It's just been announced that we've made the shortlist for the top 3 businesses in the Best Multiple Foodservice Operator Award, as part of the 2015 National Fish & Chip Awards. Our Fish & Chips are a true British classic, made with our very own London Pride beer batter and served with a generous helping of chunky chips. So if you haven't been in to try them, now is your chance... They are soon to be award winning (well, fingers crossed!).

Went here for a light breakfast. Served for the most part by a particularly abrupt and unsmiling young woman who clearly new nothing about service. Food was just about acceptable. Menu promises refill of coffee when ordering a large coffee but don't expect it to be offered, you have to chase them for it. Wont be troubling her again.

Very good customer service by this member of staff and would... More

A branch of Garfunkel's is always my preferred choice for a meal when I am out and about anywhere, and the one in Irving Street, London is a particular favourite. The food is always excellent, well cooked with generous portions, and the staff are welcoming and attentive without being intrusive. A perfect place to end a city visit, or to... More
