We decided that getting an outdoor table would be good use of some patio that gets very little sun. We went for the Kettler as it is a reputable brand and it seemed like a good price. Sweatband delivered the table on the promised day and even let me know in advance the likely time of day. As other have commented, the table was quite fiddly to assemble and the multi-language instructions and diagrams were not always clear. The instructions said two adults would need about 2 hours to assemble it. I definitely agree with the two adults but it took about 3 hours and that doesn't include the trip to B&Q to try and find a suitable subsititute for a missing bolt. Anyway, now it is all assembled I am really pleased with the quality and it feels very robust. All we need now is for the wind to die down and the rain to stop to actually use it!
