    The girl that greeted us at the door was fantastic , she was pleasant & helpful (a blonde girl) However our table service was shocking , our server didn’t understand a word we Wer saying or what we were ordering , she didn’t know what garlic sauce , gravy , sausages or a Long Island cocktail was. We have had long islands many times in elephant and castle and her answer was “no not on menu” I went to the pleasant girl that greeted us at the door and she sorted it out for us and we got the Long Island in the end. A really bad experience for us as a family…

    Good food and a nice setting, only complaint was wings not having enough sauce as Elephant & Castle wings normally do, had to ask for extra sauce. Other than that all good.

    As a diner with an egg allergy I was disappointed with the service received. I have been previously and therefore thought this was a great choice for lunch on our day trip to Dublin. Unfortunately, this was not the case. I ordered the Mexican chicken Ciabatta stating to the waitress that I had an egg allergy and requesting the mayonnaise be left off the order. The lady came back to say the chef had advised that there was egg in the dough, which is questionable but anyhow we came to the conclusion that I wouldn’t have bread I would just have the Mexican Chicken. When the order arrived I noticed something drizzled over the chicken, I questioned the waitress only to discover that it was in fact mayonnaise. This could have cause a significant allergic reaction if I had not questioned this and in fact took it for granted that the kitchen had adequately dealt with the egg allergy. Thankfully I did notice this and it was rectified but this could have been a very different outcome and one I feel there should be repercussions from. More training and awareness is definitely required in this area for both waiters and chefs. Other than this the rest of my party thoroughly enjoyed their food.

    We were waiting over an hr for main course and when it came the lettuce and croutons in my salad were wet and soggy. My husband risotto tasted starchy and when we got the bill there was 3 dessert and 2 coffees on the bill which we hadn't ordered.

    The food came quickly, which was great. But the drink service is too slow. The pornstar martini was excellent, but the whiskey sour tasted like diluted juice drink. The gin is served with no garnish - we had to ask for some lemon, although Hendricks is usually served with cucumber, but anything would have been nice. Taff were very friendly, place was lovely.

    The table was extremely small for 4 people. We ordered drinks with our meals 3 pints of beer and one passion martini. Drinks took 15 mins to come. Passion martini didn’t come with Prosecco shot , but everyone else I seen drinking yheee got one. I ordered a gin and was given a pint glass … found this so unprofessional. Food was nice. Our server was friendly and not her fault she wasn’t making the drinks but the bar staff were very slow.

    Very disappointing experience- the restaurant & bar are fabulous in design and we were really looking forward to our pre theatre dinner. Starter was nice and service to that point was fine, however went downhill fast with no cutlery for my main and tried to get attention for 10 mins, eventually I got my own. Then my main salmon was lovely but veg & potatoes freezing 🤦‍♂️. My wife’s chicken was cold and she couldn’t eat it, we could not get attention of anyone and nobody in service came near us for the full mains, to add insult the service girl went to take away the plates without even asking how was our meal when clearly my wife’s dish was hardly touched. Also specific wine ordered for our mains never arrived and we had to remind staff, they arrived after dinner with zero apology! Needless to say an absolute service & quality disaster and one that would not entice us to return. Very disappointing indeed!
