Beauberry House

Overall the food was good although we didn't think that the wagyu beef was that tasty or worth the money.

As the restaurant was quite empty the atmosphere wasn't that lively but it was a large space so would have taken quite a few diners to fill it.

A major complaint with the meal was the cocktails we chose to have at the end of the meal in the bar next to the restaurant. I had a cosmopolitan which was so watered down that it was almost clear. My boyfriend ordered a white russian and after the bar man had mixed it he was taken aside by another member of staff into another part of the bar, he returned with the white russian which also appeared to be very watered down. When we asked what they had done to the cocktails the response was rather nonplussed and we were then told they were not serving any more cocktails. Bizarre and completely unacceptable!

Fakhreldine

Ate here using the Taste London discount card which was valid for 2 for 1, unfortunately our party of four were only allowed to use this for two diners so we could only have a discount on one meal.

The standard of the food was good although we found it was very heavily oil based, however I may have noted this more because I am unfamilar with the cuisine.

Service was friendly and efficient.

I thought drinks were quite pricey at £4.50 for a small bottle of beer and in general so were the mains. Our total bill was £145, including a couple of beers each which seemed quite expensive when it included discount.

Albannach

The standard of the food was good although my starter and my friend's steak were both served pretty cold. We ate there on the Taste London deal so we got 50% off, without that it would have been really overpriced. Service was variable, such as, the response from the waitress regarding the cold steak was rather non plussed and requests for drinks had to made several times.

Overall we enjoyed a pleasant evening at Albannach but our group were not so impressed that we would dine there again.

Went there last Friday night with an offer from Taste London (50% off). The restaurant was fairly full and had a pleasant atmosphere. Food was nice with the steak being particularly tasty, service was attentive and prompt. With the offer the cost of the food was good although the drinks were pricey and were not included in the offer, £5-ish for a small bottle of beer.

Pepperton's

Top notch eatery with friendly service.

Shame it was not busier on a Saturday mid-afternoon, should be packed!

Lovely little place. I have been there twice and was impressed on both occasions with the food and wine and I have found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Be prepared to wait for a table but as there are quite a few nice pubs in the area I haven't found it a problem entertaining myself!

Lovely little place with a really cosy but lively atmosphere.

Had quite simple meals - sandwich and fries but it was very tasty. Would go there again.

Thai Pot

Very good food but the attitude of the staff was pretty poor.

Requests for additional items were ignored/forgotten and I had to ask several times until they eventually arrived. Staff didn't really seem to want to be there and it was reflected in their conduct. Shame as if there had been better service I would return.
