“dirty toilets, sullen server”

The Filling Station
Ranked #7 of 10 Restaurants in Talbot Green
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 4, 2017

Stopped here for coffee. the girls who served us presented as being very sullen. She did not exchange any pleasantries and never smiled throughout the transaction. The one toilet was filthy. There was no soap, no hand dryer and no towels, paper or otherwise. I was not surprised to see this place only had a hygene rating of 3. Well actually I am, I thought it would have been lower.

Okay there are some rust marks where the legs of the tables join the floor but except for those marks the floor was spotless as were the tables and chairs. The chairs and tables are fastened together and there was too much of me to get into the space available. A free standing chair was cheerfully placed at the end of a table; problem solved. I had ordered a small fish with chips. When it arrived I was amazed at the size of the fish; it was a lot larger than I was expecting. It was freshly cooked as were the chips and it all tasted delicious. I have never eaten here before but will certainly do so again.

The service was ok.
Staff were friendly.
The food was ok even though a lady sat opposite us complained about her food not tasting 'quite right'. No action by the staff to resolve her complaint and the lady ended up taking the filling out of her bread roll onto her plate and eating the bread roll with nothing in it..
The establishment was very dirty. The toilet and toilet area was very dirty with no form of drying your hands. No antibacterial soap or soap provided in toilet area. The condements on the tables were dirty with sauce caked on the outside of the plastic bottles, which meant your hands were covered in sauce.
The staff stood behind the counter chatting when no customers to serve, when in fact they could have been clearing away used plates and cutlery and wiping down the tables.
To sum 'The Filling Station' up - Very dirty place.
I would not be in a hurry to visit this cafe in the future.

Bought a take away tonight, I have never used the restaurant before but the meal was lovely and plentiful, and the staff very pleasant and helpful. Going back on Saturday to try one of their kebabs
