    We have come to Mitre a few times and I have to say I was quite disappointed by the Coppernose. It was clearly the end of the breakfast service, they didn’t offer brunch despite that is what we had booked and it clearly says brunch is on 10:30 -12. We couldn’t sit outside because the terrace didn’t open until 12. The food was fairly average and I asked for sourdough with my order and had a stale piece of bread with avocado stains on it, I did not have avocado or anything green on my plate. I was with friends and didn’t want to ruin the moment so did not mention this to the staff. The seats were quite dirty and it was just not the experience I had hoped for.

    We had to wait ages at reception to be seated and then once we got to our table we waited for twenty minutes and still no one had offered us a drink or food and the table had no cutlery. Eventually we managed to find someone, who told us it was now table service. There were no other people seated where we were, the upstairs restaurant was empty. We therefore asked to be moved downstairs and had a better experience, although it still was not up to its normal standard. A very chaotic evening!

    A really disappointing experience. On arrival booking not found, then girl on desk realised we were in Coppernose and said just go through. No welcome at the Coppernose bar - asked where our table was and bar man waved in the direction of an available table, no table service, waited 10 minutes for a drink (whilst waiting I went and asked if there were tables downstairs and was told they were fully booked). A table next to us remained uncleared of plates (fishy) for the whole time we were there. A very different and underwhelming experience to previous bookings downstairs. My friends and I had one drink and went next door to the Mute Swan where the staff were friendly and the atmosphere much more inviting.

    Was really looking forward to a lovely few hours enjoying some cocktails and a few bites before a show at Hampton Court but that didn’t happen. The service was appalling - having been seated and drinks ordered the service almost stopped. Food arrived but the order was wrong and we had to ask about 15 minutes later where the replacement item was as well as the water we had ordered at the same time as the drinks. Don’t order the crisps and popcorn from the small plates menu as you simply get a bag of crisps and a bag of popcorn delivered to your table! No crockery was provided so we had to track that down ourselves as we couldn’t make eye contact with anyone and then the staff seemed to vanish. The crockery we did find - most of it was grubby. Further drinks were ordered from the bar as no one came near the table and it seemed like an inconvenience or surprise that drinks were being ordered. We also ended up using a separate table to put the empty plates and glasses on as it was a small table and they simply tried to squeeze more glasses on it. When we complained to their credit they took some things off the bill but that wasn’t the point - the response was they were short staffed and almost a shrug of the shoulders as of to say not my problem. This was such a shame as the Mitre was recommended to me and I found the whole experience disappointing and the terrible service impacted on what were some lovely drinks and average food in a beautiful, although somewhat grubby, setting.

    Why have an online booking system for times when the kitchen isn’t open! Not impressed to turn up and find out no food available. Then every member of staff ignores you as you ask to speak to someone about it.

    We booked afternoon tea for Father’s Day as we have come to the mitre several times before. Surprisingly, The service was appalling for various reasons: - We booked a gluten free and non gluten free afternoon tea but were told that this wasn’t possible. But the waitress checked and later said it was - ok. But then we were told to book lunch for our child rather than tea. The two afternoon teas came on time and looked good. Our daughters lunch came almost an hour later! We couldn’t eat before our daughter so she ended up eating our afternoon tea for two - which was stale by that time anyway. When we were waiting for her lunch, I asked the Waitress and another waiter for updates - she simply said: it is coming- everyone is annoyed today because Their food is delayed but I can’t do anything about it. - I then asked for an update 45 mins later! And asked if she can get an update on timing from the kitchen - she said she can’t. There wasn’t even a real apology - the food came later and it was fine. - the bill came and we were charged the optional service charge. For the first time in my life I said I don’t want to pay this because the food was late and our food was stale - and I was hungry given I needed to share my food with my daughter. - the waiter simply said: ok I’ll print a new bill. No apology or anything - or eg free drinks or anything else to say sorry. Appalling. I never complain. I wouldn’t go here again if with the same staff A lot of other people were asking to see the manager on this day too.

    Love coming here but always feel like the service could be better. We were left standing at the bar, then told to just go and find a table then just totally ignored until I got up to go and ask a member of staff if I should be going to the bar to order or if it is table service ( which I assume it was meant to be). She then took our order and it was ok. But anything we wanted after this we still had to keep getting up to go and ask for.

    Initial service was good although we were the only customers then. Once it got busy the bar was initially understaffed. Food service was diabolical; no manners, presented at the table, and the quality of food food the price was terrible. Never had a slimy Caesar salad before. No condiments were offered and when asked at the bar they forgot. The barman who was on at the start was good but he had no other customers. You could tell they were rushed once it got busy….. and £12 for the smallest glass of average was astoundingly expensive … 2 pints of Morretti cost the same!

