I regularly visit the Monkey Puzzle, on this occasion I took my daughter and 2 children aged 7yrs & 4yrs old. Good menu selection for children, children provided with crayons and colouring sheet to keep them occupied. The only problem was that with two young children it would be good not to be kept waiting for as long as we... More

Food was lovely and well presented without too long a wait but when you see the restaurant busy you do expect a wait. I thought that service was good and the staff were friendly. Overall, I am happy with the standard of this restaurant and although I had difficulty choosing from the menu as it was very big I will... More

The Monkey Puzzle is overpriced i feel. The quality of the food is average but the prices are quite high if you are not purchasing from the set menu. The service is slow food wise but ok for drinks.

We stopped here for a bite to eat on the way home and it was unfortunately awful (even though it was surprisingly busy)! We ordered a chicken burger (because they didn't have cod) and a beef burger. My chicken burger was on the verge of being underdone, it didn't come with onion rings (which was all I was looking forward... More

We had our evening meal here as chessington hotel was expensive. The food was lovely and great value for money, we eat before 630pm so we got the offers and it's well worth it. Unlimited soft drinks were also a bonus. The kids offer was also well worth it with a drink and dessert included. The staff were very polite... More

We arranged to meet my son and his girlfriend at The Monkey Puzzle after their day out at the neighbouring Chessington World of Adventures. A typical Beefeater establishment, with the bar service being somewhat apathetic, despite very few customers. Indeed, when we returned our empty glasses to the bar before proceeding to the restaurant no thanks were proferred. We were... More
