Italian Kitchen

Homley packed pizza restuarant. Very surley waitress- she really made us feel as if she was doing us a favour. We went on a deal with another website which she made us feel like cheapskates for booking-very annoying when they are the ones promoting it!!

Food was decent if rather heavy, but the wine was lovely- house wine was valpolicella whch was a nice touch and made us feel it was more authentically Italian. Decent, cheap Italian place if with patronising staff.

This restaurnat looks like nothing from the outside, but inside it's vast.

Really excellent value bento boxes and noodle dishes before 8pm- only £6. Where else in zone 1 will you find such a great deal?

Not much atmosphere- not a place you want to linger for hours, but there are plenty of other bars in the area for drinking. Decent, cheap food and friendly service. Great.

New Fujiyama

The food here is great, decent portions and very fresh. A bit canteen style, but that's what seems to be a part of the Asian dining experience nowadays... Not a place you'd want to hang around for hours in over a few beers, but excellent value.

The Garrison Public House

i've been here three times and i've always had bad service. i can't get over how rude the 'eye patch' waiter is- last time i went he actually didn't even speak to me when i approached the bar to tell them we had a reservation- he just sullenly grabbed 2 menus and took us to a crap table when the restaurant was half empty. he overheard my boyfriend and i discussing the specials and instead of coming over to tell us that one of them was off, he instead very pointedly crossed it out. the manager overheard me talking about how rude he was and came and took our order instead as i think it's well known he annoys customers. another time with another waitress she forgot to order my salad, and the first time i went we waited over an hour for my main course.

it's a shame as the food is very good, and the interior is lovely. i kept going back as it's the place where i went on my first date with my boyfriend and has lovely memories, but after the treatment we recieved last time, i don't think i'll be going again!
