                Despite being half an hour late for our booking, the restaurant staff were welcoming, polite and understanding. The venue was relaxing and well presented and the food was tasty. Only point to consider would be keeping the bar area clean and tidy. I would recommend Urban Meadow Cafe and Bar to friends and family.

                Bit of a strange lunch. We had a smoothie bowl as the starter, no other choice. No ambience at all. Change of staff meant that they weren’t attentive, although I must say the staff were very pleasant.

                Food was boring and uninspired, waited forever between courses. Everything was stale and old, down to the dessert which was so old it had ice chunks inside it. Poor standard, will never return.

                Adapted for safety for COVID 19 measures in places very clear. Restaurant was very good in confirming booking and keeping informed of new opening hours. Only downside is if you need to call back you can’t as you have to dial the hotel and they will / can not put you through Food was excellent as always and staff were lovely. Highly recommend

                Good location however the food could have been better. The starter was pretty much lettuce and tomatoes. Main course was okay but not cooked well.

                Took my girlfriend there for the afternoon for traditional tea with Prosecco. The whole experience was lovely, the ambience and asthetics of the bar was very nice. The cakes were delicious and sandwiches were nice and Prosecco was top drawer! My only complaint was sandwiches could have been more filling. I would reccommend urban whole heartedly and would like to give special mention to Richard the head waiter/manager who was brilliant a real credit to the bar/restaurant.

                Incompetent service from start to finish. After not bringing one of our mains for 15 min after the other guest’s main had arrived, the waiter promised to “look into it” but clearly didn’t care either way. When another 10 min past I prompted again, he said he would speak to the chef (the main was poached eggs on toast), obviously the order had never went in. Then the waiter to tried to throw us under the table to his boss (we had not said anything to his boss, he did this) rather than own up. In the end I asked for a croissant on the house so I could at least take something with me since my baby was starting to get antsy. Even this took 10 min. Literal definition of incompetence and indifference. Definitely don’t waste your money or time here with plenty of other cute pubs and restaurant nearby and a nice family cafe just 2 min walk inside at the Princess Diana playground.

                Service was slow to start, no Prosecco for about 30 mins after sitting down despite food sitting at the buffet. Then young waitress Isabel redeemed this with great service skills and a lovely smile. There was only one other waitress who was helpful, the others we asked for certain things such as condiment must still be enroute with them. Food was great, replenished quickly enough and the chef was helpful in answering questions about the food which had no information about ingredients etc. I was disappointed in the fact that there were no soft drink substitutions as I wasn’t able to drink alcohol on the day so I had to purchase bottles of water. Great ambiance and I would recommend to others.

                Awful service - the staff don't want you to be there and are very slow. We waited 20 mins to be given a menu and glasses of bottomless procesco. We were not allowed to move seats to closer to the window or outside and were squashed between two other groups. It was very uncomfortable.

                Once we'd chosen our table, nobody gave us menus. We had to go and get our own! Nobody came to take our order until flagged and nobody came to check how our food was. The service wasn't rude but it was very bad. Unattentive. There was a child running up and down by our table and no attempts were made to stop him or to prevent our meal being spoiled. No atmosphere. Food fine but not enough to save the place.

                We were greeted with a smile at the door and were asked where we would like to seat. Service was efficient. The waitress Alex was friendly and we ordered an afternoon tea and a bottle of Prosecco to drink after. We will be returning.

                Great location, just off Hyde Park. Modern, fresh decor. The food was good and we weren't rushed. Thought the Prosecco at £30 a bottle was a bit steep but it was very palatable. Urban Meadow claim to cater for vegans. The butternut squash vegan curry in coconut sauce was delicious. My only gripe was that my friends had interesting puddings such as Eton mess and crumble whereas my only option was fruit - healthy but hey, come on, surely we vegans deserve better? Also, they struggled to find me any soya milk for my coffee which again was strange as they claim to cater for vegans. That said, as a place to meet up with friends we would go there again.

