The Front cafe at Lyneham is a lovely little cafe/gallery. The chairs are mostly good, the soy hot chocolate was ok, the choc muffin thing was pretty ordinary. It's spacious, though, and not too loud - a good SnB space.
We had a lovely SnB there tonight - new people, not so new people, old mates. A great range of ages and abilities. We were the only ones there (about 10 or 12 of us) and there was plenty of room for more people. Even the cafe dog got a chair to itself!
Pity about the attitude. Last month's problem was, perhaps, an understandable mix up over confirmation but tonight's announcement that they can't guarantee us space every month because they'd like to keep it open for a "more appropriate" (I quote) activity is totally FUCKED!
Yes, it's their business and they can do what they like with it. I have a suggestion about what they can do with it and with what degree of force, but I am a lady and cannot say.
I will say, though, that I will not be back.
