Visited this place for lunch while moving around hyde park. You have to order food at the counter and give your table number and they get it for you at your table once its ready. The food is terrible. Even basic items like fish n chips and burgers are tasteless. The view is awesome. They have a separate section for... More

We ate in this place on a Sunday in April. The place isn't bad in itself, the location is great, and the food was good. The price is a bit high for the food you get, but I suppose that is normal when you go to eat in a central place like that, on the serpentine bank. The very bad... More

I met a group of friends here for lunch one Sunday in June. The weather was ok although not brilliant. We liked being able to sit outside by the lake and order food and drinks at ease. The waiters were friendly and helpful although you do need to order your food at the counter (or at peak times at the... More

Food is a bit pricey (Burger and a drink £15) ,that was expected since it's one of a few places to get food in Hyde park but the burger itself was very average not bad not great just Blah maybe get a signature sauce or something to remember you by. They have glass runners but no waiters so you order... More

What a fabulous location! My family all had the day off & we sat here drinking & admiring the view for over 7 hours on Wednesday. Plenty of seating, facilities good and clean. Menu is a bit limited, but I liked that you queue for the bar - it seems a lot fairer. Wondered why I hadn't spent more time... More

We called in here while making our way back to the railway station from the centre. Nice place to stop and watch the wildlife on the edge of the Serpentine. There were Herons, Swans, Ducks and ducklings all in very close proximity which made for a nice hour spent relaxing. Cake and coffee was nice too with plenty of quality... More

It's quite pricey here but with the lovely views, including the tame heron, and delicious food it's worth it.

The location is superb for breakfast on a sunny summer morning but the same can't be said for the food. We ordered Eggs Benedict and a full English. My daughter received and finished her eggs before mine arrived. Good quality ingredients were presented in a most unappetising way. A huge plateful of sausage,bacon, eggs etc with four slices of toast... More
