“Nice meal”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Visited with 6 friends on a Saturday, I don't think the service is anything to write home about, we wanted a drink before we sat down for lunch, we sat in the bar area, no other tables taken and waited to be servied (we were informed it was table service), the barman and two waitresses were chatting at the bar, they took absolutely no notice of us, I had to stantd up after 5 minutes and wave several times before she came over. However, once we got her attention our drinks arrived and we were take to our table. The food service was slightly better, the food however was good, 4 of us had various burgers, all cooked correctly and tasted nice, 2 had trout and again said it was nice. So all in all if I was in the area I would go there again and have a burger !

“Good resturant close to Waterloo”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

This is a great meeting place close to Waterloo that has a nice atmosphere and a decent menu. In the evenings, they have live music which is a nice touch.
The menu isn't extensive, but everything on it I have had has been good.

“Good Burgers!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Not an enormous menu, but if you like red meat, this restaurant will work for a quick meal. Close to Waterloo station, so I stopped here while waiting for my train. The burgers are proper minced meat affairs, and were cooked as I like them. Good atmosphere, service and location.

“Extremely Rude Waitress!!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We have been here before and loved the food and service, but shocked to come back on a special occasion to find the rudeness of the staff here unbelievable. We were greeted to "dinner or dessert?!" which we brushed off as thinking it was a language barrier with the Chinese waitress. So we happily sat down where she rudely pointed out where we could sit. After sitting down we asked her for the dessert menu only for her to walk past and throw it on the table. Yes! She threw it onto the table! That was it, spoke to the manager who is disillusioned as to how things can go so wrong.

We didnt come in to be insulted with their poor excuse of customer service. Told the manager we were leaving and will never be recommending this place to anyone ever again.

How can somewhere employee such rude staff and then not care about it is beyond me. We didnt care about wanting any free or discounted food for her service, we just wanted to let the manager know.. but as he couldnt care less, that made us decide to leave.

You can find better customer service in McDonalds.

AVOID!
