  1. excellent it will give some competition to sainsburys own cafe, they have been very greedy as what is now the sainsburys cafe was originally going to be an independent restaurant. shame, but costa will be good.

  2. Shame it couldn't be an independant trader.I suppose it will suit those who like everywhere to be the same and the airheads who like to buy overpriced coffee

  3. Why would we want a French trader? At least Costa is British.

    1. 'independant' is not part of the English language, but is part of the French mother tongue.

    2. I get it now,spelling mistake! Coincidentally 'pedant' also has a French language root.

  5. Great! give it a few years and every English town will look the same, Sainsburys, Costa, Greggs, how exciting! get a Boots and will have a mini-Solihull. How pathetic is that?

  6. Dorridge is not a town, even though Sainsburys seem to think it is!

    As an aside it took me 15 minutes to drive through Dorridge earlier I thought the store had opened. Alas it was just the ridiculous new road system and builders still working on the roads in the dark. What fool said this thing would not cause traffic chaos?

  7. Not really for independent coffee shops. They tend not to be as good - eg Viola, the baker's in Knowle, catwalk cafe etc. They need to reinvent themselves - less oldie worldie more edgy. The Costas are British owned and busy with a real range of ages and the one in Knowle has really added to the high street. I would be for a funky new coffee shop but don't see it happening.

    1. I love the independent coffee shops, they tend to be smaller and more personal and the coffees more interesting. Unfortunately Costa's coffee is not to my taste and their interiors too urban.

  8. There is a rumour of Greggs also taking a unit. The chains give a far superior offer to the customer which is unfortunate.
