Great food, great vibes, great prices. Mr. Buckley's is always a good shout. Unfortunately, downstairs was closed that evening, but if it's open, it's a great place to eat, drink and boogie.
Good quality and price (less than £20 each person, with wine and cocktails). The veggie dishes are the best!!! The place is nice. We will go again.
Perfect brunch; cocktails were brilliant and just what hungover people really need. The food was close to perfect in the form of salmon/avocado/poached egg on toast.
Great service, great food! Really enjoyed the evening here. Been a few times and always had a good time. Definitely recommend booking, cocktails are great
I have been to Mr Buckley's a couple of times now and had a great time each time. On our last visit we were a group of 6 - three of our friends were running almost half and hour late for the booking and I was so pleasantly surprised that the staff did not try to rush us to order, eat and leave the table in under 1.5 hours - a standard practice in so many London eateries these days - you almost await for it to happen. Instead we were able to enjoy a great Friday evening - with relaxed and very friendly service, amazing and reasonably priced food. The food is sustainably sourced from local businesses - which I care a great deal about and the menu changes every month which means that each time we go there is something different to try. Will be going back quite soon to try their brunch.
We felt that the restaurant promised a lot, but didn't actually deliver. When you read a menu like that, you get excited, but actually the food was underwhelming, considering the price too. To give some examples, the butternut squash in our starter was completely tasteless, the dauphinoise potatoes was like a dry roast potato, the medium steak was bleeding all over the plate and not tender and everything lacked seasoning. Being people who cook and get fed by their friends we feel it shouldn't be that hard to make a squash taste good. When we tried to give immediate, friendly feedback, we were informed by the waiter that the manager would come over, as that's the procedure. We waited ten minutes and were then informed by the waiter that 'the drinks would be taken off the bill', when in fact SOME of the drinks were taken off. It was a slightly confusing situation and we felt unhappy that the manager wouldn't come over and speak to us. What we ended up feeling was that our experience didn't matter. If you put something on the menu, you should be able to execute it and if you can't, as things do go wrong, don't make your customers feel bad for pointing out. The experience was slightly saved by how helpful and understanding one of the staff was at the end, but overall, the evening felt slightly sluggish and considering I'd been to Mr. Buckley's two times previously and had a lovely time, I was very disappointed indeed. I wish we'd just gone for a kebab.
Got there nice and early so was the 2nd customer in house. Starters: Smoked pigeon breast with artichokes & a fig reduction> good. Beef shin, chicory & roast butternut squash with preserved lemon dressing> I was served a generous amount of beef shin, butternut squash, pumpkin seeds and rocket.I questioned why I was not told that the dish had changed (luckily it was still tasty and I cleared the plate!) The waiter stated that the chef had changed it and forgot to mention to staff to change on menu(!?) Mains: Fillet of sea bass with lemon crushed potatoes & spinach purée> Nice clean main dish. Rump of lamb with shoulder of lamb boloungerie potatoes & jus > tasty. Desert: Flourless chocolate cake with rum chantilly> served with raspberry on top, nice but luckily shared as would have been too (chocolate fondant texture) heavy for us individually. Overall happy apart from the starters confusion, would go again.
As expected the service and quality of food was exemplary. We had the smoked pigeon starter followed by the pork chop and sea bass, with a side of winter greens. Each meal was expertly balanced in terms of flavours and seasoning and cooked to perfection. My only suggestion would be less potatoes! We both left some, but finished off everything else. The cocktails were fantastic, with my friend exclaiming it was the best Sidecar he'd ever drank (and he's quite a connoisseur of Sidecars!) Will definitely be going back and recommending to more friends. Oh, and Chloe, who served us, was delightful!
Had a fantastic birthday brunch at Mr Buckley's - excellent value for excellent food. The cocktails were a bit pricey, but they were delicious as well. The waitstaff was very patient with our large group - and were accommodating despite my own lateness to the party (thanks a lot, TfL!). I'd definitely recommend their brunch to friends.
I've eaten here several times and it never fails to impress: the imaginative menu, friendly attentive service and relaxed vibe are worth coming back for time and again. Above all the food really is superb. Do yourself a favour and pay Mr Buckley's a visit.
