“Food great, staff need to raise the bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We enjoyed the food and it was really tasty, good wines on the list but the service just let the place down; we appreciate they are starting to use a new app system for ordering but it just wasn't working; our waiter needed training but then we were intermittently served by another member of staff and he was really good. Took ages to get our drinks etc etc anyway wouldn't stop us going again.

“Wonderful food at Katong”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This is a lunch date and the place is recommended by my friend

I've never expected a British eatery at katong - the ambience is nice except that it's not air-conditioned (yes, I'm a typical Singaporean who needs her AC). My friend told me that they're serving all organic food with no salt added.

We ordered the capsicum quiche with warmed pumpkin salad, prawn cocktail and bread with brie cheese. Trust me, none of the food was bland. They were all yum! Loved the quiche - great capsicum flavor with no so 'sickening' taste of the egg/cheese filling of quiche. Greatest was the pumpkin salad-soft and fragrant. Brie was soft and mellow - great on the multigrain bread.

service was prompt and good. Owner is very knowledgeable abt her food.

I'll definitely be back again!

“Great little local restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Been here a few times with friends and family. You need to book for dinner at weekends, but should be OK just turning up during week. Make sure you get a table inside or under awning at front. Tables down side street are poor and can be dangerous, with open gratings and passing pedestrians. Very friendly staff and owner, who will chat about food, wine, origins and everything. Some good beers and very reasonable range of wines. The genuine prawn cocktail starter is the best ever. If you like sausage and mash, this is the place to come. Deserts are mouth watering.

“A gem in Katong!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Stumbled on this gem by accident when it first opened and I've been going back ever since. One of my favorites is the braised beef. Omg! cooked for 8 hours and melts into that lovely gravy. The bread and butter pud is simply wonderful. Those two are my all time favorite and keep on coming back to it though the other items on the menu are pretty good too. The head chef is English and knows her stuff so you know you are getting basically good English recipes. The breakfast is good too.
