Food was served in big portions which is always great. Was delicious. Staff are friendly and helpful. There was also a live band for the night but it didn’t play any songs that’s I knew - it was still pleasant to hear. The only negative would be that the restaurant was too dark. It could have been a little bit brighter!

Quick note to say I seldom complain or leave a bad review but cannot comprehend how there are so many glowing reviews for this place.

Had dinner here with a group of friends on a busy Saturday night. When I arrived, I was told the table wasn't ready and they would come and find me as soon as they had cleared it. I waited 15 minutes before asking the same girl to check on the status, and while she was checking with her back to me, another customer asked her the same question and the waitress walked off with her, apologising to her for the waiting time, and leaving me standing there! I then asked someone else at the door, who completely ignored me as if I wasn't there, prioritising a customer who was trying their luck at getting a table. Eventually, I found someone helpful who told me my table was in fact ready... But had to wait another 5 minutes for someone to take us.

The waiter at our table was very pleasant and we were offered a drinks table when our booking was up, but the service was extremely slow and it was hard to tell the waiters apart as they do not wear a uniform.

Ordered the beef brisket and the beef itself was very tasty, but the slaw and pickles were really bad accompaniments. Mac and cheese very good, as were the cocktails! Very lively on a Saturday night so a cool ambience too!

I would not recommend based on the poor service and food is definitely not worth the prices they charge.

Food was great but service was slow. Food order was taken 45 mins after we sat down for dinner but then we were rushed out because of another booking.

I would recommend this place to anyone who likes to indulge in ambient scenery whilst eating good food and being amongst the London energy.
The service and staff are very friendly and In no way annoying! If you sit back whilst sipping your cold beverage and just observe your surroundings - you will notice everyone is either smiling laughing or tucking away into there meaty dish! You can not complain about the prices of the food and drink.. you can’t! The drink prices are standard London prices ranging from £5 a pint and the food prices are below average and for the quality you’re getting it’s very good for value! Recommended to couples - groups of friends - family’s ... everyone!
Can’t wait to go back!

Food was great but we were made to feel like we were under pressure to order and eat quickly and then leave. Every time our waiter came over he kept reminding us we only had the table for a certain time and would stand there constantly until we decided our orders. It was pressurising, unfriendly and just made everything rushed and awkward.

The food wasn’t as good as we’ve had on previous visits to this and other Blues kitchens. Unfortunately the Brisket was quite dry and for some reason they no longer serve burnt ends which was the best thing on the menu! Other than that the rest of the food was ok. They need to up their game though.

Attended for my birthday, although the booking form asked if it was an occasion it was not marked in any way. That aside the waitress that took care of us was brilliant, the food was good and arrived in a timely fashion. The music was absolutely brilliant. I’m an old boy now, but I would definitely go back. Overall a vibrant eating and music venue. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Lovey atmosphere and service! The food was nice but some of it was cold or room temperature, such as the poached eggs on the avocado on toast, by the time we got it. Had the French Toast which was lovely, nice touch with the cornflakes, just wish there were more blueberries on top as the ones inside became slightly soft due to being heated. Overall would recommend and had a lovely time

I love the place, the atmosphere is vibrant and fun. We had dinner on a saturday followed by drinks and live gig upstairs. The crowd is fun and the vibe is positive.
