This store is in the Southside shopping centre where there are many stores from TKMax to Primark including such greats as Waitrose and the post office. The Centre has 2 car parks with 1.6 and 2 metre height restrictions so not somewhere for a minibus. The parking isn't too badly priced for London costing £1.50 an hour. The store is on the upper level next to a Cinema.

When I first arrived the staff managed to not notice me at the door and I was left waiting a little while until some other people arrived at the door when the staff came to their assistance they pointed out I was waiting in front of them and I finally got my seat. The store itself is very dark and was almost having to use the light on my phone to navigate my way around. There was a small number of seats out the front but since this store is in a shopping centre I would have no intention of sitting out there as shoppers and their brats walk past.

The toilets were at the back upstairs beyond a mezzanine floor which also doubles as a corridor and were clean.

The coke machine needed flavour topping up and there is a shortage of sauce bottles as it took 4 times going up before there was the sauce bottle I wanted there. This was facilitated by the length of time I had to wait for my food enabling me to top up my beverage 4 times before my food arrived.

When my food did arrive it was of a high quality and the chicken was lovely, moist and of a good size with a good flavour. Succulent is definitely the word. The bread roll was nice as was the ratatouille which could have been a larger portion.
