It was our first meal out of lockdown, and it was amazing! Our waitress was lovely, helpful and funny! The food was delicious, the ECB burger and halloumi fries.. would recommend. I always love Evelyn’s but yesterday was my favourite visit. Can’t wait to return. Thank you team ECB.

Steak was extremely chewy and rubbery. Quality was poor.

Service was good so was the ambiance.

I wouldn’t order steak again if I go back and don’t recommend it.

Brilliant service as usual. Only down fall is that the roast could’ve had a little more gravy.

I am so happy they have reopened and that they accept bookings in this way. Everyone inside was respectful of spaces and I'm glad the toilets downstairs were opened. Food was great. Prices have definitely gone up. I tried a Lavender Latte and my mind was blown. So so delicious. I can't stop thinking about it. Thanks for a lovely sit down dining experience.

After having to cancel our last booking due to lockdown this was a joy.
The service, food, staff, ambience were all top class. We’d missed it so much. It was as if we’d never been away. Plenty of room between tables and plenty of hand sanitiser stations around the restaurant. The best part, we never once felt uncomfortable. If this is what, ‘new normal,’ looks like,
we’re in.

Amazing food , portions are good but ask for the incredible chips if you are ordering the merguez brioche from the brunch menu. I had the gluten free shakahuka and it was delicious. Best bit was the chocolate brownie and ice cream that was so nutty and crumbly- even the non GF peeps loved it.

First meal back since lockdown became a thing and I couldn’t have asked for more. The service was superb, the food was amazing as always and it felt as normal as it could be. Everything was well spaced, there was proper social distancing in place but not at the expense of atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Food was amazing, delicious, fresh, nice portion sizes. Service was a little slow, with only two waiters, we had a table booked, and when we arrived we waited about 10 minutes for someone to come to the front to seat us, there is no one stationed at the door/ front desk so it’s a bit confusing when you arrive, especially as there were a lot of walk ins too. Would be back for sure, as the food was amazing!

First place we went to post lockdown and the service was brilliant. Food delicious and all round lovely experience even though it could have been a bit anxious. Special thanks to the guy (sorry we didn't get your name!) who brought me a candle in my brownie for my birthday!
