Served pretty quick however the person who was cashing off the coffees looked like he had cold on the inside. Snatched my loyalty card off me and had no desire to be there.

We asked why and was told by a member of staff that people were smoking drugs outside so thanks for that idiots!! The disabled toilets were also out of use and my mum... More

I went to the coffee shop today where I normally love to go have a coffee and a cigarette. But today all was different. All the tables that r outside undercover had NO SMOKING AREA printed on them. I really can't believe they made it a no smoking area. They will loose a lot of business from the regulars. I... More

the badly behaved youngsters outside which detracts from one's enjoyment. One even threw a chair across the outside seating area. No worries, there is a security guard on hand should it get any worse! Its an odd place but interesting. Full marks to the staff who appear to work in a central location that attracts a variety of characters and... More

if you want a better hot chocolate or cleaner toilets these are the guys for you. although they have an undercover smoking area which means you have to run the gauntlet on entry.

I like the ambience at Nero, nice touch having the free newspapers and comfortable environment BUT still don't understand how they can charge £5 for two small coffees ?

Great Coffee. Lovely friendly staff. Tables cleared and cleaned quickly. We hadn't been before but the steady flow of customers suggest it is very popular.
