Opentable and brasserie are not connected on the timings for brunch etc. 4pm is not a brunch timing. Brunch ends at 3.30.

The service was diabolical. There were 3 waitresses for the entire restaurant. We paid for bottomless brunch yet the speed of service was truly shocking, 15 minutes before each round. They then also tried to end our bottomless brunch half an hour early. When we complained the waiter and ‘manager’ were incredibly rude and when we asked to speak to the manager again we were told she had left for the day only for her to suddenly reappear half an jour later. Please avoid.

The service was very good and both our starters were very nice. I had the lamb ragou which was very rich and a bit too spicy for my taste,my husband had a steak which was overly salty. The manager gave us a refund on the steak which was very nice but we would have preferred to have had a good meal.

Cheap(ish) and cheerful. Two for one drinks 5-8pm is a great deal across quite a few selections. Service could have been a little better considering the restaurant wasn’t very busy and there were quite a few servers. Adjoined to the hotel so no doubt this is the aimed clientele.

The food was flavourful, but the price for some cauliflower with harissa was too high. £17 and was also advised to order a side as would not be enough. Some mixed leaves £5. Hmmm

The prices are equivalent to a top London restaurant, not what you expect from a casual dinner at a Brasserie. 3 main courses, 2 alcoholic drinks, tap water and 3 hot drinks = £160!!! We've been going there annually for several years. We will find somewhere else next year. Shame.

It's been a while since I've been there - pleased to say that it was as good as ever.
Breakfast menu is quite interesting with lots of variations on the theme of Eggs Benedict.
I had the Full Veggie as something lighter than the Full English - it was nicely cooked & presented but a small piece of char grilled Halloumi would have made it perfect.
Service is always good without being fawning.

The occasion was in remembrance of my dad's birthday (he passed last year.) I chose the EB because of its proximity to Liverpool St station, as one of my relatives was coming up from Essex and we wanted somewhere close by.

We were there for the 'Brunch Menu' - not necessarily my favourite choice for a meal, but I didn't look very carefully when I booked, but we decided to make the best of it.

First up was the 'shared starters' - six starters to share between three.
It was a varied selection, ranging from a banana/yoghurt mix, to chorizo-flavoured arroncini,
a gin-soaked smoked salmon salad, and another salad of avocado and quinoa.
They were nicely prepared and tasted OK but, looking at the selection, you could almost hear the chef saying, "what else shall we give them...?"

Onto the mains; my wife had the steak and my uncle had the breakfast fry-up special; I ordered the pulled BBQ pork hash with potatoes.
These mains went down very well, although the portion of the fry-up special was a bit too large.
My wife loved her steak (no mean praise, as she is very picky when it comes to steak) and I have to say that the pulled pork hash was one of the best I have ever tasted.

The dessert was a selection of so-so patisserie.
The items we had were fine, but also nothing to write home about.

Regarding staff and ambience, the waiters and waitresses were polite, friendly and efficient - exemplary, in fact.
There was a shift change in the middle of our meal, but you would never know; the handover was seamless, which is quite a feat.

It is a nice venue, a bit echoey at times, and you were very aware that it is really a hotel with a restaurant tacked onto it.
This was reinforced by the prices, which I thought quite steep; the wine was expensive considering we only drank a fairly mediocre Sauvignon Blanc.

In summary, I thought that EB was a bit of a 'business expense account' venue. It didn't have a lot of charm and, although the staff were sweet, I won't be returning.

I have been to Eastway Brasserie before with various friends. Well located near Liverpool Street station. It has a great menu, good 2-for-1 drinks during "happy hour", mocktails and a good wine list. The service was good. For coeliacs, this resaturant will provide gluten-free bread on request. My friend and I both thoroughly enjoyed our meals, the service and the ambience. Initially, the noise level seems quite high but actually you forget that pretty quickly and you can easily talk to fellow diners without shouting.

The meal and venue were all good. One important thing to mention is that apparently Eastway Brasserie do not take bookings from Open Table anymore. I made a booking for my boss on Friday 18th and when he arrived they had no booking under his name and he was told that they only take bookings from Book a Table. Luckily there was a table for him but it could've gone wrong!

I’ve visited the Eastway Brasserie twice now but today was the first time for Brunch.

I have to say, the value for money is excellent. In my opinion, there could be less starters made available and it would be better to allow people the choice of just having a main course as the selection of pastries and desserts on offer would more than make up for the difference.

However, for those who enjoy a hearty (and bottomless if you so desire) brunch, then I would highly recommend this.

A veritable feast with six small brunch dishes to start followed by a choice of a more substantial 'main' plate. Meanwhile, there is a small counter with help yourself pastries and puddings. But since when did brunch become such a full-on meal?!

The noise level rather interfered with the purpose of our lunch: conversation among old friends. Service was good. There wasn’t much on the menu that appealed to me but the prawn and crayfish linguine was fine apart from the squelchy prawns. Reasonable wine. Very handy for Liverpool Street station.

Good for business lunch. I didn’t get what I ordered to eat. Given the service, I couldn’t be bothered to send it back. Then, I was told off for asking one server for a glass of wine, when the other server hadn’t brought the wine ages after ordering it. Service was unprofessional.
