Elephant & Castle Beacon is the next exciting new chapter in the Elephant & Castle story. The fourth Elephant & Castle has opened in the bustling Beacon South Quarter, bringing an exciting new addition to the Sandyford area. The menu will feature the same great dishes that make Elephant & Castle a firm favourite. From the fluffy omelettes, caesar salads and juicy burgers, and, of course, those crispy, spicy wings. We’re focusing on friendly, laid-back service; tasty as ever food and a relaxed atmosphere - everything Elephant & Castle lovers have come to expect from a visit to our place.

Disappointed this time food came out cold wings had to go back
Fries and burger just warm
We were told a point of order that the burger would take 25 minutes it came in5 so obviously was precooked and warmed up like the wings. A few members of staff were not as attentive as usual.
I hope this was just a blip as we have never been disappointed here before

Hi Keith, Thank you for your review, we welcome feedback both good and bad and I am happy to hear you have enjoyed your previous visits with us. I can assure you all our food is cooked to order, it can on occasion take less time than anticipated if it is during a busy service and it is possible for us to send one table before another as we have the dishes ready. We also have takeaway orders running in the back ground so we will always have some food on the go but not reheated. 1/2

The chef hadn’t shown up for work, and we couldn’t order food until the replacement showed up, 20 minutes after we arrived. Not ideal when on a 1 hour lunch break. All very rushed, and the food order was left short when it did arrive. We had to ask for the missing stuff, which the waitress told us she’d forgotten to ask the new chef to make.

Staff were friendly, but seemed to be disorganised and rushed off their feet, despite there only being 3 other tables occupied at the time?

I won’t be rushing back.

Hi Thanks for taking the time to leave us some feedback on your recent visit. I'm sorry to say we did have a bad day at the office as you mentioned in your private note. Unfortunately this was beyond our control as we can't predict when staff will be sick and I do apologise that it affected your visit. I hope you will give us another chance to redeem ourselves sometime again in the near future as this is not our usual standard of service. Fiona

It was our first time there, the premises is nice and airy, clean and a nice atmosphere. The service was excellent in particular by the waitress called Amber, she was very pleasant and professional. The only area we would be critical of is the pricing, it is too expensive. Other than that a good experience.

We felt very safe in terms of socially distancing measures with the tables being very spread out and screens etc having been put in place. Wonderful experience and will be back again after lockdown!

Service and food was excellent, however I think the advice to restaurants is to keep the music level lower to avoid diners having to raise their voices (didn’t bother us as we were a family). Also at one stage three staff members stood at the bar area and removed their masks to have a conversation.

Elephant & Castle - Beacon
Responded on 23 December 2020

Hi JeanetteU Thank you for your feedback and I'm happy to hear the food and service was good. In relation to the masks, our staff have been working in pods together since last March and we wear the masks at work to protect ourselves and customers from each other. As our customers remove the masks at their table, our staff also need to be able to have a break from wearing them. We have taken extreme measures ensuring everyone's safety and I do hope you can understand this from our side. Fiona
