House by John Lewis Rimmed Plates
Not what i wanted
Not what I was expecting as was trying to match up bone china that I had already bought but it was already unpacked by the time I saw it and washed so felt unable to return it. It has put me off buying things like this on line as you do not get a clear enough picture of the colour. I was expecting the bone china which is maybe not a John Lewis product but something that is available and I already have 16 place sittings of this in large, medium and small plates. I will now have to drive to my nearest John Lewis in Southampton, 1 hours drive away!
This I have to say is the first time I have been unhappy with a purchase from John Lewis but would be grateful for some feedback.

I ordered these dinner plates and side plates to go with some plates we bought 3 years ago. Unfortunately the same sizes were no longer available so we had to buy bigger: 27.5 instead of 25cm and 22 instead of 20cm. When they arrived half the plates were warped and uneven in shape. I returned these and was sent replacements. All except one of these was fine. These plates are really practical for everyday dining but I am sure there has been a drop in quality and I wish JL would bring back the smaller sizes.

These plates are excellent value. They are a good size and look really nice on the table.

Basic, ideal plate for all occassions. Looks smart on the table.

Pleased with purchase
These plates arrived safely - despite rather inadequate packing - and we were delighted with them. A good product at a good price.

We bought this china to replace our rather depleted white china collection - isn't this white china wonderfully versatile?
It was just what we wanted, affordable and we couldn't have asked for a better selection, or more comfortable surroundings (at Cheadle Hulme).

Nice crockery but JL keep changing the available sizes
These plates are really nice- smart enough for special occasions yet microwave and dishwasher proof for every day.
We requested a set on our wedding list 4 years ago with the plan that, as it is a plain set and the JL house brand, we would be able to replace items as required. Unfortunately JL have changed most of the sizes since we bought ours and the replacement dinner plates are too big for our cupboards (and the replacement side plates are bigger also).
Is this a cynical ploy to make us buy a replacement set? If so, it hasn't worked, we won't buy our new set from JL. Such a shame.

Excellent value for money
We use these plates for a monthly business dinner and the plates look just as nice as any other costing far more.
Excellent value for money - Well done JL!
