At least there is free wifi.

Dire hunger and the need for navigation brought me here a couple of weeks ago fresh from the airport and dropping my bags off at Victirua Street Station which is right across the street. I wish I would have known it was a chain, but once I received the menu I was so hungry and tired that I just stayed.

Boycott this place. The only place in the UK which has ever served me cold tea.

Then I had to ask for milk and after waiting for a while, decided I had to get it myself....more

We stopped in for dinner. It was great! Fish and chips were exactly as we expected!!! We returned a few nights later and had a few drinks. No Irish coffees but we're not in Ireland so had some vodka sodas. Met some pretty chill English people that were playing drinking games, got pretty faded, had a lot of fun

Convenient location, probably 3 minute walk from Victoria station directly next...more

This place gets a solid three stars....nothing more, nothing less.

Yes, there were hiccups. We ordered a chicken pie and a meat pie, and got two meat pies. When I tell you the mashed potatoes were ice cold, I mean that they literally were taken from the freezer and not heated thoroughly. Awful........

BUT alas, four tiny words saved the day: steak and ale pie. It was honestly good enough...more
