Would have liked cake as well as tea, but nothing doing and I didn't fancy toast. Still, the tea came in a pot (always nicer), easily enough for 2 cups.

I have eaten here several times and it has always been good, but lately it's got even better.. The breakfast is to die for, it's not the cheapest, but if you want cheap go to a greasy spoon, the have a good selection of wine...(which my wife drank lots of) and Estrella on tap, which is my favourite, the location is good and the staff are friendly and attentive.. we will definitely be back and I recommend you tryMore

I love this bar and the breakfasts are the best ! The staff always friendly and accomodating. Play good music and always have good amount of gin selections and Fever Tree Tonics - would recommend a visit.

My friend and I came here a few weeks ago with our 1 year old children for an early lunch. We came in and instantly felt like a bit of a problem as we turned up with 2 (well behaved) children. Every time we asked...the waitress for something (like a menu) she would literally put on the table and quickly walk off. I must of asked for the kids menu and lunch menu about 3 times. Anyway, we got in at 11:35 and we wanted to order off of the kids menu and they said we couldn't do this til 12, even though the restaurant was completely empty we couldn't place our children’s lunch order until 12. What was we supposed to do with two 1 year olds who want to eat. The only alternative was to order off the adult breakfast menu. The restaurant was empty and the chef can’t have been busy. If I was the manager I would have been furious if my staff didn't apply some discretion. Anyway we went and had a lovely meal in Belgique and that's £45 the front room lost out on and 2 potential customers. We always take our babies out on a Friday for lunch as it’s our one day off a week and we know not to return. Not a child friendly place at all.More

Always good for a beer or coffee but food is average and breakfast a little expensive. Very nice friendly staff but toilets very old and dirty that put us off eating here again.....

Hello wildrover1953, We are sorry to hear that you were short changed, and we hope that was amended. Regarding the issues with 'BEER', we do stock bottles of Doom Bar if that interests you at all. We also do not have the space in our...More

Visited for lunch. Nice food but the waitresses are not very friendly and sometimes seem reluctant to work.

Maybe it's a one off but if I was the owner I would want to know. 4 of us ladies went for breakfast and all our poached eggs were hard - we sent them back and they returned 15 minutes later with new ones -...Obviously we had eaten everything else on our plates. They left our our empty plates on our table for a good half an hour. We asked for a discount and they said they would not charge us for our drinks, but teas and coffees are included anyway ! In the end we only paid for 3 instead of 4. Poached eggs should always be served runny, or at least soft. It's a good place to eat so hopefully this is a one off.More

Hello, We very sorry to hear about your experience at The Front Room. You are absolutely right, poached eggs should be served soft and the waiting time to receive the new eggs were unacceptable. Could you please let us know which day you visited our...More
