We decided to eat at Bonnie Gull as we love seafood and the recommendations from a number of publications. However the standard of service was the worst we have experienced. It started off poor and got worse. Firstly it was slow but the waiting staff did not have a clue.
1. Ordered water ....had to ask twice.
2. Ordered a bottle of wine .....".got a glass.
3. Ordered starter to share with bread......had to ask twice for bread.
4. Main courses arrived an hour after ordered.....but were good.
5. Ordered 2 espressos......one cup cracked and when sent back waited 10 minutes for a replacement.

The portions are too small, what there is on the plate is absolutely divine and cooked to perfection but it doesn't feel good value for money and that irks me, i had to fill up with a portion of chips...
The starter was closer to an amuse bouche and the mains were insufficient for my moderate appetite. The waitresses are lovely and know the menu inside out which helps because it's a real dilemma choosing between so many good dishes! I would go back, but for a light lunch not dinner...

This place was really impressive. The food was fresh, nicely presented without being 'art on a plate', and good portion sizes. Oysters to start were lovely. The wine was good value - for London anyway! I had the eclair for pudding, it was huge! All you could ask was delivered.

Staff were helpful and attentive. I'll definitely be going back.

I am very glad we did, great food lovely waiting staff and a lively atmosphere made for a great evening. there was an interesting selection on the menu and the fish and chips i had were beautifully cooked. really can't rate this place highly enough. we will be back.

This is a gorgeous little place - not bad value for money and possibly the best fish and chips I have ever tasted. Definitely worth a look for seafood lovers
