a beer garden. No this was a little bit of out door heaven, trees, tables, pagolas, and of all things a cruddy old caravan. Don't ask me why.
To get food you have to go inside and line up and say what you want, You pay individually and the food arrives as it is ready. This can lead to a rather disjointed mutual dining experience and not to be recommended for people who want to enjoy the feeling of sharing a meal with friends. You may get to watch your friend eat while you wait for your meal to arrive, but really that is not very satisfying, is it?
The food itself was passable and the price reasonable. Would I go back. Umm no don't think so - they just did not make us feel like valued customers. Rather we came away feeling disappointed that we had upset their evening by turning up and creating work. All very disappointing for Miss Gen Y -- as I said earlier it is (was?) one of her favourite places
