I nipped in here for a quick dinner and a couple of special beers. Despite having visited a number of times previously, it's the first time I have left a little underwhelmed.
I was seated quickly and service was OK. Worryingly, my food arrived no more than 60 seconds after I ordered it, which must mean the half roast chicken I ordered had been sitting under a heat lamp awaiting the next order. Whilst the chicken may not have suffered unduly from the time under the heat lamp as it was moist and tasty, the fries that accompanied it certainly did.
The atmosphere in Belgos is normally superb. Seating is often alongside strangers akin to Wagamamma if you're familiar with that restaurant? However, on this occasion a coach load of noisy young school kids made it more like a trip to the school canteen than a more adult environment.
Service charge is automatically added to the bill, which is something I think the UK is not yet accustomed to? I'll return, but will specify fresh food next time I think.
It's worth a visit just to sample some of their large selection of Belgian beer.
