Rated 2 out of 5 by Locky2 Looks like a great product but is most uncomfortable.
I bought this set before Christmas and have only just had chance to use it. It fits perfectly into the corner of the conservatory for 2 of us to have lunch on nice days. It was easy to unpack and looks good.
However! The chairs are most uncomfortable and can't be improved with a cushion because there isn't enough room. Also with 2 chairs out, the remaining chairs rattle when the table is in use. This means they all have to be pulled out. Overall, we are very disappointed with this product and will resume our search for a small drop leaf table and 2 comfortable chairs. I would have returned this if I had tried it immediately.

I purchased this table. It is ok but no different from the cheaper version at Argos and does it self look fairly cheap. Also the chairs are super uncomfortable due to near zero back support.
Just a warning to anyone else taken in by the reviews like I was - caveat emptor!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cantab56 Overall really good table
however, on reading reviews realise that i too have an issue with one flap not staying up because hole drilled in wrong place..
But use it mostly with one (good) flap for eating and computer, great for small flat

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carole60 Useful product
Had this table delivered this morning. Love the table & chairs and it's ideal for our lounge/dining room. The delivery men were brilliant. They put on plastic overshoes to save our carpet from any marks. Also the took away all packaging.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NotHaP Poor finish
Couldn't decide if this product was meant to be varnished or not. Parts were smooth others, especially the chairs, were very rough. I was sent a replacement which isn't any better. Delivery men couldn't take the first table back because they hadn't been sent the paper work. Now have two "space saving" tables in very small flat!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by David360 faulty hinges
I order from John Lewis a lot and have never written a review good or bad. On the item delivered to me the hinges which hold on the flaps had bent out of shape under the weight of the flaps making them unusable. Aside from that the table had a big scratch and the chairs are pretty uncomfortable. Despite the good reviews, but I have no confidence to order another one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mum2fletch perhaps we just had bad luck?
I would have liked to give this table and chairs 5 stars because I think the concept and convenience is great. However the 1st night we had it my toddler 2.5 years old had the chair collapse on him because on of the little metal sliding mechanisms broke out. I called the next day and was told some one would call the following day. a week later I called again to ask what was happening. Tonight I took out the 3 good chairs to have a family meal and my husband came crashing down followed with a part of the chair breaking I should mention he is average build/weight etc. I can only assume we have had bad luck on this buy. If I wasn't so desperate to have a table I would have asked for a refund. But as I need it (in a really small space)I have to just hope some one will get back to me at some point to let me know if/when I can have a new table.
