Q & As

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by lovely looking table but a bit wobbly. This is the second table we have purchased in this range, We decided to go for a larger extending table to accommodate our growing family and replaced the smaller round table. I was well aware of having to keep the surface of the table covered to avoid damage. which is such a shame as you loose the overall appearance of the piece. However despite the table standing in the same place as the first one and being really sturdy the new one rocks and groans when in use. we have to constantly tighten the leg screws and washers to keep the table stable, i am not sure if this is because we use the extensions on a sunday and the table is having to be moved. I do worry that it may collapse on one of the grandchildren as it becomes so loose very quickly. 20 February 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too heavy to extend We purchased this table for occasional full extension use, not regular. Initially to get the leaves in we had to go to great effort with the only way to close it, by two of us at one end with other end tight against dining room wall. 12 coming for lunch, took us nearly an hour to get it open, resulting in me being under the table using the strength of my legs to push it open with my poor partner being gradually pulled along the floor in an attempt to hold on and pull the other way. We are not looking forward to our next use on Christmas Day!! Certainly not for elderly use. We are fairly fit and mid 40's and had aches and pains the next day, from our attempts! 18 November 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not quite to expectations A very well made, and extremely attractive table with a solid extending mechanism. A lot of care has obviously been spent by Neptune. HOWEVER, if you wish your table top to be pretty maintenance free and to keep its lovely appearance, then you will need to keep a close eye on any spillages etc, for, as the other correspondent mentioned, you need to be quick with the kitchen towel. Shame because in other departments it deserves five stars. 02 August 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely table, careful maintainence required The table is very elegant and just as pictured and described. The extension mechanism is ingenious if not a tad fiddlly but as specficied it is a two person job. My only real issue with the table is the Matt finish on the top. While it looks lovely the care instructions make it clear that that is not a laquered table top and as such although it has a stain guard protection, any spllis or stains must be removed fairly quickly. If you are intent on keeping the finish flawless and you don't want to cover up the table you will need to clean it as soon as a spill happens. Personally I haven't been too precious about it as I would rather enjoy my time then spend it baby sitting my dining table! Sufficed to say I have had a number of large dinner parties and no permenant staining has occured so all in all a great purchase 11 February 2013
