The food was fine, the staff were fine. Was it wow - not really but given that there was a fire alarm and we had to leave half way through our brunch, the management were very good in dealing with that.

Berner's Tavern was, as usual, an amazing experience. Despite the fact the menu seemed quite condensed to what I can recall, the party I was with all had really good courses. The wine was excellent, the cocktails good and the service was great. The venue is beautiful too and there was a real buzz about the place

The Berners Mac and cheese is amazing. My only regret is not saving room for dessert.

I had been to Berners Tavern before, but for dinner, and had enjoyed it each time so I was excited to try it for lunch with visiting friends. Still love the space, service was very good- friendly and efficient - but I, and one of my friends, were really disappointed with our crispy chicken sandwiches. Not much flavour and, not much chicken, and overpriced for something like that. Drinks were delicious, but the champagne was a bit expensive. We still had a great time but the food was disappointing.

We went here to celebrate my daughter’s 30th birthday. We were not disappointed. It is a great place. The room is amazing and it has a very buzzy vibe. Their famous pork pie starter was huge! My daughter felt very special. The staff were very attentive, friendly and professional. The only exception was the person on the restaurant reception who was very rude when I asked politely if there was somewhere to put our bags (I had a small case). It wasn’t just me my son noticed it too. We decided to ignore it so it did not spoil our evening.

Booked for a 16th birthday party of 2 adults and 2 children. Service at all times was pretty good.

However a missed drinks order for the children and a frankly inedible couple of tiny risottos and less than average celeriac clouded the evening a little. Good mac n cheese but at £25 , lemon sole £35 and pork pie! Overall, not really worth £250 for 2 courses and wine.

We had a lovely meal for my birthday. The food was delicious. We had the brunch menu. The only thing that would have improved it would be another couple of dessert options. Out of the 2 on offer, none appealed. It was also quite warm. Still it was a lovely dining experience and I would love to return one day.

Food nice but not worth the price tag. Crab starter priced at £22 but minuscule. Service a bit slow. Waited 20 minutes for our drinks. We were only a table of two and this was at 10-11 pm so not very busy at this point either. Beautiful venue and nice ambience/vibes but doubt I’d be in a hurry to return.

Terrible service
One of our menu came out very late. Ordered hot chocolate and it came out after food. Had to ask for maple syrup for waffle twice. The waiter was not good.

Food not to our expectations. Th signature dishes (2 out of 3, meat) were not available at 9.30 p.m. The service did not ask how we want our meet (raw, medium, etc) ; as a result we had to return our dish for extra cooking, as we did not want it raw.hard to find available waiter. the ambience great, but does not suffice

Great venue, but overpriced food remains somehow ordinary. The sommelier also has a naughty tendency to recommend the most expensive wines on the list.

Nice ambience and friendly staff.
However, the service at the table was slow and inattentive. The food pretty average and very pricey for the quality of the food. Wine also overpriced.
All in all disappointing andI'm afraid we won't be going back again.

Mixed feelings, great venue, outstanding food, but sadly I felt the front of house had a bad service and things were not as smooth as it could be.
