The manager sat next to me and didn't even acknowledge me. For the price of the food I did not feel welcomed. The food was good but over priced.

If you're too late to get dinner cos of your busy day exploring & if you stay at Club Quarters-this restaurant is a bar most of the time but has good food available till late. The meat loaf & chicken meals are good but the buffalo wings - not too good. And it's a bar, so expect the raucous

Just outside our hotel, and a great place to grab a beer before dinner. Just like the other locations of the Elephant & Castle, you get what you expect in service and quality of food.

The food selections were good and well-prepared. We liked everything we had and ate there four times during eight days, mostly for breakfast because it opens so early. However, we found alcoholic beverages to be very expensive. Service staff was pleasant and helpful. It is a pub with bar, so it is definitely not fine dining but a really good... More

I liked it just fine for what it was. No complaints. Not fancy, just above average food and across the street from Le Meridian where I stayed. The service was good.

I was one of the very first customers on the first day that this establishment opened its doors to the public. The food was good and the service was equally as good, but nothing brag about. I used to frequent this restaurant 3-4 times per month but stopped going there in mid-2013 because the food wasn't as good as it... More
