“Good but no draft beer!”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

Maybe I set my sights too high, but no draft beer at all? And no bottles of bitter? Disgraceful. There's a waitrose next door where they could have bought some more if they ran out, so no excuses.
Onto the food - calamari starter slightly overdone and more chippitos than squid rings, but served with lemon and tartre sauce and was still very nice
Main was chicken and BBQ ribs combo, all good served with chips and coleslaw, but one question: purple coleslaw? What's that all about?
Total bill under £30, and they gave me a voucher for 20% discount next time in exchange for my email address
Staff were very friendly and efficient.
Would I go back again? Yes, if they had some draft beer.

“Great service and tasty food”

We had a really friendly, enthusiastic and helpful waiter so followed his suggestions and had an enjoyable meal. Very comfortable seating and a warm, cozy ambience.

“Very Nice Breakfast”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

Whilst staying in London we went for breakfast at this restaurant. A bit like Frankie and bennies in a way but food was really enjoyable. Staff seemed a bit under pressure and we noticed some tables getting restless as they waited quite a while to get their order. Our breakfast came before the drinks which seemed odd. Waitress had too many tables to look after. Breakfast was lovely though but we didn't stay for our free refill as we would have had to wait half a day! May return?!

“why not”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

One of those places where you expect to have pictures of the food in the menu. It's chain that acts like a chain and prices like a chain so why not

“Everything was cold!!!!!”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

A truly disappointing experience. The coffee arrived, barely aired. We weren't offered refills, although would have declined because it was cold. The 'hot' breakfasts arrived, also cold, along with my side order of mushroom....singular !!!! £1.50 for a solitary cold mushroom, on a large cold plate. A totally unpleasant experience and the worst breakfast I believe I have ever had.
