We went for supper prior to a London Knights game. No parking, unless you use the garage across the street that also services Bud Gardens and the Covent Garden Market. Food was good, but pricey for a burger joint. Would I go again? Perhaps, but only because it is close to the Gardens, and we have to pay to park... More

Nice place with quite a unique interior design. Everything is done there with a certain "taste", from the tables to the menus and the names the burgers have. Great burgers and really nice staff. Could be a little cheaper but I guess you gotta pay a little more than some places for a really good food and experience. Highly recommend... More

Saturday lunch at The Works was wonderful. It's a kind of post-apocalyptic atmosphere, with chain link fences around each area, but the 70s and 60s music almost makes up for it. The Son of a Beech burger, with turkey and a soft, white bun was fantastic. Very flavourful and cooked perfectly. Good meal.

A huge gaggle of us met for a Saturday lunch, with nieces and nephews and five kids who were six and under. The staff did a great job accommodating us to two large tables, collecting everyone's orders, explaining how the burgers are cooked fresh and will likely have a bit of pink in the middle but gave those the option...

The Works is one of my favorite restaurants. The food quality is excellent, the staff are friendly and the atmosphere is fun. There are so many burgers to choose from. On my most recent trip, my boyfriend and I had been in Cuba for a week and the food there was terrible. We were craving a Works burger. As soon... More

The service, well it was like being served by good friends. We tried a variety of dishes, everything was simply amazing. Barbara and her staff of family and friends have real passion for creating and presenting delicious family recipes in a friendly welcoming environment.

From my first visit a few years back, I have been a regular customer of The Works, and have introduced many family/friends to this great place. The atmosphere is casual, fun and friendly. You feel like you are in an industrial warehouse. It's a great family environment, and works well for a group of adults enjoying a fun meal out.... More
