Went to Greggs for a Sunday morning breakfast, ordered eggs florentine for a bit of a treat and was looking forward to a lazy leisurely breakfast. The restaurant wasn't busy and we were seated in a nice booth. We helped ourselves to the tea, coffee & juices after ordering our cooked breakfast. Disappointingly the orange juice is of the concentrated variety. Eating my eggs florentine, I noticed a slight fishy taste with some mouthfuls which, being vegetarian I notice easily. I then found a piece of salmon and when I asked if they put salmon in their eggs florentine the waiter replied no. I pointed out the salmon and infomed the waiter I was vegetarian to which he replied 'but you eat eggs so you can't be a vegetarian so salmon should be ok for you'. Rendered me quite speachless. Needless to say we didn't pay for my breakfast and on the way out the waiter shouted 'bye see you again'. Not likely.

Dear Christine,

Sincere apologies that Gregg’s Bar and Grill did not meet your standards and that your experience was negative. We have since spoken to the staff member involved who genuinely did not mean to cause offence and we do hope that the free breakfast and drinks helped to make matters up a little.

We arrived early for a 6pm Sunday evening dinner and sat at the bar to wait untill the kitchen opened for 6pm service. On a visit to the ladies bathroom it seemed it was a changing facility for female staff as there were clothes and make up strewn over all of the sinks. We were seated behind 2 other persons who ordered before us they managed to order the only portions of lemon sole and lamb cutlets which we thought was strange as it was 6.05pm and nothing had been served as yet. We ordered a steak at £14 and a burger at £13. When they arrived the steak was covered in some sort if brown sauce being 7 months pregnant i questioned what it was, the waitress had no idea and went back to the chef twice to find out I found it strange that there was no mention of this sauce on the menu it was cooked well but didn't feel it was worth the money as it had a lot of seasoning and the sauce added nothing to it. The burger was served with mustard which again was not on the menu my husband had to scrape it off the chips were covered in salt which was completely overbearing. We. Didn't entertain dessert as there was nothing that seemed worth the price charged we ended up going to sainsburys opposite to buy our own. We left feeling ripped off and definitely will not be returning. The fact that we were back in our car by 7.05pm really shows that it wasn't an enjoyable experience.

After a mixed bag of reviews we tried this venue out using the gourmet card deal and we were not disappointed. First off there were two separate sets by up and coming musicians in the square that gave a good vibe. The welcome and service was good and the food worthy of a master chef show. We had good starters and main and enjoyed the whole experience.
Rib eye steak a real plus. I will definitely return and just a ten minute walk from London bridge station
