    The burgers are pretty average, but the entire atmosphere is good. I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for tasty food.
  • Cyndie D.
    A bit surprised by the comments, maybe I was lucky or they improved well. My food was good, and the service friendly. Nice decor inside. Really warm in it. Best for weekday over lunch.

    Very loud, risotto was undercooked and salty, roast turkey was overcooked.

    Avoid. Full of desperados trying to turn it into an "it" place. The food is dreadful and the service is poor.

    Came here for Sunday brunch. Very cool ambience. Menu was good and varied, food tasty but very small portions and very pricy for what you got. Decent coffee.

    I came here last century. My order was taken 50 years ago and I am still waiting at the table for the food.

  • Mela M.
    I went over 8 months ago. The food was a disaster. My pasta with ragù sauce was overcooked and gluey. The steak +"lobster" (more like a burnt prawn) was disgusting - we sent it back and got a refund

    Read so many bad reviews about the service but great food. Just go there and ask about Adam. We(2 couples) just had there and have a wonderful night with very nice food. I would recommend for everybod

    Average food and terrible service. Took forever to place an order. Half of which arrived. Food was like warm and chewy. Try The Table over the road instead.

    Not great food unfortunately. Nice place for a drink though.

    Walked out after nobody could be bothered serving us in the restaurant. Don't bother.

    Nice buzzing atmosphere, even during lunch times. £15 steak, lobster, fries and prosecco a great deal.

    Do not take the burger it is really tasteless
    Richard Borsboom · April 9, 2014
  • Sangeet L.
    Rubbish. 20 mins to get served. Just walked out. Don't bother.

    Don't come too thirsty- your wait for a drink, even on a quiet Sunday afternoon, will be a while

    Been here several times over the past few years and sadly the quality of the food has gone steadily downhill.

    My son said "best burger I've ever tasted"

    Wine is good, staff are nice, but too many corporate tossers in the clientele

    Mango mojito didn't taste much of mango.

    Very noisy, but as (here) I have diner alone I don't really mind. I'm a regular customer and never been desapointed by the food ; I wouldn't say the same for the service...

    High hopes dashed. The service here is pretty slow and poor.

    Food was lovely but the service is pretty shocking - not a place to go if you're in any kind of a hurry
    Jana · August 31, 2012
  • Chris H.
    You'll wait 20mins to get served even if there's noone at the bar. Nice enough place though
    Chris Hastings-Spital · June 7, 2012
  • Jon R.
    Nice layout but the service particularly at lunchtime is appalling. Need more staff behind the bar.

    V cool restaurant & bar; try the self heal cocktail as its basically good for you!

    Avoid on a Friday evening/night. The DJ thinks he's in a nightclub in Ibiza, and consequently it's ear-splittingly loud, making conversation utterly impossible and killing any decent atmosphere.

    The Stilton Fondue is incredible.
    Marcelo Barretto · November 19, 2011
  • Anna G.
    Oh dear. Refinery really let me down tonight. Bad food. Bad service. Part-refund helped but still tainted the evening.
    Anna Gawan · October 17, 2011
  • Simon L.
    Awful service!
    Simon Loxham · September 29, 2011
  • Martin G.
    Four staff behind the bar, only two "allowed to serve customers". WTF?

    Done drinking daiquiri's and necking beers? The Table Cafe's right across the road open till 10.30pm for truly inspiring cooking.

    order at the bar when busy, you'll be waiting a long time for a waitress ...

  • Jo G.
    Very noisy! You will go home with a sore throat if with friends because you havde been shouting all night trying to hear one another ;(

    Full of pricks in suits. Avoid.

    Burgers here are lush, and the Cocktails are excellent. Nice to sit outside if its warm.

    One of my favourite places for after work drinks.

  • Federico B.
    Atmosfera fantastica, cibi buoni (ci sono alcuni piatti particolari e poi i soliti classici, dal fish and chips, alle insalatone, agli hamburger) e prezzi in linea con i pub del posto.Consigliatissimo
