We came on here on new year's day as pretty much everywhere else was shut, but were really pleased with our meal. For starters we had nachos (generous portion) and the squid (really tender in a light batter) which were very tasty. For mains we opted for the rodeo (chicken) and the brisket burger. Both were a very generous portion,... More

The food was not that good - in fact, a hamburger made with a fibrous beef made one diner have difficulty swallowing. Service was borderline bad/cavalier. Water refills and bill had to be requested. The only bright spot - an efficient manager who seemed to be the only one working in the entire place. I would venture to guess that... More

Food is pretty expensive for what it is, service is below average and there's 'automatically added gratuity' just to rub it in. The food was brought out quickly though. Wouldn't eat here again.

Friendly waitress, ordered a burger as had eaten a good one once before. But in spite of ordering medium it came overcooked and was in fact rubbery and tasteless. I could have complained but couldn't be bothered. My wife had a salad which was fine but quite small. The best thing was the side of sweet potatoes

I had an Indian dish for lunch which I found disappointing. The fresh ginger smoothie, though was delicious. Service was friendly in a fake sort of way. I didn't enjoy the experience and found the bill for lunch very high.

Visited this restaurant after a visit to the National Hospital in Queen Square - was shown a table for 4 ( as we were meeting friends for lunch) and then made to feel very uncomfortable as we were told my husbands wheel chair was blocking the walk way. By the way it was not.........but with great difficulty we manoeuvred the... More

A great venue to eat if staying in Bloomsbury, London. A great menu which has plenty of choice at great prices. The staff are great and the food is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble and the atmosphere makes it a great place to eat.

We were in the area and decided to pop in for dinner and we do not regret it. The menu offers different types of cuisine from Indian to Italian to American. The service was excellent and food was appetizing. The only fault I can give is that wine should be served in proper wine glasses and not the normal Soft... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
