Just up the road from us on the A259 at a quaint little village call Clymping is Bairds farm shop, Its been there for a long time. and it sells all the nice things that you would expect. www.bairdsfarmshop.co.uk/ is the web site and as i say you will find all sorts of nice things in the shop, There is also one of the best Butchers in the area in there as well.
My review is not in a section called ” is this a great place to shop “,
It’s all about the sharing, and yesterday when me and 2 of the Leslie Clan were passing we thought we would try the coffee shop out which is now billed as a restaurant. I have been in there as a coffee shop on a few occasions, for work with clients as its near the seaside , I have been in there as ” thirsty” customer and enjoyed a ” sneaky latte”
This time MRS oldmanleslie was with me, that’s easy , a pot of tea & a slice of coffee cake ( that she didn’t finish ).and it certainly didn’t look like as shown on their www
“Little- est ” Leslie had his current favourite of Burger and chips.He did like that he could have as much Tommy sauce as he wanted
The issue I had was that once again I seemed to be able to find the Most ” card board” burger in the count. It was as the menu card described a lamb burger , and it had all that it said it would in it. It Just was not Nice , it wasn’t moist.
So here is my question. and I guess you can answer in comments if you see this:
Should a business do all that it does very well, and do more of it ?
Should all businesses try to be all things to all people and hope that customers accept adequate
In summary, Baird’s @BairdsFarmShop1 is great for shopping, gardening stuff, BBQ and the like, and its a nice place to sit and have a sneaky coffee….. i will add that i was asked if everything was Ok but this was ONCE i had paid.
But as a restaurant, It wasn’t good yesterday
