“Great for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

This is one of our local restaurants and we visit with our baby son occasionally at weekends. Its always busy with happy families and the staff are always friendly and attentive to the needs of families and young children. The food is OK with god portions but don't expect gourmet or meat perfectly cooked to your liking.

“Overpriced and mediocre food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

The most expensive restaurant we visited during our short stay in London. Food tasted average, definitely not up to the price. Chicken wings for almost 10 pounds turned out to be a plate of FOUR wings with some greens scattered around. "Shredded duck" tasted like oversalted ground beef. "Real belgian waffle" tasted exactly like store-bought pre-packaged kind - and I suspect it was exactly that.

I didn't see a single redeeming quality in the restaurant that would warrant such high prices - to add insult to injury, they charge "optional" service fee - although I fail to see how it's "optional" once it's already on your bill without your knowledge. Service was average, the server couldn't offer a suggestion when asked.

“Nice for children”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014

Over-priced, food mediocre at best, service OTT with crouching method when taking orders, Icould hardly see my burger for the over-sized bun. Popular with local yummy mummies and noisy children.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013 via mobile

Had an excellent meal here alone last week. All 3 courses were of a good quality. I chose the healthy feta salad. Would recommend this chain to anyone. The service was excellent, all very polite and courteous.
