Not as friendly as other bars in this chain. There was no table service and one person at the bar. Another member of staff appeared to be busy with menus. I ordered a bottle of wine and two glasses and two glasses of tap water. I was left to do two journeys to get them to our table. Quite honestly... More

Great location for a Bar and unfortunately let down by the most inept Bar Staff I've ever encountered in any Bar anywhere in the UK. How is it ok? To treat your customers like Dirt and expect them to accept your Bad manners?

A bit different to the night time reviews- we went for breakfast. Excellent value at £7 for breakfast and a drink. The veggie Mexicans thing (not how it was written on the menu!) I had was served quickly and to a decent standard. Runny yolks and fiery chilli to wake you up. Really quiet but staff happy to see us... More

This is a very busy bar just beside Charing Cross Station - can be touristy. Is a bar with food rather than anything else - not fine food but food delivered to the kitchens part cooked and heated up there. Can get busy and there are two levels - so also noisy.

The food and drinks are perfectly adequate and we have visited here a few times now. Thank goodness the bar staff have stopped throwing bottles into their trolley bin downstairs. It was hugely disturbing & unneccesary making everyone flinch. At around 3pm in the afternoon the upstairs was plunged into almost darkness - no doubt compulsory mood lighting - another... More

How terrible is the service in this bar? Completely ignored for a good 15 minutes trying to order a difficult round of two beers and a soft drink . Obviously being next to Charing Cross station makes this bar busy but popular with people regularly I think not. Avoid at all costs and go to the proper pubs nearby

Not wanting to move on a cold night we ordered several times thinking that the next drinks couldn't possibly be as bad. Unfortunately each one outdid the previous. We were uncomfortable at how unpleasant the staff were and, as with the drinks, attempted to find a different one each time but to no avail. Each was as bad as the... More

Looks good from the outside but.. The first room looks like a railway coffee shop. The second looks like the mechanical room in an office building with booths. Upstairs looks better but there was no service there, just the gents. Service was intermittent. Food was OK. Really odd experience.

Neighbourhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
