I was really shocked the food was awful and the service was worse. Will never return.... How do you mess up a grilled cheese?????
Absolutely love this restaurant. We always get the chicken tiki masala hot! It's wonderful. The atmosphere and good service makes it one of our favorite places to eat in downtown St. Petersburg.
Not what it used to be.
1st time back after 10 years and was a dissapointment. In short, food was burnt and the server abandoned us. Also, the manager showed no interest to our dissatisfaction.
Seriously folks, don't waste your money. There are better places that this.
$7 for 3 fast food chicken tenders.
The environment and location of this restaurant are great. Very nice patio seating, cozy bar, and advertised "happy hour specials". We looked at the menu of "happy hour price specials" which aside from a few $2-3 items all seemed to be about normal price for appetizers. We ordered the smoked fish dip for 5.50. This item was delicious but was served with packs of crackers wrapped in individual plastics which came off as very weird. Some bread or crustinis without the wrapper would have been a much better it.
We also ordered the buffalo chicken tenders which were $7 and were BEYOND disappointing. We got 4 small, fast food quality chicken tenders in a basket with a cup of buffalo sauce and a cup of ranch, 2 pieces of celery and 2 carrots. We could not believe that this item was priced $7.
Now featuring St. Pete's RUDEST wait staff!. WAS a personal favorite. Charming atmosphere, nice patio to enjoy al fresco dining. Great selection of premium beers on tap and pretty good food with a English colonial theme. Unfortunately, now ruined by a horrible group of wait staff with no training and no manners. Unruly or uncaring when they forget something (often). Long periods where you are forgotten. And a somewhat more senior school-marm in tennis shoes in case you need discipline.
Why is this place still open???. Lousy service. Waited forever to get drinks. Refills were painful. Food was so-so. Very bland. Nasty. Like it sat around stewing in a pot all day. Waitress did not care. Even got an attitude. Just don't understand why this place is still open .....
British Food ???????.
British Food ?
Well the owners I here are from the UK. My lass ( Lass=Wife), is from Greater Manchester and I lived there as well. Owning a home in St.Petersburg, Florida, we opted to try the restaurant out. We ordered a typical British favorite, Bangers N' Mash only to find that the Beans were not traditional British Beans as you would find say it the British section of the Grocery store here called "SweetBay" in which is in a tomato sauce. The peas were not the traditional mushy peas also found in Sweetbay, the Banger's and Mash was pretty good however.
Thank god they had Stela lagar though a half pint, still an exceptional drink despite receiving the negative name of " Wife Beater" within the United Kingdom. Our waiter was not very good on knowledge of the Bangers when asked if they work Pork or Beef and needed to ask the chief. I was offended with the Islamic Flag in the tavern considering that Islam has taken pretty much over England banning for years our traditional St. Georges Flag replacing it with there's. That I find is unacceptable and disgrace to the true British and American people alike living in the area. Prices were high but acceptable with the location and overhead. The portion did not seem very filling, but both of us left full and brought some home.
Good food good service.
Sat at umbrella covered table in prefect weather. View of the bay waters and boats. Hostess brought menus.
Shortly our drink order was promptly taken by Beth, a hazel-eyed, dual-pigtailed waitress who had an unforced smile and who answered questions we had about menu. She brought out samples of curry sauces for us to try before ordering, which was nice. She waited until drinks were consumed before bringing our food. 2 ordered chicken curry and I had the fish and chips. Very preasant meal, topped with a shared key lime pie. We liked the place.
British Colonial style pub. Nice setting, nice place. But bad service and not very good food spoilt it for me. If I am around one day and need food badly, I may go and try again, but there are many good places to eat in SP that were better.
Best Curry in town?. I am guessing people who say that have never tasted a good curry, because theirs are terrible! The only reason the place is open is because of its location. If it was down to the fact that it was meant to be an authentic British pub, curry and service, it would have gone down the pan years ago. The staff have always been appalling.
