Stopped here hoping for a coffee on a lovely sunny morning drive down the Fosse Way. Sign by the car park indicated it was open.
Other than a few people sitting in the courtyard, the place was deserted. Waited in the bar expecting someone to arrive to serve us...........
We both used the facilities as we were waiting............
Eventually we decided to leave as there was such reticence about serving us.
As we walked out, we were approached by one of the party from the courtyard, who it would appear is a member of staff of the establishment.
We were told that it wasn't quite open, that yes the signs say it is open but they have the press in.......
I actually apologised for using the toilets as I had contravened their signage by using the toilet as a non-customer!!
Only to have a sotto voce "how rude" directed at us as we left .
I hope the press coverage accurately depicts the serving mentality.
