We ate here with friends on our way home from an event at the O2. We arrived around 5pm on a Sunday evening and had not pre-booked. The restaurant area was not busy when we arrived but started to fill up. The menu is limited to burgers, pizzas and salads but there are vegetarian options. It's a shame that the... More

We popped in for a drink before our journey home as it had been recommended to us. There weren't any seats free in the bar area unfortunately but plenty in the eating area. When we asked if we could perch we were told no and then the staff member made a face when she thought we weren't looking. Ah well,... More

We visited late Friday afternoon and so was very busy and noisy, with mainly people drinking. We got a table for 2 immediately and were quickly served with a drink. The burgers were very tasty and reasonably priced, quite a limited menu. The waiters were very friendly, helpful and courteous. We had to wait for a while for our food... More

Overpriced. No room to stand or sit. Pointed out an unattended rucksack left on its own for some time. The member of staff we spoke to just laughed and said the owner had probably just gone outside for a smoke. We will not be visiting here again

We went here on Saturday night, family of 4 with 2 children (8 and 9 years old). It seemed like a family friendly restaurant with a kid's menu that even allowed them to draw their own pizza. However, they didn't provide and crayons or other pens to draw in the kids' menu. What place gives kids a menu that's meant... More

Kids meal excellent value. 3 courses and drink for £7.95. 2 kids had cheeseburgers, 1 pizza. Pepperoni very spicy for kids, but otherwise excellent. Good dough balls, choc brownie amazing. Adult burgers awesome. The Reuben I'd definitely recommend. You order sides separate. Huge selection of craft beers too.
