Nice patio. The interlocking stones are a bit wonky, but there is lots of room between tables. No loud music blaring so you are still able to carry on a conversation as you eat. Decent location for people watching.
Service? Quick and polite. No complaints there.
Beer? Cold and priced right. Good selection.
Food? NOT! The chicken wings on a recent Monday night were so under-cooked they were practically clucking. The Cajun “dry rub” was nothing more than Club House Cajun seasoning, straight out of the jar. The so-called blue cheese for dipping was just salad dressing, a pretty cheap dressing, at that. I am thinking “No Name”.
On a positive note, the wings were a good size, sold by the pound, so an order worked out to around eight of them. And the fries were not McCain’s, so it scores better than many restaurants in downtown London.
This restaurant has been in business here for a good while now, but I suspect it owes its longevity more to the beer selection and the “faux” British atmosphere inside (it’s head and shoulders above outfits like the Elephant & Castle) rather than to the quality of its food.
Wings are a Monday night special here: 20 bucks for a pitcher of beer and a pound of wings. Unfortunately, considering the quality, this was one meal I absolutely would not recommend.
There’s a lot of potential here, a lot to work with. It just needs somebody to make it happen.
