Plenty of food and drink options. Several bars to order from, and lots of seating areas. Good location, close to a tube and overground station.
It was really great, I had a friend in my party in a wheelchair and they were really accommodating helping us get a convenient table spot
Great bar with very friendly staff. Food was excellent and the decor is wonderful! Could spend hours just checking out all the little details in this venue.
Love this place, cool decor, relaxed atmosphere, easy food and great music. The wait for the food is quite long, but the drinks deals keep you going!x
I understand it's a bar, on a Saturday night, but it was too loud to hear people, and the service was very odd. We had to pay for our meal at the same time we ordered, and gratuity was already included on the bill; I found this very odd, and the service definitely dropped off as soon as they had delivered the food. We found it hard to get the attention of the waiting staff, and then were told we could not order drinks from them, and had to go to the bar instead. After a short conversation, one of the waiters reluctantly agreed to take a drinks order, but only if it was for beer or cider. All in all, a bit of a disappointing experience, with okay food. It served our purpose for location, but it wasn't an enjoyable experience. As a side note, the toilets were disgusting, with wet floors and broken doors/locks.
The overall experience was ok, however our waitress forgot to bring water to our table twice during the whole evening (and we only ordered it: twice). Chips arrived almost 1 hour later after we ordered them as a sort of a starter. And it was after our pizza was already on our table. Would be good for waiting stuff to start writing things down properly when they take orders!
Cool, current, easy going staff. nothing was too much to ask. We find that many places to eat the staff and venue can be quite robotic and "to the book" - not here! thumbs up! will be back soon.
The door staff were rude- the door men and the ladies who take the money. Our friends had arrived minutes earlier and as we had a table booked for dinner, they got in for free, we were charged on the door to enter the venue which I thought was ridiculous considering we were going for a meal. We were then served by a lovely lady called Kelly who looked after us all very well.
I had a very pleasant visit to far rockaway, the staff was friendly and the food was lovely. I would definitely recommend. Although booking was a little bit of a mission, the atmosphere is really nice.
The food is good, the atmosphere is that of a fun place. When empty feels a little cold because of the big space. The Bar could improve a lot, especially on the offers-not offers, not very convenient.
