We had a good experience at Garfunkels. The service was friendly, and we were seated straight away (it was around 5:20 pm). The service was incredibly quick, with both of our meals arriving in less than 10 minutes. We would definitely visit again.

Member of staff outside very well spoken and smiley, it is a shame it can't be said for the people serving the tables. Rude, didnt smile once to name a few things...food average but okay enough not to complain....won't return if i am in london to this garfunkel's....

Great fast service as needed to get to a show, but food wasn't the best quality or quantity. Especially for the price and then having added service charge.

I came here with my Mum and my 7 year old twin girls after a long day in London during half-term so we were all quite tired. We got here for 5:45pm and had to wait 10 minutes for a table. After we were sat down the service was extremely slow and it took ages to get our order taken... More

Came here for lunch yesterday. Avocado on soggy bread - not toast all day breakfast was cold. Ham and eggs were thrown on top of chips and eggs barely cooked. Told manager and his response was oh I'm sorry. No interest and extremely poor service. I suppose "tourists" don't come back so not important. We definitely will never use Garfunkels... More

My wife and I came here yesterday for brunch ahead of a full packed day in London. Food was good. My wife's salmon and egg seemed a bit over priced but my full English was excellent value for money. Would recommend getting a table on the left side of the restaurant because it gets a bit drafty otherwise every time... More

In London for family day out, struggled to find somewhere to eat on a busy Saturday night but settled for Garfunkels. Male staff member at the door was very polite and advised table for 6 of us would be 20 mins or so. Sure enough table was available on time. Waitress at our table was friendly enough but nothing special... More

Went for breakfast in a party of seven and my sister and I, who both have coeliac disease, were disappointed to be told that they didn't have any gluten free bread. The waitress said she thought the sausages would contain gluten (but didn't offer to go and check), so that pretty much ruled the 'full English' out. We both had... More

It's just been announced that we've made the shortlist for the top 3 businesses in the Best Multiple Foodservice Operator Award, as part of the 2015 National Fish & Chip Awards. Our Fish & Chips are a true British classic, made with our very own London Pride beer batter and served with a generous helping of chunky chips. So if you haven't been in to try them, now is your chance... They are soon to be award winning (well, fingers crossed!).
