    The food presentation wasn’t very good I had the halloumi brioche expected more refined presentation . Was put on the plate quite messily as if it was a burger from a casual diner

    Lovely French toast with bacon and maple syrup. I had one cup of tea, but it was only filled 3/4 for £3.20! Otherwise it would have been value money.

    It was super busy and understaffed. We waited ages to be seated and for a waitress to come to our table. The space is also very cramped and when we asked to be moved to an empty table (just 2 of us with lots of available seasting) we were told no. We ended up leaving and getting breakfast at another restaurant. Medicine Bakery is great, I love the food there. The service is just very disappointing.

    It was great to see Buddha Bowl back on the menu, sooooo nutritious. 😍 It’s a great place for brunches etc The only thing I spotted yesterday was a lot of burnt bread, the brioche bread with bacon n syrup too burnt and the hash browns we had were slightly burnt but still very tasty.. Service was good, very polite and attentive. Overall a great place though, so keep up the good presentation standards 💕

    Exceptional experience my new place to eat. The cake was like nothing I have tasted before perfection in a box I had the Macha raspberry and white choc I mean I have no words. They have the best Iv tasted yet, turmeric latter Food was lovely very well presented definitely 100%. Two minor issues was that I couldn’t hear the staff as there was a table of men talking and making so much noise it was a little distracting. And the fact I could connect to my Internet was a lil annoying I had to move table but otherwise I enjoyed the resultant food and service .

    The service is always great at Medicine but the food wasn't up to the usual standard. Not sure if there is a new chef but I didn't enjoy my meal as I have done on all my previous visits.

    We sat on one of the booth tables on the left of the restaurant. I had the steak and eggs, one of us had mushrooms on sourdough and the third had the vegan brunch. All the food was delicious. We also took cakes home. Really relaxed yet chilled vibe - great way to spend a few hours , would highly recommend.

    I can see from the reviews that we had the same experience as a lot of other recent diners. The same themes seem to feature a lot (long wait times, a lack of staff and cold food). It took a while for us to be acknowledged on arrival and 15-20 minutes for our drinks order to be taken. We ordered limited and simple dishes and the food took between 30-45 minutes to arrive. Another table’s food was brought over to us. When our food arrived, it was stone cold and the smashed avocado tasted fizzy/carbonated as if it had been in the fridge for a few days. We would have mentioned it to staff but no one returned to our table. We tried to catch the attention of staff several times but were ignored and the issue didn’t seem significant enough to walk over to staff to complain in front of other tables. We wanted to leave quite quickly after finishing because we had been underwhelmed with the visit but even requesting the bill took an awkward amount of time.

    Food was really good but the service was terribly slow even though it wasn’t busy - ended up having to get up to ask for the bill because we waited 20 minutes for someone to take our dessert order - not the best service for somewhere so up market

    After visiting the codsall venue and being impressed, we booked at Birmingham mailbox after an overnight stay. Our table was booked for 10.30am, but we didn’t have any type of drinks or food order until 11.20am, with no apology or acknowledgement for our wait. Me and my friend ordered two drinks each (a coffee and a soft drink each, over fear we would be waiting a while again) however these did not come. Instead we received our food order first and had to chase up the drinks, which again took a while. We felt we couldn’t enjoy our food as it was very dry, so after a few bites we waited for our drinks to come. When they eventually made it to us, there was again, no apology or acknowledgment for any wait. The place seemed busy-ish, not over run - but there did seem to only be three staff members working the floor and after looking around it also seemed a lot of people were left waiting a while. However, when we asked for the bill it came straight away - no receipt, just abruptly asked by the waitress if we were paying on one card or two. When we said we would split the bill we then saw the amount each, but no breakdown of what this covered. The lady then made a swift exit. I can’t say the food was thoroughly enjoyable either, overall a very disappointing visit.

    Our first visit today. Really enjoyed the experience. Food was excellent, large portions and very tasty. Service very good and attentive. The restaurant is comfy with tables not too close together and the food very good value for money. Easy to book, would definitely recommend.

    The place is cosy and nice. Therefore, the environment is good. Food offer is not the best, with limited kind of dish available, most of them with bread. No meat, fish, pasta or appealing salad choice. Service is correct, we had no complains despite the comments that we read from previous customers. The price is moderate.

    Excellent food and service. Varied menu makes you want to go back again and again. Only downside is that it’s not very warm in the restaurant as it’s open the main corridor going thru the Mailbox

    Extremely disappointing. Booked for 12.30 expecting lunch and had viewed the menu on line before booking. When we were seated and given the menu there was no lunch option just brunch and a couple of the options on the brunch menu were not available either, we decided to leave and go elsewhere. I find it infuriating that websites are not updated, it’s not rocket science, if you’re running a business your customers need to know what is available. Will not be returning.
