I found Laithwaites at Vinopolis
to be a bit lacklustre.
Went in there in the middle of last week (when they were "softly open" to quote the mgr). They've done a very nice job with lighting the space, but to my eyes the range is nothing at all special, and the presentation of the stock is unexceptional.
For me, Majestic did a few wine regions in depth, whereas Laithwaites appeared to be trying to cover the world thinly. And the staff weren't particularly friendly, either. I think I'll end up missing the Majestic.
...if you press it, they will come.
