Exactly what you would expect from a Starbucks. The store (and most importantly the restroom) is clean, baristas are friendly, and wifi free. This location is usually not too crowded so service is decently fast. Seating is somewhat limited, as this Starbucks is rather small. If you are staying, consider requesting your drink "for here" as they will give you a mug.
American gold cards work in the UK, so keep collecting those stars! The benefits carry over (free syrups, soy milk, refills).
Overall, a good place for a short break.
In the hope some official of Starbucks will read this.
Please, please, PLEASE bring a decent manager to this store. At all times of day the staff is completely overwhelmed. During peak hours there is a huge flock of people waiting for their drinks, yet the staff keeps on trying to make things go faster by taking orders from the line before the customers reach the register.
Cards are being charged wrong, and I don't wanna know what happens when they handle cash.
I worked at a coffee shop like this before. With the proper preparation it takes under a minute to get a hot beverage out. No matter the crowd.
