The Red Lion and Sun 25 North Road, London, N6 4BE (Map)

Love this place. I know several locals don't like the transformation of the Red Lion but I think they are just the types of people who like to complain for the sake of it. The new owner (independant)... More Atmosphere: Value: Quality:

“Overall a very disappointing experience. Having read some reviews I thought it worth trying. However I was very disappointed by the grubbiness of the glass table over the rustic oven. What could have been quite fun was overshadowed by the dirtiness of it. Especially when one was expected to use it for one's bread! The food was very sub-standard. The bread was doughy and had a rancid taste. The chips tasted as if they'd been cooked in years old oil and were inedible as were the dishes of spinach and mushrooms, both of which had an overpowering taste of burnt garlic. The bavette was overly salted and the steak was over-cooked and tough. As to the presentation, my prawn starter arrived in what at first appeared to be a tupperware container but turned out to be a pressed glass jar whipped straight from the fridge and plonked on the table. Two starters were served in Le Creuset saucepans from which it was difficult to eat. The wine, while very nice, was decanted at the table in an over-elaborate procedure which resulted in much spillage. It seemed out of place with the rest of the restaurant's theme. In fact the overall impression was one of schizophrenia as they clearly weren't sure if they wanted be rustic french or chic sophisticated. The price would have been just passable had the food and service not been lamentably below par.”

“A perfect little neighbourhood French bistro; great food, friendly service & a very welcoming atmosphere. French standards like moules, steak frites & oysters are all down with care & no pretension.”

“I searched for ages to book my girlfriend into a nice place for her Birthday lunch and came across Moomba Bar & Kitchen... from the moment Ritu called me back (within 10 minutes of emailing) I knew I had found a great place. Prior to our arrival she was in constant contact to see if she could help in anyway.... getting balloons, ordering a cake and having it made etc. On Arrival we were seated very nicely toward the back, although it would have been marginally small for what we booked (15 people) we only had 10 which was perfect. Ritu had gone out of her way to decorate our table superbly and have some champagne on ice. Service was quick and Ritu was there to make sure everything was going okay. Food arrived in very good time and everyone loved the dishes (mainly a fantastic Beef Roast). Sunday Lunch menu is quite varied seemingly having an option for everyone Ritu played the perfect host making us all feel welcome and relaxed. We will certainly be visiting Moomba again in the near future.”

“The food at the Oxo Tower restaurant is amazing and the service is excellent. Had a brilliant night in the bar after the meal - you have to try the cocktails. The whole experience was very cosmopolitan!!”

“Thankfully a cool bar has opened in W2; there is every type of restaurant you can imagine in the area, but now somewhere happening to congregate before and after. The cocktails are great and the service wasn't bad considering how busy the place was. They have some nice seating areas for that 'date' evening, or a buzzing bar area for the night out with a group. I will be a regular haunt for me as it is a stones throw; plus it was full of great looking women!”

“Amazing! I live next door to this place and never get tired of it. Lovely atmosphree, fab cocktails, great people - plus the crowd is never overly rowdy so I never get woken up at kicking-out time. The staff are fantastically accommodating, too. Highly recommended.”

“This place is shocking, whether we just had a bad night or what i don't know. We had hired a booth as there was to be a few of us eating and drinking. We turned up to find out that the booth had been given to someone else as they were a larger party (more money in the coffers i guess) anyway, they apologised with a bottle of wine on the house, fair enough. So we continued, albeit now with two separate tables for our party, one which had a coffee table, hardly ideal for eating. We then ordered the food; starters and mains...in time we were informed of 4 things that were not available on the menu...on a saturday night of all nights, this too didn't go down too well. Then to add insult, the waiting staff, who's grasp of english wasn't the finest, bought out the whole meal, starters and mains, together...and tried to squeeze onto our little table...no chance. We complained again, and this time the manager decided to show up himself as opposed to him sending someone else. He apologised, but didn't offer anything like a solution, except re-heat the mains when we wanted them. He then trolled off, and returned with his bouncers...because he felt threatened by the tone of voice...big man, get the bouncers when three girls start to complain...how sweet. We then said forget it all, we'll finish our drinks and leave...to his reply of 'it doesn't work like that' came the cry. Our resident legal diner spouted off about statutory rights and fulfilling his contract blah blah,”

“A great pub with stacks of atmosphere at a superb riverside location. Hosting world class jazz since the sixties. 8 times a week, every week. Good choice of food including Thai and of course excellent Youngs Beer. Bar staff friendly and workmanlike, particularly in the Jazz room. If you are a Jazz fan don't miss the Bull's Head. Easy parking after 6pm.”

“Westbourne House is rather stylish and relaxed. A feat many london bars fail to achieve. However the service leaves a lot to be desired, more panache is required if the venue is to live up to its early promise.”

“How is it possible for an Italian restaurant to get pizza wrong? Attilios know how! When they saw their customer not eating their pizza (i.e. me), did they come and ask how was the food, even though the owner was watching from just 3 metres away (but proud enough to paint his own face on the wall twice!). Am I writing this because I am bored and have nothing better to do - NO! I called over the owner and said I was very upset that the pizza was undercooked, he said I make a new one if you like, I said no need, if anything please give me a glass of wine. He did that, and then had the cheek to charge me for it! I have never had a terrible pizza before, I did not know it was possible! Next time, although it galls me to go to a chain, I'll go to Carluccio's! NB the lighting in there is awful.”

“I went to Solea for the first time on a tuesday night with my girlfriend. I was really pleasantly surprised. The staff are great, really relaxed atmosphere, nice people, great service and such value for money. The food was outstanding and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Plus they have a little cute courtyard outback with a few tables for the smokers ;-) Definitely going back there.”

“Wow such good reviews for such a bad restaurant. The service was awful, the worst I have ever ever had. We kept being told off by the waitress for simple things like pouring water in a wine glass. Even the table next to us were being told off and we were all there to celebrate an occasion. Food was less than average. For the money we paid I was expecting fine dining. The amount of food we got was fine dining (tiny servings). Nothing special, if they charged £5 for the main dish I wouldn't of complained, but it was a set menu for £40 and they served rubbish. You the reader deserve better food and a better experience, stay away.”

“This restuarant is amazing! Stepping into the interioris a step back into a world of history and culture. As you feast on the wonderful taste combinations and soak in the warm relaxingatmosphere you may also feast your eyes on the history of Sheba and Soloman in ornate artwork and tapestry. The warm welcome and inviting smiles help make this a great experience for all. Children are welcomed as family!”

“Much fuss is made about the difficulty of obtaining tables at this swanky iconic restaurant in London's Park Lane, however, book sensibly in advance (1-2 month's and we had a table for 30) and one of the best food experiences in London is yours. The food created here by the restaurants nakesake, Nobu Matsuhisa, is imaginative, innovative, and above all downright tasty! The service was excellent, with all of the courses (9 in total) being served smoothly and timely, and despite the exclusive outer/media persona all of the staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. Get yourself on the guestlist (or book a room) for a few after dinner drinks in the fashionable Met Bar housed downstairs (both restaurant and bar are housed in the Metropolitan Hotel) to finish the night off nicely. Altogether a fab night out, shall be returning soon.”
