“Review of Afternoon Tea Only”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

I think it is fair to say this is really a review for The Canteen's Afternoon tea not the rest of the food menu.
If you are going to do Afternoon tea then please prepare to be disappointed. Basically its one sandwich each one cake and one scone. If it was advertised as this then you could choose if this is what you wanted.
So many places do not understand what afternoon tea, and The Canteen is no different. We were told when the tea pot runs out just ask and it will be refilled. We did this and all they did was top up the tea pot with water with the same tea bag giving up the weakest tea I have ever had.
On the plus side the sandwiches we were given, despite not choosing them were very nice as were the carrot cake and some sponge cake that we were given.

“Friendly, good food, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

I like this place. Service is fast and the food is very good. I had the turkey and cranberry pie and it was very light. For London, the prices are fair.

“Good honest traditional food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013

City slicker prices, but refreshing change from usual chains (though it is a chain itself).
Roast chicken particularly good if you can beat the traffic to it (they do say sta).

“Nice and peaceful meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

I often go to Canteen in the evenings, the food is simple straight forward english food, cooked well but not exceptional (hence the 4 stars), the desserts are great though

but as a solo dinner at times, i love this place, as you can sit quietly and read and not be bothered by others, as in the evenings it is fairly quiet
