Great food, reasonably priced, clean and good service. What more could you want from a cafe. Would visit again if ever in the area.

For a beach café on a hot summer's day, it's not rocket science to work out they are going to be busy. On a bank holiday weekend, with a forecast of three hot sunny days, they know they are going to be busy. Then why do they not employ more staff, or at least allocate more than one to serve the long queue of customers.

This is not a one-off situation, but a constant problem, at least each time we have been there. To add insult to injury, they now have a notice warning that cooked food can take up to an hour to be served!

I fully understand that with the minimum wage, this can put a strain on their finances, but they tend to employ teenagers and are therefore able to pay them a lot less. Most businesses of this type have a pool of casual labour they can call when they expect to be busy. Why then, does the Neddles Eye Café not provide a better service for their customers?

Found Milford on the way home from the New Forest. It was a great find. Good food for lunch. Sat outside in the gorgeous sunshine. Food came quickly despite a warning food could take 30 minutes. Tasty panini and chips. Good value and had New Forest Ice cram after. Such a fab spot!
