We went in here for lunch because we had time to kill before catching a train. It's right over the road from Paddington, so really convenient. A man who looked managerial gave us a two seater booth first of all, but when he noticed our bags he moved us straightaway to a different table so that we would have more... More

We were looking for a place to eat traditional fish & chips while in London and found this place. The food was delicious. Service was pretty good. You probably could have gotten the same meal for less somewhere else but overall we had a good experience here.

Burgers were alright, the service was quite good. I quite liked the atmosphere, it was comfortable. Overall a decent place to go to for lunch if you're out shopping.

Hi, I visited Garfunkel's on Irving Street on Friday night there. It was going well and the starters were nice but took over 20 minutes to receive. We then received out main courses and this is where the disappointment was. My girlfriend ordered lamb shank and when it came the lamb shank was disappointing and the vegetables were all over...

with many mass chains and busy places it's easy to be disappointed but in this case we were really pleasantly surprised. the staff were friendly and attentive the food was tasty and well prepared and although it was busy we didn't have to wait. they even have good beer! would recommend without hesitation.

Tasty burgers, good atmosphere. A lot of red colour. They serve Pride of London. Was there in January, so could only sit inside. However they have a really nice terrace
