Over half of the other tables gave up waiting for their food whilst we were there. We waited over an hour for our lunch (4 burgers), when the food eventually turned up it was wrong (salad instead of a burger in one case). Complete lack of apologies or updates from waiting staff. Pretty shocking.
Food took a long while to appear so we were miffed to start with. However, the real let down was the size of the portions. Don’t order a starter, the BBQ burnt ends were no bigger than a table spoonful and you get 4 thin sticks of prawn in the firecracker dish. With the bourbon short rib you get coleslaw but it’s a teaspoon of it in a metal tin sized for a dollop of ketchup. Definitely got Christmas Scrooged! Will be telling friends not to go.
Does what it says on the description. Good, tasty, lively food.
£18 bottles of Prosecco during happy hour is really something
Service was great but ribs were quite dry. A mouse ran about the restaurant while we ate.
Once you’ve managed to find this place, it seems like a great find. Looks good, concept is simple and effective and there’s no real reason this shouldn’t work.
Firstly, I don’t know if the heating was broken but this was horribly uncomfortable and literally everyone sat with their coats on. Nothing was mentioned by staff, no explanations or apologies. One or the other would have been good. It was snowing that day; the door doesn’t close properly and again, when someone left and the door was left sort of wedged open, the staff seemed content to leave it. No sign on the door, no effort to close the door. Just contentment at the stays quo. The service was slow and questionable. It’s a fairly small menu, our waiter triple checked everything and came back to check again twice. The food was nice but all in all it was a weak experience.
Visited with two fiends and had the Buttermilk Chicken burger which tasted fantastic. I also had sweet potato fries and a lemonade which totalled to £19.00 with service included. Will definitely visit again when in the area.
Really enjoyed it , staff were good and food great. Simply enjoyable
Good service experience and food was enjoyed by all.
Good for some cheap dirty burgers and a few beers with friends. I'd go back for a casual hang out. Not very busy for a Thursday late lunch. Staff were friendly enough.
I came here with a friend, and was quite surprised at cool and quirky the place was.
It was packed too, with a real good buzz about the place.
The wings & burgers were really good and tasty without being overly pricey either.
If you're around the Farringdon area, would definitely recommend checking this place out.
I organised a catch up with friends here based on reviews but didn't realise that this venue was really a very noisy pub which served food. Thank goodness I reserved table!
There was a nandos style service but without the courtesy, self service all the way but without anyone actually giving any instructions.
We ordered an appetiser and main meals and these all came together- cold. When I asked the server he said I should have asked for them to be staggered. Well, I was staggered by that reply and complained to the manager. this meant waiting around at the bar with my food getting even more cold as the bar was rammed and the manager serving.
He apologised, reiterated that that was their style, exchanged some of our cold food and gave us a free bottle of prosecco. I am not sure my comment that they should inform customers that an 'appetiser' really only means a side dish will be taken on board.
All in all, not a good experience really.
The food was nice and spicy but this was marred by the poor service.
Probably a nice place for an after work drink with friends you want to shout at but otherwise - nah!
Went here on a Friday night and it was a bar full of city workers and not what I was expecting from the info I'd seen online. The staff were very good and the food was nice enough, but there are much better places nearby to choose over this
Food is delicious although ever so slightly too expensive. Don't expect any service whatsoever and you'll have a great meal.
I booked Lazy Bones thinking it was a casual restaurant for dinner with friends. It *is* a casual restaurant, but very much a bar vibe (I expected a MeatLiqour type of venue). Our table was high bar stools rather than properly seated, but these tables are available. It suited our evening, it just wasn't what I'd expected.
The cocktails and wine were reasonable. We all chose a variety of sliders and cheese chips, which were all very good. The sliders were super small though, we should have ordered more so a little guidance would have been nice.
Overall - the music was funky, food was comforting and the service good. Great night
Service at this restaurant has been slow and poorly organised all three times we've been, but we came back because the food itself is cracking. Well seasoned and full of flavour.
If you're not in a hurry and don't mind having to keep an eye on what's going on with the procession of food coming out so you can spot errors, then it's good eats.
