This family restaurant served tepidly warm food that was not really any good. Steak Sandwich was chewy and fairly dry. Chips were not hot and the coleslaw was a mush that just tasted of mayonnaise. Wont be returning very soon.

Great food. The steak was tender with wonderful sauce. Adult beverages were creative and good! We enjoyed this meal as one of our favorites during our London trip.

Popped in for lunch today and what a bargain, under £6, plentiful, fresh and delicious and served with the best homemade coleslaw I have ever had. Brilliant service too, really comfortable and great music! Check out their great cocktail promotions for after work drinks. Good...More
