Lucky 7

Westbourne Park

Classy American diner in Westbourne Grove with great food, killer milkshakes and a happy neighbourhood vibe – and it looks great, too.

Most London restaurants calling themselves diners aren’t really diners at all: diners have a long, diverse menu. That complaint is pretty much the only one we can make about this tiny outpost of Tom Conran’s empire. The American-retro decor is a smile from floor to ceiling, with outsized, wildly kitsch figurines stealing the show. The menu is 90% breakfast, burgers and outlandishly rich desserts, plus drinks including craft beers, some cocktails and many shakes. We had one of the few salads, cobb with grilled chicken, and it was excellent: a variety of ingredients, tender, tasty chicken, exceptionally generous in portion. A cheeseburger was equally successful: flavourful beef cooked as requested, and with appetising garnishes. Fries were good, coleslaw thinly shredded and creamy. The menu also includes a few other sandwiches, hot dogs and eggy breakfast options (huevos rancheros alongside the traditional choices). The drawback is size – seating capacity is just a couple of dozen – and the no-bookings policy. So you’ll often have to queue. But with quality this high, a queue is a small sacrifice. Tom Conran understands that when you work with food this simple, you need to get 100% out of every single detail. And he succeeds.

We started our day with brunch at Lucky 7 for a hen do yesterday and had a fab time. The food was so good, staff were amazing (with both helping me organise and service on the day) and the portion sizes were huge!! Definitely helped line our stomachs for a full on day. We finished off with some classic & strawberry margaritas - it was a perfect start to the day!

Wouldn't rate it for breakfast/brunch. Has a grubby feel and the service is poor. The plates look old. They don't wipe the tables properly and were slow to clear away dirty plates. The servings are relatively small for the price. They don't do a flat white coffee, only filter. The sharing tables isn't great either. Too cramped. Definitely wouldn't recommend it if you are nursing a hangover. Won't be back.

needs to buck its ideas up. eaten here loads. dont know why. burgers need a re think, milk shakes INSANELY OVER PRICED. other burger joints/diners all upping the game in london this place is going to be caught out. strange thing is its partner restaurant/pub the cow is great, awesome food, tom deli is good but again WOW the prices are a joke, i get its a posh area(these days) but the are quality at least. suggest the go to meatliqour and take notes

Food was good, justabove average. Its been a while since I came here, but I don;t have anythign memorabel to share with respect to food. What is memorable wthough was the bad service. I tried to pay with my debit card, which was rejected, not because i did not have enopugh mioney, btu because these things happen every now and then, you just need to retry with the same card, it is sometimes down to bad connection of the payment unit. THE WAITER REFUSED TO RETRY, saying that I had no money in my accoutn and demanded I use another card or cash. TEven though I was with a friend and not a date, thsi was highly embarrassing, and unacceptable, and somethiogn i never experienced. Did he realyl suggest I tried to get free burgers or something? I understand people can have bad days, but just stay moody and miserable, don;t insult your customers.
