The vegetable soup lacked substance and flavour. Steak pie was the only decent choice available for a Sunday lunch on... read more

Was a bit disappointed by the view, seeing as the place is called "Windows". We had a window seat but they all looked onto a grey metallic side of a building, so a window seat was,nt such a great advantage! Starting with the drinks, they do not do any draught lager but the waiter pointed to six bottled beers on... More

Great choice and all very well presented. On inclusive/pre theatre menu there are some surcharges but still makes it a very reasonable offer. Friendly, welcoming staff and convivial atmosphere. Even when one item became unavailable they offered the extended selection at no extra charge.

Visited the restaurant today with a friend for lunch and found the service ver poor. We arrived at 12 30 and we were only the second people in the restaurant. Although the menu was brought over fairly quickly we sat for some time before our order was taken. We ordered soup which arrived without spoons and we had to wait... More

Took our granddaughter out for Sunday lunch recently and decided on an old favourite of ours, "Windows" in The Carlton George. This used to be place where standards were always very high, from service to the quality and quantity of food served. On this occasion I was somwhat disappointed first of all by the very limited choice on offer from... More
