Lasting impressions: Cosy, intimate, friendly, fabulous food, friendly staff - a real gem of a restaurant... long may it continue!
My experience: We tumbled in on a Sunday evening and although it was quiet, we were pleasantly surprised by it. Different areas of the restaurant have a different character and each area is small enough to ensure you don't feel like you're swimming in an empty room when it is quiet. We haven't been when it's busy yet, so I can't comment on what that's like... The staff are friendly. In a good way. It's one of the very very few places where you actually get the impression that they're genuinely glad to see you and if it wasn't for the fact that you're really just there for food, if you all just sat down for a bit, you'd probably walk away with a new friend or three... There's a genuine warmth in the staff that is most welcome and we would go back for that if nothing else. However, there's more to take us back... The burgers were great. I had the Wailer (posh fish fingers on a brioche bun) and the bf had the XTC (steak burger on... I'm not entirely sure because I was so interested in my own meal, I didn't steal any of his for a change). The milkshakes are good. We didn't think that the onion rings were particularly special, which was a bit of a shame as everything else really was.
Be aware though, that if you end up sitting by the chain curtain, it is intriguing to look at but it's absolute child-nip... No child walked past without playing with it, which wasn't a problem but if you don't want to be disturbed, don't sit by the chain curtain.
The verdict: We will be back! 2-for-1 burgers Sun-Tue were just an added bonus, we would have gone back without the deal. We hope it stays the same and the only thing we'd hope they change (so far) are the onion rings. We love everything else!

Awesome relaxed atmosphere with the friendliest staff in Ealing! Just opened in January, it really is a chic place to head to for a bite to eat, a wine sitting outside in the sun while you people-watch...... or a few c••ktails in the evening!

2-for-1 on burgers from sun-to-tues. Lovley chic, chilled, arcadey and all things british!. Breakfast joint by the morning, burgers by day and chillout bar by dusk!
