A fantastic place with one of the best service staff in London. We got lured in by the Wednesday Wing night where for £15 you get two sets of wings, chips and a pint of beer. On top of that, we still scraped in for the 2 for 1 cocktail happy hour as well. The girl who waited our table was absolutely phenomenal. She was friendly, patient and super-attentive. The food was delicious and the selection of beer impressive. If I had one advice, I would suggest not to order the Hell Fire Wings. As the friendly waitress advised us, it's not for everyone (and I would go as far to say it's not for anyone).

Fantastic place! One of my favourite London hangouts. Super friendly and accommodating staff, stylish and relaxed interiors, and the food is delicious - and almost all gluten free, but you'd never ever realise it. Really impressed every time I go! Love Leadbellys!


We've been lured into this bar restaurant by a sign offering a 2 for 1 deal on cocktails from 5pm to 7pm. The happy hour only applies to a limited menu and brings the prices down to less than a fiver, which is basically what they are worth. Drinks must be ordered at the bar and, despite this not being busy, it took us quite a while to be served, with the staff oblivious to us standing there. To benefit from the offer, both cocktails must be the same and we first had a Rachel's Garden. The woman who made them was a portrait of misery and didn't make a secret of her thrill when her shift was over. The cocktail itself tasted nice, although the presence of gin was undetectable. Next, we had Espresso Martinis. The young bartender (this time a guy) first started looking for the recipe, then another woman came to teach him how to make them. The reason why this fella was given a job behind the bar remains a mystery. I'd like to think that the poor service had to do with the festive season but, If I had paid full price for the drinks, I'd have been bitterly disappointed.

Light & lively bar at the front looking out at Canada Water Library & Canada Water, cosy and comfortable restaurant towards the back with some views of the lovely Albion Channel. Special mention to the variety of seating suitable for solos, couples, small and large groups. Extra points that acoustics in the restaurant allow for easy conversation even during popular times unlike many entirely open plan venues.The Menu. Brunch foods, Bites, Burgers, Sides, Mains, Sunday Roasts, Sharing Plates, Desserts, huge variety! Strong Southern USA influence shines through but the menu is inventive & delightful, not derivative. Delights for meat lovers & vegetarians are plentiful and almost all the menu is gluten-free or with a gluten-free option including Yorkshire Puds! Definitely safe for coeliacs.The Food. Wow. Best Cheesecake I have devoured & immediately wanted seconds of in my life? Yes. Moist crumbly cornbread ideal for mopping up the very tasty remnants of anything & everything? Yes. The best gluten-free Fish & Chips in Central London? Very possibly! The Service. Friendly and fast, on each visit the staff have really enhanced my experience. For coeliacs, very gluten aware and capable.

AVOID PRE HEATED MEAL - SUNDAY 8TH October 2017 - Stopped off for a Sunday Dinner having Eaten everywhere in the Local area i decided to Try Lead bellys for Sunday Roast.Upon arriving i ordered A ROAST BEEF DINNER WITH EXTRA MEAT AND WAS CHARGED £21.50 AND even gave a £1 Tip Prior to even Eating.I decided to eat outside in the Seating area after 10 mins the Meal was served.The Gravy came separate in A pot and Extra meat was on a Plate.Started to eat the meal and about 5 minutes into it realised it wasn't up to scratch intact it seems like this roast dinner had been cooked at 1-O clock in the after and served up 6 hours later dried out after being kept warm on some of hob or buffet heater or microwave maybe with hardly any heat what so ever ?. It came to the Table slightly warm. The meat was Dry and had no Moisture(chewy like Rope), The Roast Potatoes were dried out and very hard to get to the center after breaking the shriveled dried out burnt skins Inside was shrunken piece of potato which had a distinct bitter taste.The Yorkshire pudding was complete dried out and crispy very crunchy almost like a packet of crisps.The Vegetables seemed to be ok BUT COLD !.so being hungry i decided to try to attempt to eat this dinner with out complaint. but could not get past 10% of it barring in mind it had cost me £21 odd and pound tip.So with thati decided it was time to call it a day and not even carry on eating this Dinner so caught a member of staffs attention and told them my problems with the meal.Telling them that i have eating all around the area being local that this meal wasn't up to scratch. Asking me how they could resolve the Issue i said i would be ok with trying something else there another or even a partial refund.So the Member of staff went off with the Meal to the kitchen and said they would come back to me.Then the Manager ANNE MARIE came out to talk to me same again i told her my concerns with the meal and she said there would be no refund and would i like a bag to take away the dinner i asked her to try the dinner and ask her opinion on what it tastes like and in a sarcastic speech she said she would eat it and enjoy it ?. NOT REALLY GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND TO BE HONEST I COULD HAVE SPENT £3 ON FINDUS READY MEAL SUNDAY DINNER AND WOULD HAVE TASTED BETTER. DISAPPOINTED AND ROBBED BY LEADBELLYS . FOR A GREAT SUNDAY DINNER TRY OLD SALT QUAY OR SHIP AND WHALE REAL QUALITY GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE WITH A SMILE. Won't BE EATING OR STEPPING FOOT IN LEAD BELLYS AGAIN LET ME DOWN....SHAME
