Thank you for your time and review of the Elephant and Castle. Sorry to here we missed the crackling off your your roast. I have noted your comments and will look into the comment and adapt where we need to.

Thank you for your feedback. I have not increased the prices since I started here, but do take on board what you said.
Nothing flashy, but reasonable food at a reasonable price with enough choice to give each family member something they want. I'm sure we'll go again.
