  • Sometimes the queue looks like it spans the Earth...but it has never taken more then 10 mins to clear for me. Stick with it ;-)
  • Go shop there! Love it - Farringdon has needed a proper grocery store instead of all these locals! Beats the nearby Tesco by a mile!
  • cous cous and goat cheese salad is a regular staple of mine, followed by an alabi pretox, and then a sugar free red bull.
  • You can buy goods online from John Lewis and pick them up at this Waitrose for free. If you order before 7pm you can pick up the next day.
  • Nicest staff ever...no question is too much trouble!
  • A bit Tescoish
  • Secret tip: Looking for a bargain? Come here on Sunday 5:30-6PM, which is when everything is reduced. Downside: Competing with a certain pushy non-local and his extended family for reduced items
  • It's great providing that the you avoid the breakfast, lunch and early evening rush. The queue moves amazingly fast, but runs right around the store. If too busy for you, there's a Tesco nextdoor
  • Great selection of fresh cheese sold over the counter.
  • John Lewis orders can be picked up from the welcome desk: it's not very well signposted within the store.
  • Super fornito!
  • Get a Waitrose card. In every purchased, you get a free tea, coffee or cappuccino :D
  • Great quality food, when available employees not caring , unhelpful...
  • Decent enough size but unfortunately does not have my beloved cake counter.
  • The self checkouts don't take cash. The guys at the meat counter are happy to give help and advice; take them up on it and explore some exotic cuts!
  • Very overpriced shop. Go to Tesco next door - better quality food, more choice and the price.
  • Their bread is pretty decent. Great with some smoked salmon or ham!
  • The fresh bread is quite good. Try it with some soup!
  • They sell English sparkling wine
  • Avoid shopping between 1-2pm. The queue goes round the whole store, although it does move fast
