Lunch with my sister

We were warmly welcomed and seated on the table of our choice, and our drinks order was taken immediately; a good start. We ordered a sharing starter which arrived promptly. We then waited for nearly 40 minutes for our mains....my sister enquired if our food was on its way, and we were assured it... read more

My mother and I were in a rush to grab a quick bite to eat and get back on the street to see the sights. We actually ended up eating here twice during our trip. Simple food done right. Would certainly go back again.

We were served by Conchita who was lovely & attentive. We had the saver menu and were both really happy with our choices, the portion size and the flavours. Will definitely go again.

Not very impressed with the food, had eggs Benedict and it wasn't very nice at all, also in the restaurant and especially downstairs in the bathrooms (which aren't nice at all) was a terribly strong smell of potatoes - table behind were complaining too about their food - definitely one to miss!!

Clean and quick place to grab some local favorites like fish and chips. They also have milkshakes but don't expect anything too fancy. This is more like pub food, without the pub;)

Wedding Anniversary Mini Break Review... Went to this restaurant on our last morning in the city ( 24/7/15) and it ruined a fantastic few days of great restaurants. We was not greeted nicely by the woman working there that morning. She showed in her appearance she honestly did not want that shift and did not want us in for breakfast.... More

We were seated immediately and kids were made to feel more than welcome. Menu was spot on and had a perfect choice for the children. We'd chosen not to have starters and went straight for mains. The boys both chose fish fingers and although the meal came with baked beans the waitresses were very accommodating in making changes for our... More

Ordered our meals and the starters came and went before we even had any drinks turn up. Starters were quite tasty though. Waited a bit longer than normal for mains. Husband had a tower burger and chips and I had a salmon salad, both meals were stone cold, I can't say for sure whether mine was supposed to be or... More

Very good simple food. A large variety of food options. In the US, it would be defined as a family style restaurant. I had spaghetti. Interestingly, I was asked if I wanted chips with that. This is a chain so I would bet that the quality of food here would be carried on to others in the chain.

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Neighborhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
