All our food is locally sourced, using on the highest quality products and prepared fresh, in house at Van Winkle.

Chicken and waffles: batter burnt and waffles were sweet Belgian waffles from a bag.

Halloumi burger: two halloumi fries in a bun with salad and sweet chilli.

Neither of the above were particularly good nor were they worth the ~£10 price

Mac & cheese was great. Wings were good although much bigger than the usual small size so could have ordered a smaller portion.

Place could have done with some background music as it was pretty quiet and could hear everybody's conversations. Maybe this is due to lock down restrictions.

Would definitely recommend. Another good place to visit in the infamous East End of the city.

My only gripe was that when you book for 2 people you have to sit at a high table, beside each other staring out at other diners. It’s awkward and thankfully our lovely server sorted us out. Be great if it stated this is At time of booking.

Otherwise, food and service was outstanding as always!

Really tasty food, we got chicken wings, burgers and mac and cheese so tried various items on the menu and none disappointed.. Massive portions too which we loved. We were the only ones in during the week so the service was great, but I assume it would be this way during busy periods. Professional and responsible Setup to deal with social distancing and heightened hygiene post covid lockdown. All in all no negatives during our visit. Thank you guys
