    Nice place, friendly staff and good range of beers. Frustratingly their booking system was apparently down so there our table booking for 7 wasn’t there which caused headaches. A couple of taps were out and a number of beers we ordered were then told they didn’t have them.

    If the food was good, this place would be rated higher. The burgers were so over cooked they were hard to swallow. The pretzels were dense, hard, doughy and tasteless. The guacamole was some sort of creamy, vaguely avocado flavored dip. The broccolini jalapeño Mac and cheese was tasteless. The atmosphere was fun and the service pretty good. I hope the food improves!

    Not sure if COVID restrictions had an impact on this venue but the food was very slow to come out and when it did, it was well below expectations, with the exception of the wings. If the 2hours table reservation time was adhered to, we would have left without receiving all our food. The ribs were exceptionally dry and tasted as if they had been cooked, frozen and reheated a number of times.

    Friendly and hospital staff that accommodated my group of 10. With a large group, they did not enforce a minimum spend or cancellation fees unlike many other restaurants nowadays. Food was value for money and the pool table was something fun to do. I'd recommend The Silverlake Social if you're looking for a casual, low-key and not stuffy place.

    Alot more expensive than it used to be from being a regular, and menu seemed quite limited. Should be able to order from bar like most other hospo places can again now. Insted of paying markup from the stupid ordering app. Wouldn't reccommend for time being. Looking forward to silverlake returning to its busy days with interactive friendly staff. All the best.

    Seemed under staffed and not full range of drinks on tap available. Normally the best reason to go to this pub. Food was very greasy.

    Always fantastic service, delicious food and a great experience at the Silverlake. The team were very accommodating in putting on the boxing and ensuring we were looked after for the whole day. Couldn't recommend the place more.
