Food is great, location terrific and service is very friendly and unobtrusive. However, the menu has recently been downgraded (in my view) to a more cafe style offering and there are plenty of restaurants doing this more cheaply in Greenwich. While the service is very pleasant, it is not efficient and lunchtime meals can take 3-4 hours with huge gaps between courses. In my view either the kitchen or service is very understaffed and as a result we've stopped going as a family or with large groups of friends. Their childrens menu is poor. A smaller portion of their sublime fish pie would be a fabulous addition.
This has to be the worst run restaurant I have ever dealt with in London. They took a booking for my wife and I and various parents for boxing day through their online system. When we went on boxing day they were closed and we were left trying to find somewhere open at the last minute. It is appalling that they didn't call to say that they they couldn't fulfill the reservation, they had both my email address and phone number. When I contacted them to complain they were equally sloppy. All I got was some sophistry on a voicemail and when I returned the call my message wasn't passed on and my call wasn't returned as I had requested. Really pathetic. The Rivington is very well run and is consistently fantastic, I would recommend there or the Spread Eagle as an alternative.
They do really nice food here and the service was friendly but not too obtrusive. There was a really nice buzz in the room and could imagine it would be great on a friday or saturday night (we went on a wednesday).
I had a wonderful dinner here with my wife - the food is great and well thought out, the room has a nice atmosphere, the service was wonderful and the price wasn't too bad at all.
