When we stayed in London, after having tried some Italian and Chinese cuisine, we wanted to taste some traditional fish and chips and we found this amazing place. Not only did we like the food, we also got a Garfunkel’s voucher with 20% discount for our next meal. We liked the staff and service also, and had to visit the... More

We ate in this branch of garfunkels this evening. There were five adults, one five year old and an 11 month old. The food was great and the waitresses very helpful and friendly. What let the place down was a bloke who I assume to be the manager who was on a power trip. He strutted around the place ordering... More

had a great meal here and the staff were very helpful and cheerful, the only reason i didn't give it an excellent was because we asked for a soda and lime and they didnt have any lime cordial! The waiter tried his best with a large slice of fresh lime though

A second visit here; the first (a couple of years ago) was very good with great food and service. This time they were busy and clearly run off their feet. We had to wait a little while for a table, then again a while for service, then for the plates to be removed and the next course to be brought... More

The food served is fine for both breakfast and dinner, but the service is slow and disorganized. It seems to take a long time to get waited on then a longer time for the meals to be served. We ate at a couple of different Garfunkel's and issues were similar at both.

Having heard so many pretentious types suggest that this chain was one of the best places to eat if you were on a budget or in a hurry I thought that I would check it out. Having been seated for about 20 minutes I believe that the idea of fast food was a little ironic. Another 10 minutes later and... More
