Food was lovely. Staff were very nice but service could have been better. We had to ask to order after 30minutes. Drinks service was quite slow.

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.

Went for dinner with a friend, great relaxed atmosphere that wasn't too quiet that we felt we had to whisper but not too noisy either that we had to talk loudly to hear each other. Food was delicious and service was good.

Went here many times prior and had a lovely experience. Since they have completely revamped the menu, for the worse, removing many items that we’ve enjoyed. The waitresses were quite rude to us upon arrival and didn’t say a nice word. Will not be returning, unless the menu changes and the staff is a bit more respectful about customers.

Took my mother here for Mother’s Day. The restaurant was lovely. The staff was great and very attentive to us and even to my toddler nephew. They are obviously used to having children in their establishment.

The food was lovely. There was little to no time to wait between courses which was great! The portion sizes were just right.

Highly recommend this restaurant and plan on visiting again.

Really bad! Avoid this place like the plague! They don’t serve the a la Carte until after 3pm but also don’t tell you that anywhere. It was the reason we went... really disappointing and the staff were really unhelpful. They were friendliest as we left!

We had an enjoyable lunch at the Eastway. The waitresses were very attentive and friendly. The food was generally very good, especially the venison ragout. The atmosphere was lively, but with a reasonable level of noise, so we were able to discuss business comfortably.

Dropped into Eastway Brasserie for breakfast one Saturday morning. Although there wasn’t any need to book (there were only about 5 other people in the place) you never know.

Breakfast was excellent, helped no end by the complimentary pastries and bread that was available on addition to your order.

EASTWAY DON'T TAKE BOOKINGS VIA OPEN TABLE!!!
That said, the staff did their best to fit us in and did a great job. The full English breakfast was excellent.

Poor show on the part of Open Table confirming for a venue that has stopped using them!
