When we asked the staff they said there was an issue in the kitchen but we were drinking beer and over looking Leicester Square which... More

Ate here not long ago and i'd say its quite over priced for what it is. Nothing special. I felt like this was made in a cafe up a market somewhere.

My original order not available they had run out of stock, my second choice would have been nice had it been warm. This was my first time here I was not very impressed.

We left it late looking for somewhere to eat in this area, and most were booked. This had space so we just went in. Nothing very special, meals were only ok, hard to say much about this place, ok if you really want to sit down and you can't get in elsewhere. but service was fast.....a good thing.

First time at Garfunkel's, food was really nice, great selection at great prices. Staff warm and friendly, service was quick and attentive without being intrusive and atmosphere was nice. Spending time with family on a trip to London overall very enjoyable.

This was probably our 4th visit to this restaurant. Like before, we were happy with both the food and the service. We were attended to immediately by a pleasant server and received our food within 10 minutes (it was only 16:30 and three quarters full which may have helped). The food was tasty and plentiful and the server frequently asked... More

It's just been announced that we've made the shortlist for the top 3 businesses in the Best Multiple Foodservice Operator Award, as part of the 2015 National Fish & Chip Awards. Our Fish & Chips are a true British classic, made with our very own London Pride beer batter and served with a generous helping of chunky chips. So if you haven't been in to try them, now is your chance... They are soon to be award winning (well, fingers crossed!).

Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
