    Arrived for our reserved table atc10am, seated quickly, and glad we booked as it got very busy. Took awhile for any one to come and take our order. There was only 1 waitress and 1 chap taking the orders. Food took about 30mins to arrive, but icwas fresh and beautifully presented. Absolutely yummy.

    Always a good ambience in there but unfortunately the waiter/maitre d' makes the experience a little tense. He projects a very arrogant persona and is extremely blunt, making you wonder whether you should be there or not. It would probably put me off going back to the Codsall branch. The food wasn't up to much either...slow to arrive and not particularly tasty.

    We have been here a few times now and during the week service is great but at the weekend both times we’ve had to wait nearly an hour to order after we’ve been seated with food arriving a good 30 mins after. Good is always amazing but slow service at the weekends has put me off going back unless it’s a week day.

    I have always liked the bakery items from here, however it feels more and more expensive every time i visit and much busier! It's not good value for money (and I live in London) and when it's busy you have to wait a long time for food and for drinks / to order. Probably better to visit on a Monday afternoon when it's quiet.

    I love to visit, we were placed too close to other diners either side it inhibits conversation, the service was polite but once our order was taken it was as usual super slow! Took 45 minutes to get simple bacon scrambled eggs and toast, didn’t really enjoy the experience mainly because of table. Took at least 10 minutes to pay, such a shame this happens often, great concept but let down by time and organisation of tables

    I thoroughly like the whole atmosphere, friendly staff, they work dam hard and obviously at busy times they are stretched to the max. They handle the pressure well. I expect to wait a little between arriving, getting seated and ordering. But overall I love going (feels like a treat) and will continue to go when I can.

    Used to love Medicine but was super disappointed. The staff are rude - when we arrived and said we’d booked a table the host asked us to wait and then proceeded to go and clear and clean tables (even though there were plenty of clean tables we could’ve been seated at before he did that) and serve food for 5 minutes leaving us standing there. Service in general was very slow. The menu has changed a lot and whilst the bakery remains great quality the restaurant food has dipped considerably. The portions are much smaller, it’s far more expensive and the quality generally isn’t there, they had a lot of micro greens etc so it looks great on arrival, but I ordered the mushrooms which I used to love from there and it completely lacked any flavour which was disappointing for £11. As someone who used to be a big fan of Medicine a few years ago I was really disappointed.

    Service wasn't great even though it wasn't too busy. Our host/server was constantly on his phone near the counter and we would need to get up and order condiments or extras on the till! I've been here before, and although the food is good, their service as well as portions are small so there is little value for money.

    We always love the food here so keep coming back but we’ve noticed how despite it regularly being busy there’s no improvement on service times! It’s great that the business is busy on weekends and it’s a reflection of how nice the food is, but it took 15-20 mins to seat us despite a reservation and an hour from our booking time till we have any food/drink on the table. I had anticipated this due to repeated visits but would be a pleasant surprise to see wait times/food service times improve next time.

    The food here was great. We really enjoyed it so can’t knock it too much. However, would recommend going on a week day if possible as it was packed on the Sunday we went and it felt fairly chaotic with people everywhere. Service, drinks and food were slow and there was one guy taking orders who looked like he could have done with some help. Everyone was friendly tho and the food and drinks when we got them were excellent.

    The food was lovely and the place is great. I would just comment that our toast came a bit over done and the knives were just not sharp enough to cut them. Apart from that it was brilliant. It was a really busy day so the service took some time but was still great

    I’m a big fan of Medicine but was really disappointed on my most recent visit. The optional add-ons to the base menu cost a lot. Our party of 3 had a brunch-meal & with 1 drink each came to just shy of £60 which in my opinion does not represent value for money, especially when we ordered an extra round of coffees that never materialised, & while we were waiting we were asked to leave as the table was needed. To add insult, a discretionary service charge was added without an option to challenge it. The tables weren’t properly cleaned & we were early in the day. Disappointed. Standards are slipping.
