I would highly recommend the pancakes I still can’t believe how light and fluffy they were. The staff really made the place as they were so friendly.

Walked it to Evelyns after booking a table a few days before. They immediately cramped us up next to two other tables of people to the point where we could hear their entire conversation. We then asked if we could move and the manager told us 'no', he was very rude and completely unsympathetic to the fact that we couldn't hear ourselves think. The music was really loud and the environment is quite stressful. We ended up leaving before eating (they still made us pay for our meals which we didn't even see). The manager was incredibly disrespectful and rude. I will continue to dissuade everyone who asks me about evelyns from going. I've never been more disappointed.

The pancakes are always so so insane!! Thank you for the amazing service (also the adorable bartender guy who wished me a happy birthday so service is always 110%) food is beautiful, the price is reasonable for the flavour and quality! I tried the Ivy and the experience was tragic compared to what Evelyns provides. Evelyn’s all the way!

Table all ready for us when we arrived. Friendly greeting and welcome. Menu is fairly limited, but we'd come for the Sunday roast and it was great. Our vegan eaters were very happy with their vegan roasts. Pleasant environment and nicely laid out restaurant. Thanks for a pleasant afternoon.

We had a lovely lunch at Evelyn’s. Two of our party had a few food allergies, the chef was very accommodating and helpful in advising what they could and couldn’t have and what dishes could easily be tweaked. The food was excellent and full of flavour.

I went with two friends for Sunday lunch and it was busy. We had to wait for our table but we were kindly given our first round of drinks on the house to make up for it. We had the roast lamb and roast beef and both were delicious. We will definitely be back!

We booked a table at 2pm and arrived on time however the table was not ready so we did have to wait 20-25 minutes. We did get the first round of drinks free though due to the wait!
Food was great as usual! Would definitely go again.
