    We had a great time - 4 old school friends ! We had lunch and several glasses 😊 Service was good and food and wine lovely - 2 hours simply not enough time though, when the wine and conversation is flowing ! When we wanted to order desserts and another bottle, we were told we only had 20 minutes left on the table - so got the bill and wandered down to the Vault where no time limit is applied and saw several people do the same ! I know it’s difficult when some people sit at the tables and don’t spend any extra money - but we were keen to order more and was discouraged from doing so !

    Overall a lovely afternoon spent in the Lot bar. We asked to move tables as there was a big group near us and they managed to accommodate us even though it was really busy. The food was tasty, the service was good. We had to wait a while for a while but it was really busy so normal. Good value, definitely going back. Easy to get to right near the Elizabeth Line.

    I meet a business college for lunch he came from Hammersmith to Shenfield , our food was fine , not amazing but ok , service was slow and careless and not great , the time to wait was too long and then bought the wrong dishes , the noise level was something else , mainly ladies who seem to think shouting is the the way to talk, with regret the ladies who lunch need learn not to scream and become ladies and not shout at each other , your friends can not be that deaf and think of others when being mouthy . As someone who has used Lot for many years the recent visit would turn me off from returning ,I would say control the numbers for lunch and space the tables so we do not need to listen to the next table and ladies learn to be ladies not uncouth shouting people .

    booked with a client for lunch. we were shown to our tables quickly and order for drinks taken. It was some time before our food order was taken and then we were told that burgers were not on the menu today, which seems a bit strange. Anyway quickly reviewed menu and chose a chicken burger instead. Waited a fair time for the meal. the waitress was very sullen, almost to the point of rude. everything was plonked down. there was no "enjoy your meal". the burger was tough and the bun had a weird taste, i left most of mine. Should have complained but didn't because I was with a client, stupid me! We later ordered desserts and coffee. Coffee arrived immediately and was cold by the time dessert arrived. There was no cutlery on the table so we requested this and the waitress brought it out and "plonked" both spoons in front of my client and walked away without any smile or comment. No manners, very rude. I have eaten a few times here in the past but usually in the evening. Unfortunately, the food and the waitress has put me off returning anytime soon.

    Lot 75 is a great place to meet friends at any time of day. On this occasion on of the meals was unacceptable and was returned for an alternative option. All staff were very professional and polite and handled the situation perfectly. A complimentary drink was given to both diners which was really appreciated. Will definitely be going back.

    Been here before and it was great. Last night was beyond poor. Drinks first and the bar person sloped gin all down the glass and never gave us a full measure. The restaurant was fu oh you women who talked so loudly we could hardly hear what our friends were saying. We ordered a fairly expensive bottle of wine and the waitress poured it out like it was a glass of coke. When we said to her we would have like to taste it she said you don’t need to as it is a screw cap!! We waited quite a while for starters and they were all ok. The we waited ages for our mains with everyone screaming and shouting around us. Nightmare. When at last our mains came out they got my husbands order completely wrong . He ordered Lemon Sole and they bought a burger. So they said they would bring the correct meal out in 10 minutes. We had all finished our meal and his still was not out. Eventually they bought it out but at this point we had enough and my husband did not want to eat his meal and we sent it back. Our whole evening was totally ruined. They did knock the wine off but we did not ask for this. We just wanted a nice meal all together. Also all our mains were really poor!

    What a fabulous lunch. The food and service were excellent it was a fun and lively atmosphere. I ordered the fish which was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented and my mum whose birthday it was, she had the lamb shank she’s in her 80’a and ate the lot unheard of ! We had a throughly enjoyable time.

    Completely ignored after our mains were cleared. When finally got attention to request bill the server seemed to find whole thing amusing. Shame because food was nice. Also we were going to order desserts and more to drink. Service did not warrant the star ⭐ but could not complete feedback without.

    We had a lovely round table for 4 people in a corner so it was perfect for a catch up with friends. Food was great. Service was excellent. I had the Gambas pil pil to start and the seabass for main. We had a lovely bottle of white wine and a GnT to start.
