“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

We heard a lot about this place from friends and decided to give it a try. The fries that we ordered were all dark brown and definitely burnt. We couldn't eat them. We didn't want to send them back because we hate confrontation. The fish was OK. The service was slow. We'll not be back...

“We are lucky enough to be able to walk here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

We're in here once a week, The Gains is our local eatery and we always enjoy the food and the family friendly atmosphere.

As regulars, the sisters know us and remember our fav menu items. For example, fresh coffee and creamers arrive shortly after we sit. All I have to say is pizza and they know what toppings I pick (double cheese, pepperoni and mushrooms). The burgers are awesome and the fries are fresh cut. The soup of the day and the specials are excellent as well.

The place is spotless, comfortable but kinda homey. You go to the Gains for the food and the family - the regulars that come back time after time are proof of that. You can also get most of the menu including pizza and loaded nachos for pick up as well.

So we'll be there Tuesday for supper. Cya there!

“Best Homemade burger in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

Yes you heard right. I have been in London for 2 years now and have been looking for the best burger in town. And I found it here at the Gainsborough. Nice family unassuming restaurant. Neat, clean, with friendly service and great food! Everything looked so good! I went for the burger and was glad I got the home cut fries with it. Delicious! Just like we used to make at home. I noticed special orders and service for a little girls' order. Nice of them. I will have the pizza next time as I hear it is excellent. Give this a try, you wont regret it.

“Really Good Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

We kept driving by this place on the way to the shopping center at Fanshawe and Hyde Park Road and after checking reviews, decided to stop in for a pizza dinner. We split a battered mushroom appetizer and a medium pizza. It's true that the decor isn't fancy or modern but who cares when the food is this good and inexpensive, especially the very hearty pizza! There was so much cheese and excellent quality toppings on the pizza, it puts most other pizza places to shame. It was all we could do to eat two pieces each of the medium, and half an appetizer, and we walked in the door just famished! Lord Gainsborough is now one of our top choices for pizza in London. Next time we are shopping at Hyde Park and are lazy to cook, we will either stop in or call in a pickup order for a pizza.
