rip off cafes-name and shame!
Bit controversial, but Pete’s Eats:
Sometimes good, mostly awful, depending on which 6th former is manning the George Foreman.
Last time it was chips like a corpse’s fingers, cold beans, sausages that a starving dog would have curled it’s lip at, swimming in grease and served with burnt toast.
And no caff, anywhere should serve that horrible, synthetic cheese substitute nonsense.
Go five minutes up the road and try Y Caban at Brynrefail – superb.Posted 5 years agobobbyspanglesMember
how do these people get away with charging what they do for the god awful food that they seem to serve?
i feel strapped to a barrel sometimes being force fed their rubbish while a maniacal business owner whips me with a sock full of the fat profits that they have made from over charging and under serving the gullible sheep we seem to have become when it comes to consuming.
i give you and example:
the national herb centre-warmington.
£6 for a pannini i.e posh toastie.
This was served up to my surprise as an extremely thin what i can only describe as ‘bread cigarillo’! 1 tomato sliced like the garlic slicing scene in Goodfellas, half a teaspoon of darkly dubious pesto with 1 pathetically roasted pepper peeked half drowned outside of my arse of a sandwich.
have you ever experienced a truly awful cafe? i bet you have….Posted 5 years agospacemonkeyMember
An experience at the Cwmcarn cafe made me laugh a few years ago. A mate ordered ‘burger and chips’ for something like £3.50. Sounded like a bargain until the matronly waitress delivered a handful of chips and a burger (yes, just a burger – no bap or anything else) the size of a small cookie. Oh, how we chuckled. Always best playing safe with a jacket potato in those sorts of place.Posted 5 years agoJImmAwelonMember
Well now that the Conwy Falls cafe has been mentioned I think I can say that they appear on this list of a few North Wales venues to avoid, including One Planet at Llandegla too:
Now that was just a snap shot of the situation when the man from the council visited so any of these may have sorted their venue out by now.Posted 5 years ago
It does show that you can ride on a good bacon sarnie review for too long though!crazy-legsSubscriber
However Grizedale would be one to miss portions of cake are so thin and the supervisor is a battle axe after I complained!
I’ve always found the new place at Grizedale to be very good. Long queues sometimes though.
Laggan cafe for me was the worst one of the trail centre cafes that I can remember. The food was actually pretty decent once the woman could be bothered stopping her conversation to come and serve me.
She was having a rant to some bloke in there (FC maybe?) about how things there were dire and how she was struggling by, I was thinking “well come and serve me, I’m standing here trying to give you money” Even when she was serving me she carried on her rant to him. So rude.Posted 5 years agodogbertMember
£6 for a pannini i.e posh toastie.
reminds me of my mate at work, weeg as you like, hilarious guy. Goes into sandwich shop in toffy nosed area of Edinburgh, asks for a cheese and ham pannini, the wife behind the counter remarks in a condescending tone “we don’t sell cheese and ham, we can do brie and parma ham” – to which he replies “right then, i’ll have a Brie Cheese and Parma Ham Pannini……and it better be **** ing toastie” (he was ejected)Posted 5 years agorogerthecatMember

Is Grindleford Cafe in the Peak still going? Always pre and post cragging bacon sarne and pint mug of tea. Not been for 10 years or more.
Yep but the miserable old git who ran it and stuck all the warning notices has pegged, he was the best entertainment in the area. Cafe still there and still open -run by a nice bunch and food/cost ok.Posted 5 years agoBunnyhopSubscriber
The ‘Conwy Falls cafe’ has changed hands and was really quite good when we visited last year, however I don’t know if that report was made out before or after we ate there.
Agree about the ‘Woodbine’ in Hope. Over priced and that awful women who runs it needs to go on a customer care course.
Agree with Carlos – the new cafe at the ‘Roman Lakes’ is lovely, although the service is often a little slow at certain times.Posted 5 years ago
