I agree Szerma!
Prets are by far my favourite chain - for both coffee and service.
Couple of years ago there was a Costa on the site with the rudest manager you could (not) wish for...their front store used to grate and stick half open and I was walking out with my coffee when the the door jolted and stuck - causing me to drop my coffee on their mat.
The manager saw this and when I returned to get another cup he didn't offer a free replacement despite the door being like that for months so I paid and left (I didn't ask or demand a replacement being lily livered in such things but I was very disapointed none the less and confirmed my beleif that Costa staff seem to be less freindly generally)
Also the Starbucks has closed on the opposite side of St John's Road has closed which suits me fine - being my least favourite coffee chain!
