Harden's survey result
“Buzzy and informal”, this pair of farm-to-fork brasseries in South Kensington and Westfield Stratford (shrunk from a mini-chain) “have some interesting English dishes on the menu” which “can be good”. But they are “still unbelievably variable”, and “can be rather noisy and chaotic”.
This “comfy and slightly rustic” West London mini-chain featuring British fare is reduced in numbers nowadays and its performance “continues to vary wildly”. Fans, though, say the service “may be chaotic but is always cheerful”, “love the farm-to-table options”, and find it OK value.
“Some days are really good, other days distinctly ordinary” at this rustically styled chain, where the odd report is of total disaster, but the best praise a “buzzy” atmosphere, plus “good and typically British” dishes.
“The success is mystifying” of these “casual” faux-rustic diners, that make much of their local sourcing and seasonality; aside from being “patient with kids”, service can be “atrocious” and the food “distinctly average”.
