    Extremely slow service, 45 minutes before we even got a drink and over an hour before our starters arrived. The place seemed to be in chaos and can only assume they may have been short staffed, but no apology was offered at any point and no one enquired after our food. We needed to leave after 2 hours and went to the bar to ask for our bill and requested feedback to the chef be provided that the prawn spaghetti we were served was completely inedible, extremely salty and had piles of parmesan chucked onto it which made it even worse. Having said that the burgers and steak ordered by others were very good. Just a shame we chose the pasta and a bad night to visit. They refunded the pasta dishes, but still unlikely to visit again.

    We were specifically looking for brunch, Our reservation was at 12:30 on a Saturday. Drove 45 minutes, went in sat down, just to be told they don’t serve brunch after 12. Even though on their OpenTable page states they serve brunch EVERY Saturday and Sunday- no mention of the change, and no apologies. We left. False advertising and extremely bad customer service.

    The place is lovely, great decor and ambience. Food was fabulous. Service from the staff was brilliant, however we did wait a long time for starters, 45 minutes. Although they apologised and were very attentive the wait was too long. I will say though that it was a Rugby game day and so it was extremely busy. This probably was the reason for the wait. Other than that it was lovely and I would not hesitate to go back.

    The service and ambience was very good, unfortunately the food was sub par. The main issue was that most of the dishes were undercooked, eg the potato rosti was not fully cooked through, and the waffles came out almost without any colouring and very bland in flavour.

    Ate dinner here for first time since rebrand (have had good breakfasts previous). Love that it’s dog friendly. The food was excellent - great kids menu too. In contrast to Beech House which is similar kind of offering (had steak and chicken Milanese at both) the food was much better as well as better value. Steak cooked perfectly and chicken milanese properly flat like is supposed to be! Waitress was fab - food came quickly etc but my only criticism would be it seems relatively understaffed. There’s 2 waiting staff for what are quite a lot of tables when full. Through no fault of theirs means if they get caught with large group can be bit of a wait if just want a menu or similar. However small confusion with our order was quickly sorted so we were very happy with meal and definitely will be back.

    Had a meal before a comedy night at the Twickenham Exchange as a birthday occasion. The bar and restaurant were busy due to the Harlequins also playing, which wasn’t an issue at all for speed and quality of food and service. Good menu, allergy advise was emailed as a pdf before the night. Enjoyed the night and will return.

    Visited on a Sunday. The location, decor, atmosphere and service were good. 2 adults and a child, we ordered starters and mains, but it took around 40mins to serve each course. Waitress was lovely, doing her best to keep us informed and apologising for the delay. We wouldn’t have minded too much as we are flexible and understanding that there could be a Sunday lunch rush but unfortunately the food wasn’t worth the wait or the price. The bun on my burger felt hard and stale, perhaps over-toasted? Husbands pie, at £14 felt very overpriced. It was pretty small and shallow, not much gravy in it, in a pan with a pastry lid that was a tad over-blackened. Not considered a “proper pie” by some. It didn’t come with anything so he had to order chips and peas separately, making the the total price of his main nearly £20, which didn’t feel good value for money. At least chips should be included. I do like the place and may be back to try the Sunday lunch and drinks, it may have just been an off day.

    We came for Sunday lunch, and although fairly busy, it wasn't a full house. The food was tasty, but 2 out of 6 dishes arrived cold when they should have been hot. They were replaced at a more reasonable temperature. Although they were aiming for a relaxed vibe, the service was overly slow. While we were given a discount for the returned dishes, they didn't help themselves by automatically adding service back in. Service should be discretionary! It was my first visit, and I was hoping for better as it's a good location, but I'm unlikely to hurry back and nor would be guests.

    Had to wait 20 minutes for a table that was pre-booked, limited menu, no GF starter available, white wine on tap was not cold, food served not how we asked, burger served stone cold. After we finally sat down we waited for an hour for the food to arrive. We were rushed off our table and asked to leave at 10:15 as they wanted to get the restaurant ready for the rugby crowd coming in the following day.
