Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have been meaning to come and try one of the famous 'fieldtrays' for ages.  Finally popped in for take away, click and collect.  Easy to order online.  No eating in at present with the pandemic restrictions.  Nice branch.  Clean.  Social distancing well managed.  Friendly staff.  Efficient service.  Basically pick a protein or vegetable fieldtray, choose your base, add two sides and a sauce if you want and voila you have a fieldtray.  Really good and the portion was big.  Very generous with ingredients.  I had the gochujang salmon, fresh baby spinach base, grilled broccoli with olive oil, salt and pepper and the kale miso slaw.  I didn't have a sauce as the gochujang salmon and kale miso slaw already had sauce / dressing.  Filling and healthy.  They display calories and nutritional information on the website which is very helpful.  Good selection of options to make your fieldtray.  Freshly made and tasty.  I wouldn't have this regularly as it is pricey but would come again.  There are drinks as well, pastries, sweet treats and a few other items as well to accompany your fieldtray.  If you go late in the day, I suggest ordering online and pre-booking a click and collect slot as choices are less.

Whilst on business in London, I was looking for a healthy lunchtime meal and came across Farmer.J, which offered a number of options. I choose the Harissa Chicken, Tahini Aubergine and Broccoli with. Dash Peach drink. all for £12.90. Great tasting food, that I really enjoyed.

I had a wonderful dining experience at the restaurant yesterday, thanks in large part to the exceptional service provided by Manager Maya. Her attention to detail and friendly demeanor truly elevated our meal.

I have eaten here on a number of occasions and always enjoyed the food. However, they have a very frustrating policy on the use of laptops. I popped in here after work on a Monday evening by myself with a view to having a quick bite to eat, a drink and doing some work for a meeting the following day. I took a seat in the bar area, the place was very quiet. However, when I tried to use my tablet, I was told that this was not permitted after 5.30pm. I tried to reason with the guy, saying that the place was substantially empty and it's a casual place, not a fine dining restaurant and there are plenty of more up-market places which would allow you to do a bit of work on a Monday evening while enjoying a quick bite especially when the restaurant is so quiet. Disappointingly, the guy was completely inflexible about this. So overall I found the approach to service pretty appalling which is a shame as I do think the food is decent. And just to clairfy, this is a casual joint which does takeaway food at lunch but also has space for sitting down - it is not a high end restaurant.

Hi Umesh, I apologize for any inconvenience in regards to our laptop policy. We aim to be reasonable with this request, and I do apologize that you were not made aware before you were seated. You are completely correct that during the day we are very casual, and offer takeaway. To clarify any confusion, in the evenings, at this particular location we transform into the "Fancy Fork" and offer a more upscale experience. We must always enforce this rule so there is no confusion, no matter how quiet we may be. As we do become a casual fine dining restaurant in the evenings, there is a certain atmosphere we try to emulate. Therefore we try to make not only the change in service visible, but also create an environment for dining and not a workspace. I hope you can understand, and we hope to see you at The Fancy Fork in the future.

Expensive but quite nice food, in small portions, served in a maddening way by unbearable people. Pointing at the food prohibited, and will attract a warning from staff. I will never visit this place again. If you own this business, sell.

Great place for lunch, alternative to your usual sandwiches and salad. Serves nice Mediterranean hot food and this place has a good selection for vegan and vegetarian too.

I had a base of grains and herbs. Harissa chicken on top. Sides of roasted cauliflower and brussel sprouts. First off, I am so full. Second, the flavours really are exquisite. So much care has gone into their products. Super friendly service even though they must be exhausted. Massive lunchtime queue and they process it so fast and efficiently Lovely ambience. Comfy place to eat it. Great value. Definitely will be coming back many times.

Stopped here to grab a few drinks after a long day of exploring London before dinner. Super friendly staff and great cocktail selection. I had the blood orange and grapefruit gin & tonic as well as the cucumber and hibiscus gin & tonic. Both were delicious. Family members had the grapefruit spritz and loved it.

Thursday night, mid August in the big smoke. I need to find a restaurant for our Thursday night supper date I stumbled across a review for The Fancy Fork at Farmer J and an article about Shuli Wimer (ex River Cafe) was now the chef. Browsing the online supper menu had me hooked. Our waitress showed us to our table, asked if we had been before, and offered us water and the menu's. Having read about the Fancy Fork I was aware of their menu offerings. No starters, mains, etc. They suggest, a bit like Tapas, for two people a few from the start of the menu as 'starters' and three from the middle of the menu and if really hungry the steak or fish to share. Right now what to order? Our waitress fully explained any of our queries. Three 'starters' ordered. The cured Salmon is a star, Stuffed Zucchini flowers magic and Padron peppers superb. Our 'mains' were the Chicken Shawarma. Cabbage, Tahini, Yoghurt, Zhug.and Lentil Msabbaha & Salad. Green Pepper, Shallot, Radish, Chilli. Two stand out dishes. Being the foodie I am I am already constructing the Shawarma in my head to try at home. The lentils were equally as good. The house red was excellent, Montepulciano D’abruzzo Riserva. Both the food and drinks menu is what the 'experts' suggest is the best format. Fresh seasonal ingredients, enough items not to make it over whelming. A short good wine list. I can not fault this restaurant. Also a shout out to the waiting staff. Excellent crew.Thank you for a great experience. We will be back

I love this place!! it's in the middle of the city/business district so there's a mad lunch rush but they are totally ready and the staff create a very upbeat and efficient atmosphere! the menu varies a bit but always a few hot mains and gorgeous side dishes!! they have plenty of veggies and gluten free choices as well. I have not been for dinner but apparently it's sensational as well!

Food is decent and healthy but the lady with dreadlocks working there needs to calm down. Shouting and being rude to employees and customers. It's okay to aim to provide a quick service but remember customers are the ones paying you and customer experience is what makes people come back...

This place offers a great selection of drinks from alcohol to cucumber lemonades and the service here is always friendly. We visited again last week after a visit to London. Perfect location in the heart of city. Tables with a USB socket are a great touch! Be careful as it is card only

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
