“Good Coffee, Good Food, but Fairly Overpriced”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

I go here regularly to study because the coffee is good and the staff are friendly. The food is very good quality, especially the roasts and the toasties, but that said, we are still talking about a £5 cheese toasty. It is a relaxed atmosphere, so sometimes things are a bit slow, but if you're not in a rush, this isn't a problem. As a warning though, it can be quite loud, especially at night. Children are welcome, but that said, the place itself doesn't have a child friendly feel, so children do sometimes become a nuisance as they often seem quite bored.

“Rubbish”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

This is for the one in Seven Dials.

It used to be quite good. Excellent food and decent service.

However the last couple of times we have been it was less so, with the very last time in Decemberfor a Sunday lunch just awful. We went in and it was less than half empty. The reason we went because they promised buy 1 get 1 free for food, or some offer like that. As i said it was half empty so the staff weren't busy. At the bar i asked for 2 menus, a glass of tap water and a coke. The girl behind the bar said for us just to sit down and they'd bring them over in a second. bear in mind that is a very very easy order. 10/15 minutes later we are still sitting there waiting, and our table was in front of the bar anyway. I would have just stood at the bar to wait for the drinks but no they said they would be right over in a sec. So in the end we thought if they can't be bothered to do a simple order then we would spend our money elsewhere. So we left and went to the Good Companions instead.

Absolutely rubbish. They could see us sitting there. Especially since they also do table service, but no one else came up to ask if we were ok. Won't be going there again, you fail.
