“pleasant, local and fortunately without internal security cameras”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

the very proximate Entree restaurant on Battersea Rise suffers from this gross invasion of privacy, ie the cameras. ghastly. fortunately Scoffers is an old school, quite charming, independent and the local area is enhanced from having an option such as Scoffers.

they must have taken note of various other reviewers complaining about the service. on the recent night that we went the service was impeccable, as was the price. we went unknowingly on a night when all food was 1/2 price, fantastic! oddly they are closed for 2 x evenings during the week, so coupled with the need to get the punters in by the 1/2 pricing, i get the feeling that the ownership is not chasing the £££££££££'s. Bravo!

the wine list is on the basic to mid level selection, though for Scoffers market position and customer type, it is probably is about right. My mind almost went Sauvignon Blank for a moment trying to remember what we shared, but i think it was a NZ SB.

the menu is solid middle class comfort food which in our instances was easy to choose from and then cooked to perfection.

all together a successful evening. the simple question is, would you want to go back, given the endless other options in the locality. the easy response is yes.

if you dislike the public school types, then stay away from here.

“Tasty meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

Visited on locals night where you get 50% off food, and enjoyed a nice meal for a v reasonable price. Had halloumi and vegetable skewers with pitta and guacamole which was really tasty - tho had food envy when i saw another guest receiving a huge burger which looked amazing! Also restaurant interior is really atmospheric - lovely night. Don't know why there are bad reviews though have only tried 1 dish! Prices would be fairly steep if dining on a non locals night

“Good evening with a family group”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

We had a variety of food between. 8 of us and enjoyed it. Service was on the slow side but it didn't really matter to us as we weren't in a hurry. We didn't have starters as they were mostly not gluten free which one of pur party neded ( there was 1 option only which she didn't like!). Bill reasonable for what we had

“Cosy hidden gem, delicious food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

We accidentally found this little gem during our strolls to the common one sunday. We walked in for brunch and were very well served by the polite staff. the brunch menu is basic, but delicious. Unfortunately they don't do egg white omelettes as a substitute for regular omelettes, which is a bummer. The best part of the restaurant is the beautiful tree that they have incorporated into the room. We have since been back for many a brunch and a few dinners. The dinner menu is great, and the food is delicious. The portions are fairly large, or order accordingly!
We have never had a complaint about the food or the service, and will keep going back there.

“A lot of work to be done on service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Sat there for 20 mins once sat down and had to go to the bar to order some drinks. Ordered another round and didn't arrive for another 20 mins. Got food and it was cold and had to sent back. A nice venue but think the staff need some training!
