What a change that is from those smelly dirty toilets that were there for years. It got to the point people would walk on the opposite side of the road for fear of being 'tapped up' by dubious clients!
I did the demolition on the old toilets there, and the inscriptions on the walls made for hilarious readings...saying that i wouldn't of dared to go there after dark!!!!
I went in there when it was the toilets, i was in early teens and walked round the corner and there was about 3 men just stood there !
After walking our dog around Haigh Hall, we noticed my cousin Chris outside the Orchid and decided to join him for at while. We decided to have a couple of hot chocolates. WHAT an experience, all that cream and marshmallows as well. MUST go back again soon.
I have visited this cafe on several occasions, the drinks taste average, yet are not dissimilar to prices at Cafe Nero / Starbucks. The customer service when 'certain' staff are working, is terrible. It's not unusual to be blatantly ignored whilst they chat about their private life - poor!
