{"reviewer_id":"BBA95A92760AF25706B94CADC309281E","reviewer_name":"Steve","review_text":"I used to be Albion’s biggest fan.\nAnd though all the new branches closed, I was happy that at least this, their original cafe was still open. \nLittle did I know how it had changed. \nIt was a Sunday bank holiday afternoon. A sullen waiter eventually seated us in a busy section instead of a spacious quiet section because we weren’t sure what we were eating. \nHowever they were fine when an individual diner in waiting behind us sat in the quiet section by the window without even waiting to be seated and was clearly a coffee drinking laptop user only. I asked if we could be reseated seeing as how they were happy for people to sit where they liked. I asked for a quieter seat. The coffee laptop user was asked to move ( seemed fair) and we were reseated very grudgingly ( ouch!). But not by the window where the coffee laptop user had been. ( he had chosen well. It was the best seat).\n I asked why. \nWe were told that is for people who ate food. \nAs it was we did order food. Great. Maybe now we qualified for Albion’s Special Service. \nWe were moved to the special window seat. \nThough we felt like we had snuck in via the waste disposal vent. \nStill at least we could have a great cup of their excellent chamomile tea. \n(No sir, we don’t do that anymore ).\nExcellent green tea.\n(No sir . Only with ginger in it.)\nOh well. We ordered soup and some water. We were really thirsty.\nTen minutes later the soup arrived. Very good. No water. \nI asked for water .\n15 mins later we ordered carrot cake. \nStill no water. \nThe carrot cake arrived after a while . Still no water. I asked again. Please could we have some water?\nStill at least we had carrot cake. I’d told friends Albion’s carrot cake was in the top 3 in London. \nWe ate the carrot cake. \nI think there was carrots in it. But it was so dry and cloyingly sweet that it was hard to tell. \nWe half finished it. ( I’ve never half finished a carrot cake before.)\nThe water arrived.\nWe paid the bill. I produced a voucher given to me from my dedicated custom over the years. No expiry date. \nI was told it wasn’t valid. \nThat was the icing on the cake. Not the subtle zesty icing that they used to have on the original Albion carrot cake, but the cheap and cheerful sweet one that makes the back of your throat all gacky that they are now using on their imposter carrot cake and really makes you want a glass of water. \nI sighed.\nThe first time.\nI hoped it was a sigh that communicated the question in my head which was’ my memories and dreams were clearly that of a deluded mind. Just how badly do you want us to never dine here again?’\n\nEventually the manager said, ‘ I’ll let it go this time’ ( isn’t that what police say to first time offenders?) \nWe paid. \nOh, the dining area was entirely empty and had been throughout our dining experience. \nNot a sausage. \nPerhaps if we had ordered sausages we would have been treated better? Been given some water perhaps?\n\nAlbion.. what on Earth happened to you?\nYou were my favourite cafe experience. \nThis was an utterly dismal experience. We were made to feel utterly unwelcome and we were polite, patient and hopeful throughout. \nI dearly hope you pull your socks up and meet the high standards you once set for all cafes in London.","review_rating":1.0,"sentiment_class":"unknown","sentiment_result":0.779774494264706,"sentiment_breakdown":[["I used to be Albion’s biggest fan.",["positive",0.9238094]],["And though all the
