It looks good from the outside, food is on trend and friends and family had been making good noises.
Just to be clear, they didn’t do anything wrong. They’ve followed the formula for these sorts of places and delivered. The food wasn’t memorable except to say there was way too much vinegar in then peri/ habanero/ thingy sauce on the wings and dessert was out of the box and reminded me of eating out in the 1990’s. I’m sure you can buy the same in Iceland.
Portions on the fries and sides were minuscule. Basically you are forced to order more and this must be a major contributor to their profit margins.
It was really my fault for expecting something really tasty and looking forward to finding that rare above average place in Harrow. It’s in Hatch End for geographical accuracy.
At over £50 for the two of us without any alcohol, it was champagne prices for prosecco.

I think the food is nice but unfortunately every time you need to order/request something you have to try and get someone’s attention for 5 minutes. The staff are not looking round at each table properly to check if anyone needs anything at all times.
This has happened on more than one occasion and sometimes when you think you’ll be there 1.5-2hrs you end up there longer because of this problem.
On the last visit they forgot two desserts, (we received 2/4) one was my poor toddlers ice cream and one a Sunday. When I eventually got someone’s attention to remind them we were 2 desserts short, they turned up with the Sunday clearly not put together by a chef but by a member of the waiting staff, it was basic, not nice and frankly embarrassing stuff.
Staff need a bit of re-training and guidance.

Seriously with the number of vegans and vegetarians around, how can a restaurant be serving chips fried in the same fryer as their wings?

Been a regular for years & very disappointed to see this place slipping down the slippery slope. Great vibe music & ambience.

Cocktails arrived half glass full. Manager said ther were agency staff & not permanent staff. Still no excuse to cheat the customer. Manager needs a course in customer skills. Seriously lacking.

Food lack lustre consistently. Plenty of other places to spend your money in hatch end high street.

Visited on Sat 17 March at lunchtime and the last couple of times I've visited the service has been getting from bad to worse and this was the final straw. The restaurant wasnt that busy, there were a couple of large tables and a few smaller ones doted around. i was greeted by a not so friendly person and was asked to wait. When I was finally seated it took the staff 20mins to come and take my drinks order and by a member of staff that stunk of alcohol! The wrong order arrived but no surprises there! and what was meant to be a nice quiet lunch turned out to have irish dancing performance. Customer service was awful and this really needs to be addressed as the time before i visited i actually walked out after 10 mins as no one acknowledged me. I have to say as a positive the only saving grace is a member of staff called Paige who was rushed off her feet as her colleagues were either drunk or just being lazy, who still made the time to address the incorrect order with a smile on her face. She is an asset to this establishment .
