“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

The food was good but the salad bar was a mess. They seemed like they were understaffed on the day that we ate at the restaurant. They were efficient but not super friendly. Perhaps we just came on the wrong day.

“Good but no draft beer!”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.

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”
3 of 5 bubbles 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”
3 of 5 bubbles 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
