Elephant and Castle pub, Amersham - very poor service

Anyone else had appalling service there: where you have to wait for an hour for your meal on a Bank Holiday lunchtime without any warning, little apology and extraordinary accusations of being aggressive when you ask about a discount. Shame - because it's lovely place.

I can semi concur with you. I went to this place back in Feb with the snow. I think they had recently opened. They had really no clue about who was doing what, when and how. No clue as to who was responsible for taking the order, was it supposed to be at the bar ? Was it supposed to be watiress service. !

No knives and forks ! Then everyman and their dog asking if all was ok. Someone more bothered about the fire than anything else ! The waitress moaned at the manager saying people need to be trained. After all this the food itself was superb. I feel sorry for the chef having to provide the foods to a chaotic system where no one at the front end has a clue.

And yet it appears neither of you has so far thought to submit a review of the place.

If one-post wonder Zola had done so last February Fulhamish would have been able to make an informed judgement before visiting the place if he'd so wished.........

Indeed ... yet still no review on the Elephant and Castle.

Perhaps it would be better posting a review, in the Review section, rather than dragging up a thread that was 3½ months old before you resurrected it.

Idiot? As you wish ... You've clearly missed the advice in Broadland's post. Posting reviews in the review section helps other users make an informed choice. Posting comments on a thread in a forum doesn't always have the same impact. However, carry on throwing abuse around if that's how you respond to advice.

By all means close the thread but, for reference, the Venue is there now and you could still post a review of your experience - you won't be the first, there are several reviews on this establishment including one from the OP iirc.

Add your comments the review section and they won't get lost (it is ranked 32/34 in Amersham)
