Popped in for a coffee today, been before, thought styled over service but gave benefit of experience. Today a baby party inside the door full of yummy mummies and daddies, chaotic uncleared tables, and staff seemed to have no interest in what was happening. Tooting needs a decent place to chill, you won't find it here despite good intentions.

Having previously been to Graveney and Meadow for a drink with a friend a few months ago I didn't have to be asked twice to go back. I loved the decor and the funky vibe, not to mention the sweet smell of bakery treats at the back and huge beer garden. However, I went back there last Saturday to meet a friend for lunch, and it's safe to say I will happily never go back. The manager there is rude and shockingly ignorant. I ordered food and a drink with a very polite staff member in there, and seeing as I have a severe allergy to dairy I asked if I could get the mushroom burger without cheese or aoili, asking instead if they had any relish, chutney or tomato sauce, at which point the manager snapped at me with "the burgers come as they are OK. They are burgers. We don't have relish. We don't have chutney. OK?". His ignorance was overwhelming, his customer service skills are disgraceful and unless he is the sole owner of this bar I would strongly advise some people skill training if he wants to keep food custom. Side note, I'd advise nobody to eat here as they charge central London prices (£7.50) for a tiny burger (my friend had the cheese burger) and minuscule salad. One of the worst experiences I've ever had in a pub, and I've managed a pub for years. Go further down the road to The Antelope where the staff are amazing, the decor is just as lovely and the service and food are worth every penny.

I personally don't think the concept at G&M works at the moment. They are trying to do way too much and it just doesn't work, in fact it feels a complete mess. A friend actually recommended G&M to me, so when my parents came to visit I thought it was a perfect excuse to try it out and treat them to brunch, London style, unfortunately it was a complete disaster! When we arrived we found they no longer did breakfasts on their brunch menu and hadn't been for couple of weeks, despite what it said on their menu. So that was the first disappointment. We quickly got over that and four if us ordered brunch and one ordered a burger. Whilst we waited our coffees came, both americanos were cold, and I found the coffee to be really bitter. But I must admit I am no coffee buff. The brunches then arrived, but after waiting 10 mins we had no burger. After asking the 'way to cool to even do her job' waitress where the burger was she mumbled it was coming. She managed to avoid us whilst the rest of us tucked into brunches, there was no apology or update to tell us where the burger was. It eventually arrived when everyone else at the table had finished. My dad then refused the burger as he was looking forward to eating it with the rest of the family. To which she replied 'it's not my fault'!! The whole time this happened we didn't see the manager once! But after kicking up a fuss, the manager apologised and told us he was short of staff and that the brunches came from the kitchen and the burgers from the BBQ, etc, etc. we did get the whole thing free of charge, which was a nice surprise, but we still left thinking what a mess. And wondering what happened to the other waitress who spent the whole time walking around in circles with the same two cups of coffee, she's probably still looking for the table! A very odd place, wouldn't go back and wouldn't recommend it.

Lovely place. God bless Antic - single handedly dragging Tooting up! I hadn't even realised they owned this place. The cakes are really good but its a bit dark in there and the acoustics aren't great due to the lack of soft furnishings. Staff are lovely.
