Owing to working in Wimbledon on Saturday, and the early opening hours, we ended up eating lunch and dinner here. The decor was relaxing and there was plenty of room to eat. Staff were friendly although service was incredibly slow and chaotic, especially at (a...More

We had lunch at The Old Frizzle recently and it was disappointing. The burger in particular wasn't good at all - the patty was overcooked and dry and the price for add ons (£1.50 for a slice of cheese!?) is bordering on insulting. The chips...More

The jury is still out for this place for me - as a sports watching venue it’s hit and miss, and the food doesn’t seem of the quality of visit for a meal. Table service is a bonus for sure, I’ll give the place that....More

What a very cordial place The Old Frizzle is, we ventured in after the matinee at the theatre. A very nice selection of wine and we enjoyed some heated Camembert - I say heated because I wasn’t paying attention to the menu’s description but it...More

We booked because the menu looked yum. Our drinks order was taken quickly but was slow to come. Otherwise the service was attentive. The food was average. The super chunky chips are a novel idea but they become cold very quickly and therefore not pleasant...More

I think is one of the best pub in wimbledon because the atmosphere is very confortable. Is always busy because thera are quiz game and music in live. The service is often very slow infact
