We went there for a Team lunch, 10 of us. We arrive right on time . A table of 6 arrive after us and got served before us. Then another table that arrived after us Algo got served!

We had to ask several times as we were not given any feedback by the waitress. After the 3rd time we asked after 1.hour they started serving us, however people didn’t get their meal almost 15 mins after everyone else. Very poor!
We guessed they got something wrong in the order, but they never told us.
We got a discount, but it is not worth the pain for sandwiches and burgers. We just wanted a nice team meal and it was just a joke.

Booked a table for dinner. Called ahead to ask to be put in the restaurant area as I knew there would probably be Xmas parties on (visited on 15 Dec) I was told it was fine - so they were aware I was there for dinner.
Arrived to find my table in the bar, on the outskirts of a Xmas party. Then went to order food and was told the kitchen was closed as they had a party on.
I absolutely understand that Xmas parties are taking place at this time of year, but they shouldn't have accepted my booking for dinner if they knew they had another event on... especially as I called ahead of my booking to check.

There is only 2 waitress around but the service is ok as they work very effectively. The food did not look good when serve but when taste it, it is very delicious. Good to be there for a drink in that cellar look restaurant.

We arrived at the restaurant having booked it for dinner on opentable and were told on arrival that they weren't serving food!! We were told that some nachos or chips could be prepared, but that would be it. Disappointing. I was told that the restaurant has tried to call me, but I didn't have any messages on my phone - I should have been told before arriving. Has put me off ever visting a Jamie's again as by the time we arrived it was too late to book anything else. It was a shame as was looking forward to a nice dinner with my friend.

Not a lot good to say really. The food was OK, usual central London pub grub, service was terrible. This was a weekday lunchtime meal so time is always a factor. Waited over 10 minutes to order food and drinks, did not eat until 35 minutes after we arrived (we ordered sausages and mash, and the Thai curry). After 15 minutes of waiting after asking for the bill it did not arrive so paid on the way out via the bar. Not a single apology. The place was not busy so could not understand reason for the poor service? For their sake I hope it was an off day.

Food was good. Slightly over priced and more variations on sandwich menu are needed.

However the quality and service is very good.

I took my colleague here for a birthday meal - we both enjoyed our chicken and beef burger with fries. Fairly reasonable, but really convenient for lunch as its across the road from the office.

We enjoyed it.

Went here on a Friday evening, not a great experience, place was half empty and the 2 members of staff didnt really wait on us.. The chicken on the platter we ordered was replaced with sausuage without even asking us if this was ok, we had to clear our own plates onto the next table ourselves and go back to the bar to order another bottle of wine. As the place was empty we thought the service would be on the ball... it was not. Would not go back.

The restaurant was closed even though we had a confirmed booking! Not happy at all. Went all the way there to find it was closed!

More of a pub with bar food than anything else but this might be because we went in December, Christmas parties were underway and it was really busy. as a result we weren't able to book (even though TT accepted our booking) and got the last table. We ordered a sharing platter as main courses aren't on the menu, but 'available on request', so this really is more a drinking place with food rather than a restaurant venue.

Arrived on Valentine's evening to find that I had not checked out the menu prior to booking which consists mainly of sandwiches. But it did have a fish pie. I am allergic to fish.
Left and went elsewhere.
Pity coz it is nice surroundings.