    I have to say I was so disappointed with the whole experience here. I was told this place was really good but I left so dissatisfied & disappointed. The food was bland & not cooked very well & the service was really poor. They weren’t even busy which makes it even more frustrating. The chicken with spinach & egg on top is possibly one of the worst meals I’ve had this year and this cost £22.00 each. As stated before, it was so bland. Menu didn’t have much choice. I can safely say I won’t be going back.

    Service non existent. Staff need immediate retraining. Not shown to a table, not given menus, not offered drink. Food was good was server was mute and odd. No cutlery. No napkins. Asked for condiments and was ignored. Diners joking to each other about how pathetic the staff were. Made Fawlty Towers look good. Needs immediate attention from management.

    We booked bottomless brunch for a Friday afternoon, availability was very limited but it didn’t seem very busy at all when we arrived. Food was lovely, both had fish and chips which was a good size lunch, tartare sauce was very nice. After we went downstairs to sit by the river outside and had a cocktail, very lovely location and good experience overall.

    Absolutely awful! The Coppernose restaurant which I booked was closed so we were moved downstairs to the very expensive, overpriced restaurant. I wouldn’t have minded paying the extra money if the food was worth it but it definitely wasn’t. I received an email the day before making sure we were attending the Coppernose restaurant, no mention of it being closed. I will never go back and will tell as many people as possible not to waste your money.

    Had been wanting to bring my parents here for a while as a special treat. I booked in for breakfast but it was so bad we didn’t even stay! It was like they were closed?! Dirty tables everywhere, bins being emptied in the middle of reception. Totally ignored by two members of staff on laptops. When someone finally appeared they just stared at us until I said we had a booking - he looked suprised and then said - oh ok go sit down! There was no clean tables to sit at - we tidied one ourselves, he then brought over two tea stained paper menus. Out of embarrassment we ordered coffees but then left and we weren’t even questioned as to why! It was so upsetting as this was meant to be a treat for my parents who were visiting! I most definitely won’t be returning.

    Arrived to find the bar had closed earlier in the day due to lack of staff. No one had contacted us to let us know in advance. We had been moved to their restaurant outside where all the heaters had run out of gas and tables from earlier remained uncleared throughout our meal. They honoured the menu from Coppernose after giving us their full service menus (others were also been treated similarly) but service was poor at best. Food was good but that was the only positive. Stayed just an hour and a half instead of for the evening. Would not recommend. Maybe it was an off day but it was a shambles.

    Service was pretty standard, another table complained and were being really rude about our waitress. Whilst the overall service was slow and lacking it didn’t deserve the nasty reaction from the other table. We asked if we could stay for drinks after our meal and was told ‘we’ve decided to close up’ ‘it’s been an eventful evening’ which was frustrating for me and my wife. We have one of the managers some nice feedback about our waitress (same one that the other table was being rude about, the manager was thankful but the waitress didn’t even acknowledge it.

    This place has really gone downhill. Bad experience to mark my daughter's birthday. Rude FOH staff and long waits. No atmosphere as everyone bar us was being moved downstairs, we were the only people left and then had to wait for birthday dessert. Reading reviews, it seems others have had bad experiences here too. Shame - it used to be good.

    Lovely setting by the River Thames. We had a table on the lower deck to start with which was really chilled, and then we moved inside (just got a bit chilly) and were given another great table by the bar. The ambience was great and the music matched it - so nice to see the place how it is now compared to how it used to be (a dive!). All the staff were very welcoming and polite so we'll definitely go back.

    This has been the best afternoon tea I have tasted. It was my first visit and I plan on returning. My only gripe - the floor wasn't clean around our table before we sat down, not that it mattered, my kids made it worse. It is a beautiful hotel and after this visit I plan on returning for afternoon tea and also want to visit the restaurant.

    Arrived to a booked brunch, however they were sold out of the option we wanted, no waffles all morning either. Incorrect meal then served and not acknowledged in the first instance. Very slow service even though only 4 tables occupied in the restaurant. We were then not allowed to walk into the outside terrace area. Sadly, not impressed with this visit despite enjoying dinner and the atmosphere on previous occasions.

    One of the worst ever - took our 90 year old Granny there for 6.30pm dinner, 2 hours later we’d had simple starters and no main course- we left. We’re informed there were 4 managers on duty - I think we complained to 2 or 3 of through the evening: it made no difference we were given platitudes but no food. A truly dreadful experience.

    We arrived early for our booking and asked to go to the bar for drinks. Service was incredibly slow and we did not get our first drinks until 45 minutes in. Once our dinner table was ready we made our way up to Coppernose. Again, service was slow and it felt like we were being ignored. We were brought the incorrect menus and when we asked a question regarding the food, the waiter went off and never returned. In the end we were so disappointed with the service that we paid for the drinks and left and went to another restaurant
