Anzac Day 2016. Dropped in for afternoon coffee & cake, we were sat at a table that had not been cleared. We noticed a lot more empty tables still waiting to be cleared that had a growing number of flies hanging around. After 15 to 20 minutes we left as it was just too dirty to eat around and staff numbers were just too short to handle the amount of customers already there. Shame really as we normally drop in on a casual Sunday with no issue. Having another staff member clearing and cleaning the tables will only increase your business.