                Service was poor. 2 ladies spent the whole time we were there sorting out the knife and folk draw. we waited a long time for water, I then had to get up and ask someone again for it. The manager was too concerned with the knife and folk draw than the customers. The food came cold and had to be sent back. They were vacuuming around people while they were eating. when we mentioned the bad service we were told it was because they were busy. The café was not busy at all!! I will not return to this café. Very disappointing

                A magnificent find in a desert of chains or memberships. Worthy of a meal or just a coffee. We had pulled pork burger and mozzarella for mains, the latter being somewhat dry as served with a flatbread. Fries or rice would be better. Good dry prideful served us well.

                Bought a 3 course meal for 2 with Prosecco for my boyfriends birthday and it was just perfect. Richard our waiter was amazing from start to finish, from a warm welcome when we arrived, to constantly topping up our glasses (without us asking!) such a vibrant warm personality who you couldn’t help smiling at. The food was incredible, and overall perfect night! Thank you Richard <3

                Service was a bit slow at first. Took a long time to get a drink. Menu was interesting and we all enjoyed both courses. Wine was a little overpriced. The place lacks atmosphere. Maybe some background music would help.

                Went here for afternoon tea for a Friends birthday . It as , lively , busy & ideal post theatre . I felt the sandwiches could’ve been fresher but lovely selection of treats . Prosecco was very plentiful. Great value for money

                Nice restaurant&cafe, linked to the hotel. We enjoyed our brunch: the food was good, the atmosphere relaxed.

                Afternoon tea is great for a catch up with girlfriends. Staff were attentive, nice clean bathrooms and it has become our favourite.

                We were very disappointed with our brunch at the Urban Meadow. We were here for my daughters 21st birthday and had booked ahead. It was such a glorious day that we asked to sit outside. We waited over 20 minutes for anyone to come and offer us drinks (it wasn’t busy) and that only happened once my husband had gone to the bar to complain. The food was ok although they had forgotten to serve the bacon with my daughter’s pancakes which then arrived later on a separate plate. The waitress also came to ask us if we were ready for our main course when three of our party were still eating our starters and when told no continued to clear the table anyway. The food was good but the ambience and service let the place down, certainly not what we were expecting. My daughter was given a birthday muffin once we had settled the bill by a lovely waitress who sang her happy birthday, this was a lovely gesture and had this been the way we were treated from the beginning then my review may have been different. We had the brunch special which was 2 for £25 including a bottle of prosecco but instead of paying £75 we paid nearly £120 as apparently tea and coffee isn’t included also service charge is automatically added! This was supposed to be a special birthday treat for my daughter..... birthday brunch with prosecco but we went away feeling disappointed and uninspired wishing we had just gone to Borough Market instead!

                Came here on a weekday evening. We had a 3 course meal bought for us as a gift on wowcher by a relative. After arranging childcare and travelling via train then tube to get to the restaurant we were so disappointed with our meal and the evening as a whole. Upon arrival we waited to be seated next to the sign, a few members of staff busied around us but none said hello or we wont keep you long or anything. The lad that greeted us saw we had a piece of paper in our hands so skipped the pleasantries asked to see the paper and then said he assumed our reserved table was "the one over there". We sat and waited, werent asked what drinks we wanted when a bottle of prosecco turned up (included as part of the deal but would have been nice to ask my other half if he wanted a beer?! Or do we want the wine now...or any water etc...?) Menu was given to us and then waiter disappeared for a short while. The restaurant has no ambience and the music could do with being turned up as you dont feel private, the tables next to you can hear everything youre saying. Which makes everything a bit awkward. The starter was bland (mozarella and fig salad) as was the main (urban burger) so we asked for the bill and didnt have dessert as we just wanted to leave. To be fair to the young waiter when i said we were leaving he did look genuinely concerned that we were disappointed and did ask what he could do...but too little too late. The staff all need some training on customer service and serving with a smile. I know we had a voucher...but if the hotel is trying to encourage non-hotel users to come in...this needs some focus to make those new customers want to come back! Our voucher was bought for us by a family member as a gift, and i am sure this will be the same for others too, so i hope the urban meadow take this critisicm in the way it is intended and improve their service for the next customers.
