This Beefeater is excellent, mainly driven by the team who work there. Staff such as Paul, Magic, Georgina, Felix etc go out of their way to make sure that they provide an excellent standard of service. This is a recently refurbished restaurant, few teething problems initially, but food is definitely back there with some of the best food in the... More

When we arrived they seemed rather short staffed so we were waiting to be seated for a while, which didn't bother us. Once we were seated we all felt uncomfortable because member of staff was too over friendly and then presurising us into buying a flat bread whilst we took a look at the menu, I understand the concept of...

The picture speaks volumes. Meant to be a 74 signature steak..'Triangular special cut'!!!!! Worst effort from any Beefeater ive ever been to..Fed up to the back teeth of the service and quality at this place. Very hit and miss..Gone downhill since the refit. The venue is clean and crispy fresh thats as good as it gets...

Came here expecting a lovely bbq salad which I had in another beefeater. For nearly £10 I was expecting the same. Only to have a small salad which a chicken breast thrown on top and a little bbq sauce. Not impressed.
