A bit of a disappointment if I'm honest. The boy and I went for a wander around the common and then stopped by here for some lunch. The menu looked decent and we were expecting a Bodean's style atmosphere.
The first thing that struck me when I walked through the door was how little atmosphere there was. The place was quite busy but there was no buzz. We were seated and ordered within 10 minutes. However, it took another 10 minutes before we got our drinks which seemed a bit much.
We both ordered burgers which were good but not 'ohmigoshineverwantittoend' good. The meat was almost too chunky and a little over done for my taste. The chips were also pretty disappointing- a bit floppy and slightly undercooked.
Service was definitely the biggest let down though- slow and unattentive.
I won't go back. I think there are better burgers in London for the same price.
I went to this place to get a quick take away gourmet burger and chips because the large life size cow outside intrigued me and the A-board said the ULTIMATE Gourmet Burger to which i thought... wow, better than GBK? I was fooled.
If you like your burger charred to death, with the inside of it smelling like rotting flesh, then this place is for you!
I suppose I might have been unlucky, but the chips didn't fill me with much confidence for that. Sorry, but GBK gets my order from now on.
Review for the battersea rise location. The food is very good, but a bit variable. Sometimes the ribs are incredible, other times they have been noticeably over cooked. The burgers are average, if you are looking for a decent burger there are much better places around.
The buffalo wings are good, but spicy.
The main downfall is the service, it generally quite poor. The last two times I have been in, I could not find a clean table. The staff are friendly, but slow, very hard to get the attention of a will forget most things you ask for. If your trying to get drinks and the place is busy, it might be worth getting the yourself from the bar.
In my opinion the issues with the restaurant service just relate to poor management rather than a staffing issue.
Still if want ribs, you are in the area, not easily annoyed by poor service and can't be bothered to travel to Bodeans, then go here!!
If you love steak you will LOVE Cattle Grid. Oh my God their ribs are sooo good !! Very well priced also.
