    Silly question, but here it goes.

    I'm quiet shy and hate to make a fool of myself.

    Do morrison cafes serve at the table? I've seen people lining up for food and others just sit at table, so do they take orders from the tabl e please?

    Friend in another city said they did but mums friend said they did not at our one

    Thanks

    They don't take orders from the table, the people you see sitting down have placed an order at the counter for a meal that is cooked to order. The kitchen staff then bring the cooked food to the table.

    Morrisons menus are linked from here, I think these are current. They'll also be displayed at the entrance to the cafe.

    https://my.morrisons.com/blog/food/new-cafe-menu/

    For tea you have to get a teapot (with a bag in) and a mug from the cafeteria, pay for it, then fill it yourself at the hot water machine. At this point you may realise that you can then pour your tea into the mug and top up the pot again.

    Depends on the food/store - At the smaller cafes, you may have to wait whilst your meal is cooked. So you queue-up, order/pay at the till and a little while later, someone will bring your food over to your table.

    At larger stores, they may keep enough food ready at peak times to avoid this happening.

While I agree on the inside of this folded menu it does not show prices for hot or cold drinks - at least at the bottom of the menu - Teatime Meal Deal states meal + drink = 6.00. So, if you selected a 5.50 meal then the tea is only 50p. If you went for 4.00 meal, have the tea but not in the 'Deal' - probably 80p.

    I've used them for years, three places in Cardiff, one in Barry, and one in Barnstable while on holiday.
    Favourites are the omelettes, or their 'cod & chips', Sunday Roast ones are good too.
    The best Supermarket caf!.
    You can study the menu, before you join the queue, so you know what you want, when you get to the till, sort your tea out when you are queuing - you'll see others do it. Then, at the till, say what you want, she/he will key it in tell you how much, you pay, then you get given a large numbered card which you slot in a stand at the table you select (after you pick up the cutlery).
    Sit down, and wait maybe 10/15 minutes (I have had a 20 minute wait but that was for a take-away!
    Enjoy.

    If you go to other restaurants such as Tesco or Sainsbury's then the system can be ever so slightly different. For example at some they fill the teapot with water for you.

    Just be careful, eating out can be a bit of a minefield.

    Try building up to it slowly. Apparently you can purchase soft drinks in cans or bottles to take out and consume off the premises.

    Try going in and purchasing your favourite soft drink to take out. It may help build your confidence.

    Does a brew at Morrisons count as "days out and entertainments"?

    Update. Been to Morrisons several times and got a job there - appears to be a very pleasant place/staff, HR.

    Still not managed the cafe, as shy, don't like getting shown up and costs. Their pies, homemade pies are A1 IMHO.
