Never been so disappointed the starter was so poor the pizzas were Luke warm and the sweet we sent back absolute rubbish no wonder it was empty
Went to café mode, Dury Lane for pre show dinner on 10 Nov 2014. What a disaster! There were 6 in our party on a birthday celebration. The staff's English was not brilliant. We ordered, and after 45 min our main course arrived.[we had skipped starters] It was luke warm ! We sent back 4 out of 6 meals. The 2 meals that were accepted were Lasagne which in my opinion were not nearly hot enough, but our guests did not want to make a fuss. The second attempt arrived some 25 mins later. Should not have bothered! The Pizza had been put in a microwave so was now soggy and not really hot. It also did not have the correct not having topping. The other 3 meals which were burgers and chips had been replaced but again were not remotely hot or appetising. By now it was 7 pm with the show beginning at 7.30.We asked for the bill, paid a percentage ,told them their food was rubbish and left. There was another customer disputing the bill, they had also sent back their meal and the second meal was just as cold. I told them to pay the amount they thought it was worth in cash and leave.
My guess is that the food is not being prepared on the premises, its too cold and this would account for the long wait.
Would I go back?
Not if wild horses tried to drag me.
