Great experience as always ! The vegan mezze tray was really nice ! One of my top favourite places to eat with family and friends. At times it can get really noisy though ... like it was last weekend. But the food and service compensates by far

This is a great brunch restaurant, but dinner was a little disappointing. The food was good, but all very salty. The decor/table is very ordinary and the service was lacking. I'll be back for brunch, but not for dinner again.

We booked a table for breakfast, the tables were well spaced out, all the waiting staff were wearing masks, the service was efficient and friendly and the prosecco tasted wonderful. This is a really nice place to eat, great staff.

First time eating out since lockdown restrictions lifted and in true Brother Hubbard style, it didn’t disappoint. Tables set apart, lovely lighting so the atmosphere wasn’t compromised and the food (as always) was so full of flavour. Excellent value too.

I love Bro Hubbard for casual, healthy dining, with Middle Eastern flavours and influences. Lovely ambience and the trailing plants create a nice Babylon vibe!

Form the start of our evening the staff were outstanding. We was greeted warmly and when seated was talked through the menu. The food is exceptional, so well presented, tasty, and served promptly, we enjoyed the sharing menu. The room is very comfortable and a nice environment to enjoy our meal in. I would also say that it was great value for money. Overall a wonderful evening without any negativity. We definitely will be going back soon.

Food was really good and so was the service - but after about 30 mins of being there it got quite cold and drafty. We moved seats as we thought draft came from door but it didn't help. Also, we felt that 12.95 for pancake dessert was quite expensive.

Lovely ambience and great food. We came for brunch. The coffee was flavourful. I had the vegan mezze (with fried halloumi), my sister had the full hubbard breakfast, and my wife had the eggs baba bida. All the dishes were delicious and beautifully presented. Would definitely eat here again!

We loved this place. A place where I have already been and I loved its food. The service by every waiter/waitress was really attentive and kind. I got the cod and I particularly enjoyed the delicate mixing of tastes.

We opted for the vegan sharing menu. The food tasted fine, but portions are on the smaller size, particularly the sharing starter. The options for the main course (larger plates) is very limited.
Annoyingly, the water glasses and a fork we were given we not very clean. The folk are a small piece of lettuce or leaf dried onto it.
The entrance to the restaurant is a bit makeshift after you walk past the items for sale (which we really liked).
The restaurant was busy, but not overly so. The space could do with background music as it was possible to hear multiple conversations going on, which was annoying.

Thanks for visiting. We are surprised if you felt our portions were small - sincerely, we get a lot of people telling us how much they enjoy the variety of the food and the portioning of same. We've 5 mains but for the special vegan sharing menu, we'd a choice of 2 (this wouldn't be unusual for a sharing menu, nor would it be unusual for vegan choices from a restaurant that caters for all types of customers). Apologies about the fork/glasses -had you let us know, we'd have fixed it immediately!

Mediocre food - no spices or good mixes as you’d expect from Middle East

Horrible wine

Ok prices

Responded on 3 February 2020

Hi and sorry if you didn't love our food or our wine. We know we cannot please everyone - try as we might - and apologies if this was the case for you. We use a lot of fragrant (but not hot) spices in our food which is based on, and inspired by, very traditional Middle Eastern recipes and ingredients. We have lots of very regular customers from the Middle East who really enjoy our food for this reason! Again, sorry if it wasn't for you and thanks for stopping by nonetheless.
