    A very poor attempt at brunch. All four plates lacked seasoning making the food incredibly bland. Baked beans from a tin. Measly portion of bacon. Undercooked crunchy hash brown. Won't be returning 😡

    Loud pop music, drunk people and cheap drinks..

    For lunch and early supper, there is a super special menu of 2 courses for £15, included the trademark burger and also a vegetarian option. Importantly, the 2 course menu includes the Pavlova!

    Great for steak head to the top floor great views from the balcony
  • Sarosij D.
    It took them 25 mins to serve the burger which was underwhelming. I guess you should come here if you are not very hungry and just want to spend time waiting for your food to arrive.

    A great place for breakfast. Do eat the bacon butties and porridge. Do avoid the brisket hash. It's just some mash with pecks of beef and an egg.

    There are much better options for meat lovers around London, but they have a big space and a pretty good atmosphere so it's good for groups.

    Fantastic steak sandwiches; with the proximity to the infamous market you can't go wrong with the meat here. Busy & buzzing on weeknights, very chilled on weekends.

    Good quality food from an ever changing menu. The steaks are consistently good. Clientele is a bit suity, but there's enough space in the warehouse conversion to avoid them

    Nicely done place with a great terrace area but the food is nothing to rave about sadly. Beware that their creamed spinach is not creamed but 'bread-crumbed'.

    Took the mixed steak platter with the different cuts. The ribeye had more fat than meat... not nice, to put it nice. At least the wine and company were excellent! Pruno 2010, Ribera Del Duero.

    A little walk to the Barbican Centre from here, but well worth it. Try the burgers: the meat is all from the market opposite. Level 2 Dining Room is a good choice, Level 3 for something a bit special!
