Le QuecumBar & Brasserie, Battersea (Bar / Restaurant / Club)
“I feel compelled to contact you with a review, not of the experience my husband and I had at Le Quecumbar, but of the sheer lack of it. It was a Sunday afternoon, and we were taking a stroll around 5:30pm, too late for lunch, a bit early for dinner but we thought any place open and running would do. What better than a French wine bar (we love wine) we found just round the corner. It was open but desolate, only a young man and a young lady behind the bar welcoming us in and informing us that we will have to pay £12 entrance EACH. We asked why and were told that at 8pm (or was it 8:30pm?) a live band would be playing and that this is the entrance fee/ticket to see them. We informed them in return that we simply want some food (we were starving) and a drink and that would not take us three hours. They said it makes no difference; we'll have to pay the £24 for the live entertainment we were never going to get to see. I looked around at the empty place and due only to my hunger I suggested the option of staying for some food and, at the exceptional circumstance we were to still be chewing on our food three hours later, when the band would start performing, to pay for the privilege of enjoying their music. 'Non' was the answer; we have to pay £24 for the privilege of eating at the establishment, music or no music. A totally absolutely empty of any costumers’ establishment, may I add. A totally absolutely empty of our custom establishment for ever, I need not add.”
