    Overall, DKP is great. However, often have to chase staff for cutlery while the food is going cold, sometimes drinks don't arrive while you are waiting for your food. Have asked for vegan spread for bread rolls in the notes on the ordering app, but on a couple of occasions, butter is put in with the hot rolls, which melts on them. All things that can be fixed and overall a great place and very friendly, if a bit inefficient service

    Not the best experience as their booking system is a joke. We had booked in for 7pm for a table of 3. We had to book 2 weeks in advance to get a table on a Saturday night, so we had been looking forward to it for a while. Unfortunately, it was raining on the night that we went, but it was okay as we were sure that they would prepare for this, we would be seated under cover. The disappointing thing was that this wasn’t the case at all. We arrived on time at 7pm for our booking, and were made to wait about 20 minutes because there was no space for us. It seems that the Left Bank like to take as many bookings that they can, but they don’t put a time limit on them. So, there was just no room for us because people who had booked earlier weren’t leaving. So we were told that we could be seated outside without cover, we just decided to go with this because our one friend had travelled 45 minutes for some drinks with us and we didn’t want to have a completely disappointing night. So we were sat in our coats at a soaking wet table with our umbrellas up in the rain. Prices for drinks were pretty high. Not great value for money at all. Overall, a pretty rubbish time. Completely understandable that the weather couldn’t be helped. But I just think that the booking system needs to be changed. Bookings shouldn’t be taken if you can’t guarantee a reasonable seat. When most of the seating is outside all the time anyway, preparing for the weather shouldn’t really be an issue. However, the security guard was very pleasant to us when explaining the situation. We left after one expensive drink and had a pretty disappointing night.

    How disappointing. After asking many times, my wife finally got her drink 40 minutes after we placed the order. Despite asking many times, we finally got our food over 1 hour after placing our order. We were ignored and/or fobbed off by 5 waitresses/waiters when we asked where our drink or food was. We were told “it’s on its way” but they had clearly not checked and were just not bothered. We finally found a chap with an iPad who found out that there had been an error with the ordering system, which has happened before apparently. We love the place but feel very deflated and sad that we were treated so poorly and ignored for so long.

    Me, my husband and our 8 year old son came for dinner on a Friday evening, we were up on the second terrace, next to a fire pit. The food came so quickly we couldn't believe it, just after our drinks which was also quick considering the location we were in too. The service was impeccable, especially Jake who was thoroughly professional and very friendly. Prices were reasonable and the food was delicious. Will definitely come again.

    After visiting this venue a few times and always giving the benefit of the doubt for delayed drinks etc, I will not be visiting again! Social distancing didn’t seem to exist anymore... the food is over priced and not even warm when it comes to you! The staff (especially the security) are rude and not very helpful. They are making a killing of a profit at the moment but once all pubs/restaurants open properly the Koffee Pot will soon be forgotten about due to the lack of a good service.

    The fish and chips was lovely and service much quicker than expected. Unfortunately we were given the worst table in the place which spoiled the whole experience. I completely understand why they have packed in as many tables as possible but this was a step too far (table 200).

    Really great vibe, great food and drinks. Thoroughly enjoyable. One down side is there aren’t any heaters near the benches by the river so it does get cold later on in the evening - nothing a good coat won’t fix though. Just as long as you remember one!

    As we found last year the ordering process is longwinded and confusing. We ask for glasses of tap water during the ordering process but they did not appear. We were seated on the balcony outside the Charles Bar which was very pleasant but did not have the ambience of the courtyard. I must say we are grateful that you are open and that you can seat so many people outside safely. So thank you.

    Only one of us could get the menu to appear on mobile, so he ended having to pay for everyone. Certainly discouraged us from ordering a second round of coffees. Unlikely to return or to recommend until situation returns to normal. Pity.

    I’ve been many times to De Koffie Pot because the ambience is fantastic, but I’ve always been somewhat disappointed with the food. We sent a plate of dirty fries back because some of the toppings were very burnt and the cheese was solidified, and we were denied a refund. The head chef came out to tell us that we’re the only people to have ever sent back a plate of dirty fries and they don’t do refunds. So next time we go we can order a plate of dirty fries “on the house”. Pretty unremarkable- the place itself is very nice but the food is average.

    Excellent views and drinks. Terrible slow service and hour plus for food served on cold plates on a quiet thurs evening. Been few times now and nothing changes won’t be going again for food that’s for sure. Amazing fire pits, slightly over priced for what it is. Staff are lacking concentration and pairs of ears, we have asked for few things and zero was done.

    Having read some of the recent less than favourable reviews I was undecided whether to book De Koffie Pot but due to the lack of outdoor venues at present in Hereford I went ahead. My friends and I were very pleased with the set-up and organisation. The food arrived promptly and the staff were very polite and obliging. We arrived at 5.30pm and left at 8.00pm, and it had become rather noisy and we had to speak quite loudly but maybe that's an age thing!
