    As usual with medicine the food was nice but expensive. Service at the mail box wasn’t great staff were a bit rude and drinks took forever. However, much better service than the new street medicine where the staff are terrible and unpleasant.

    This is a nice place for Sunday brunch in the Mailbox. We were sat in the open section and it was cold being so open plan in the atrium, I would recommend seats in the covered section towards the back of the restaurant. The staff were ok, not a great welcome from front of house but the service was friendly. Unfortunately the food was only warm but very tasty, would only give 3 stars, particularly given the prices, £13 for the Medicine breakfast without drink. Coffee was excellent though.

    Nice atmosphere and good service. Food is generally quite appetising. However, sourdough toast was difficult to eat, without risking teeth, due to being hard as rock. I am unable to understand why tea is served in what looks like a large-ish measuring jug, rather than a tea pot and conventional cup. Unfortunately, it is somewhat cold in the restuarant, too. Overall, we will go back, but maybe avoid some dishes and dress up warm!

    We were sat in a booth and there was no atmosphere. It was a shame because the rest of the restaurant looked like it has a great vibe. We had come up from London for my daughters birthday

    Service was pretty slow but it looked like they were understaffed for a busy Tuesday morning. Props to the two women on the floor, they were always doing something and clearly working hard; as well as just being kind and welcoming to us and not making us feel inconvenient. Food was good but for the price of the Vegan Medicine I would have expected more. Delicious regardless, will still come back but maybe get different.

    Well what can i say. I visited this establishment yesterday and have never been so disappointed in the service and food quality from a slightly up market venue based in a landmark building. Food was served very slow was cold and this waitress wasn't very attentive! Keep away at all costs

    I love this bakery, the food is always outstanding but the service we received at the mailbox was poor. When ordering drinks, we would have to ask serval waitresses and wait 30 mins to receive our order. We were there for over 2 hours for a light brunch by the time we come to pay the bill.

    We were recommended to Medicine for a Christmas meet up with two of our friends who live in Dorset. We were disappointed and the food did not meet expectations. My Eggs Benedictine was stone cold (I should really have sent it back). My partners mushrooms on toast was a measly portion that he then ordered egg on toast to supplement it, the dish never arrived and after enquiring it arrived with our coffees. If you are going to specialise in brunch then you need to be good at it. Our guests made no comment but suspect they weren’t impressed either. A very mediocre offering all round.

    This branch has its own unique feel compared with the others which is something I like, giving you a completely different experience, but with the same high level of standard of food you always get. The staff are all so polite, and attentive making sure you have everything you want whilst there. Would definitely recommend this as a good place to visit on your own or with friends.

    Tasty and good value food but we found drinks expensive. Friendly staff but lacking in atmosphere as a venue- maybe New Street has more of a buzz?

    Our chai latte was served Luke warm We complaint and the staff were very good and get re did the chai lattes were better but not hot Our food was served Luke warm. Not happy at all. We complaint and the staff were very good and they re did the food again which was better. Ended up spending longer than expected in the restaurant and felt bad for complaining but no one like Luke warm food or drinks. Was a special occasion as well. Staff were very good and listened and accommodated. Never had any issues at the medicine bar near new street it’s brilliant . Mail box - not sure so far. Did put me off a little to book again for a special event …I’m sure I’ll get over it and book again. It’s a great venue great ambience but confidence has gone a little for the food and hot drinks Thanks Manjit
