I had the 'Proper English' which gave two plump well cooked proper sausages, two golden yolked fried eggs, 3 rashers of excellent bacon, beans and a tomato half. Add to that a large price of artisan toasted bread and we have a winner. Ingredients were good quality and cooked well and at £9 I would suggest decent value for money for this quite expensive area.
Staff were OK - only giving a smile when they've taken the cash is a little bit poor. It seems to be a wholesale problem in SE1. We were there at 9.30am so may have missed a busy service however it seems in this part of London you might get better service at the golden arches. Sad but true.
Over all a lovely location, lovely decor, great potential but let down by the bar staff who seeem to think it is beneath them to provide a decent friendly service.
However, the barman was really rude. He was serving me and having an argument with a waitress about a missing order at the same time. I had to eventually say 'sorry, would you mind finishing serving me first' and he still carried on and didn't seem to care.
Personally however, I find the two sittings for dinner on busy days a bit of a disadvantage.
The only drawback is the amount you'll spend there - the price's are overly high, but it's hard to stick to only 2 courses...
