    Not bad for £17.99. Got one today and this is it with a mug on to give an idea of size. 70cm square but i would say at 70cm tall it may be to tall for a drinks table next to your camp seats. Ideal kitchen table or the likes. I will be cutting the legs down to use as drinks table as i have my priority's right :D

    If you shorten the legs surely the cross members will run off the end of the legs.

    Looks the same as the one we got from lidl last month. We had been borrowing our sons, coffee table height one but wanted something a bit taller - have to say this one feels flimsy compared to our lads.

    Not sure how much putting together/pulling apart the table top clips will take but for the money I think it was ok:)

    If the same as the Lidl one the clips are just plastic pins on sliders and i doubt would last the test of time but it looks simple enough to pop the sliders out and put metal pins in its place.

    Ah ha. Your talking about when folding up. OK just had the tape out and the legs are 70cm and the cross members are 55cm so no more than a 15cm chop it is.

    This is the exact table we've used for some years. Very sturdy but its putting it back in the bag properly that is the art. However, still a very good table.

    I got it back no problems mate. Its a bit stiff popping the plastic studs on the lid being new but i turned it upside down so allow for some force. Wonder if they give larger bags now as it was rattling in the box when i brought it home. Ill be putting a pull cord in the middle of the back as if i hear that rattle when driving the bloody thing will end up being left in the first camp site :D
