Go here every week shopping in Waitrose. The service is very slow most of the staff serving seem unconcerned even bored with their jobs. Come on John Lewis you can do better! Only 3 people. In queue all tutting and sighing one person serving everything & making coffee. Clearly need 2 staff on duty!

Pretty dismal eating here. We queued up at a lunch time, with a 10 minute wait, and before we knew the sign was up saying it would be longer. Ok, but we'd already ordered. And then we waited and waited and waited. Then my best friends food arrived, but incomplete.. Then we waited a bit longer.. And a it longer... More

Breakfasts, lunch or a large cake and tea selection... All have a good selection. The staff are pleasant and friendly, food is good quality.... A good experience.

Still disappointing. Despite being open for three years now this is still a facility that fails to deliver on many levels. Unbelievably slow service, and some very dirty tables. The over riding memory of eating here is the astonishing length of time it takes to get to the service till to give your order, (20 feet from the counter is... More

Wouldn't it be lovely to pop into this cafe for a quick coffee and a flick through a newspaper. Forget it. This is a nice looking place, but I have yet to be able to get in to this restaurant for the simple reason that the counter service is so desperately slow and inefficient. Is there no manager with any... More

John Lewis is a fantastic place to shop but the cafe leaves much to be desired - too slow by the time one has the coffee on the tray all desire for coffee has long since vanished.We recently visited the Ipswich branch where the cafe is shared between waitrose and john lewis and it just doesn't work as too many...

Going around John Lewis is a very enjoyable experience, especially if you want a really nice present. All extremely good quality, and just slightly different. The staff are incredibly helpful, and nothing is too much trouble, then afterwards go and have some light refreshment in the restaurant. The porridge for breakfast is really delicious.

Nice atmosphere comfy seats(if you get there first). Sometimes a bit of a wait. Only wish it was easier to get a Gluten Free meal. Great for coffee.

We decided to have a cup of tea mid afternoon after looking at ipads in the electrical dept and surprised that nearly all the cakes and pastries had gone. It was very busy so we headed over to the 'soft chairs' to sit down, and they were so messy I was worried about sitting down on them as they had... More
