“FAB___U___LOUS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2011

After trawling round Brighton all day shopping and looking for insperation as to where we should eat that evening (not knowing the area at all) we walked back to our guest house and as a last resort went into the place opposite " the tin drum" to ask if they had a table avaliable !! What a Result !! We had a fabulous evening, a fantastic meal, and there was a great atmosmere. Good all round place to eat. Booking advisable as it gets busy.

“Food is great but what a shame about the poor staff and service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2010

Having been to The Tin Drum once before, and having had a gorgeous sunday roast served by sunny, helpful staff, we were really looking forward to our meal yesterday but what a complete disappointment!

The service was soddy at best with drink orders being forgotten despite two polite reminders, orders for meals were taken repeatedly when the items had sold out or were not even available on a Sunday a "Manager" who seemed more interested in getting his allotted cigarette breaks in. All in all, not a very good experience and sadly one we would not be prepared to chance again even though when the food did arrive it was lovely.

PS - if you book a late table on a Sunday and are told to ring ahead to resevre one of their popular roasts, don't bother - we did and the request wasn't passed through to the kitchen and they had sold out... but it was just the icing on the cake to then see 4 members of staff tucking into said "sold out roasts" half an hour after we arrived. Nothing like looking after your own!
