Surprising amount of grain on a film

I begrudge that my first blog is a post of puzzlement but I wanted to share this out in the hope of getting some help.

I went to the launch of the Manchester LomoWall the other week and happily took a few shots on my LC-A+. Whilst I must admit I haven’t used this camera a great deal since buying it and would still consider myself in the learning stages with it I can’t understand how this roll went so badly. Although it was something of a lightly overcast day I was shooting with Kodak Gold ISO400 and I absolutely know the film speed was correctly set on the camera itself. I had Jessops develop the roll and when I got it back I was really surprised by how grainy all the shots are. Perhaps my mistake is using Jessops but I don’t understand how they could have developed in such a way to result in such grain. I’ve used them before and never had a problem until this roll. Could anyone shed any light on this matter?

Help anyone?

Planning to go out shooting some decent shots of the LomoWall tomorrow as these shots clearly don’t do it any justice.
