    We love going to the Londoner, it's a great place especially sitting on the terrace. David, our waiter was very attentive and friendly which made our experience even better, thank you! The only thing I would recommend is for the DJ to turn the music down slightly as it was too noisy to have a proper conversation.

    Excellent service by the staff, we were a party of 3 and very well looked after by the entire team who served us. Four hours of food and drinks in a great atmosphere, what else do you need on a girls evening out!

    What has happened to this place? A once fabulous cocktail menu reduced to one page of 8 to choose from. Poor service. I have been several times and the last in December 2023, but the cocktail menu has shrunk. What happened to the American lady mixologist?
