Beach Blanket Babylon (Notting Hill)

A Place for Drinks - Great,

A Place for dinner - Dont bother

Arranged & reserved a table for drinks in the bar @ 7.30pm & a table for dinner at 9.30, for my other halfs surprise 30th Birthday.

Got there 1 small table & 4 chairs for 8 people !

great Cocktails - but ignore the price list - they have. Not only are the cocktails circa £9.50 each (& pretty much the only drink on offer), but then they surprise you with a 12.5% service charge - on a drink that did not come with any kind of service or table service !!!!! OK the cocktails were good - but should be.

Our party came from various locations outside London - so needed to catch 11.30 trains back (being the last trains). 45 minutes after we should have been seated - we were still in the bar awaiting our table.

We gave up in the end & walked out - going to a small brazilian restaurant around the corner.

Thanks BBB, for ruining our birthday party.
