The Eton Mess
Excellent service, attentive welcoming and polite staff. Cocktails are top notch. Taste good with creative twists for each cocktail. Worth a visit. Good music.
Took 25 mins to get a drink. Expresso Martini had no coffee in it just a liquor. Ordered a pink gin and they got that order wrong as well! Absolutely no atmosphere/ ambience- very disappointed snd won’t be back
This is a good place to catch up with friends. Food and drinks are versatile and there is something for everyone. Pricing is reasonable.
Avoid at all costs. 25minutes to get a drink, cocktails are average, ambiance is sterile (surgical spotlights) and above all else, the service is shocking with no guarantee you’ll get what you asked for. It’s just stressful and not worth the time of day.
nice looking restaurant with a friendly ambience however we were hurried throughout our meal and they had run out of many of items we had ordered.
Nice venue and great sheltered garden.
Venue inside looks really nice too.
We had the bottomless brunch for my friends 40th birthday. The outside space was fantastic - great coverage, heaters and decor. The food was yummy and the service was really good with such lovely staff. Looking forward to visiting again soon
I have no words for what they dared to serve us today. It was the worst food we've ever been served at any restaurant in the UK
Hi Thank you for your review and apologies as we clearly did not live up to you expectations. We take feedback extremely seriously and would welcome an email to email@example.com to help investigate and rectify. I hope you will help and get in contact with us. Thank you in advance.
The staff went the extra mile, made a special gesture for a 21st birthday which was really lovely.
Cocktails delicious. Loved the outdoor heaters, made sitting outside really comfortable.
We had the table booked for 2 hr but at no time were we told we had to be off the premises by 7pm
Last orders called at 6.10 and no member off staff seemed to know what was going on. We were told different stories by each member off staff
Amazing experience, very friendly and welcoming! Have a great time! Good cocktails too
First time visiting this venue. Really pleasant experience. Beautifully decorated throughout. Fantastic outdoor area, small but we booked so no waiting for a table or anything. Was under shelter and had heaters. Food menu was beautiful but we didn't order as we had eaten, would definitely order food there in future, the food coming out to other customers looked and smelled great. Drinks were lovely. Really polite, pleasant staff, especially the new guy who served us, he had only been there a couple of shifts and he was really nice. Look forward to visiting again. Only thing that could've made it even better wouldve been some light music outside as it was a bit awkward as it was so small and quiet everyone could hear one another chatting.
Lovely beer garden for the summer! Cocktails are great but quite overpriced. This place is better for its drinks than food, but still worth a visit
Nice covered outdoor area to dine at with friends. Heater made it nice and toasty despite the cold and the pizzas were some of the best we’ve ever had. The drinks are good, the service was good although we had to wait a bit longer than usual for drinks. Overall great dining experience.
Staff didn’t really look/act like they wanted to be there.
Were very keen to get us out
Very overpriced drinks which weren’t that special.
You are paying because it’s in Eton!
I had a super Sunday lunch with delicious cocktails in a beautiful setting in the centre of Eton. Can’t wait to return.
Food not great and service was average.
Overpriced for quality of food.
Lovely atmosphere, cocktails, food and staff. Can’t wait to come back
Bad service attentive but didn’t know what they were doing. Girl serving drinks was very good but the rest of the service wasn’t great. Zero ambiance
All fabulous and all diners were chatting to each other across tables service food drinks were lovely great night
Really lovely service & incredible food& cocktails! Will definitely be going back
The Eton Mess is a great local restaurant and has recently undergone an internal renovation and they've updated both the food and drink menu.
The food is excellent! But unfortunately the service or lack of takes away from the top class and beautiful food the chef is making. Its not that the servers were bad or unpleasant, there just isn't enough staff working. And this has been the case on our two previous visits. Currently the wait staff are also expected to make the cocktails from their (excellent) cocktail menu as well as serving the guests. So we've left both times saying we loved the food and drinks but the service just isn't up to scratch (due to lack of staff).
Just to be clear the wait staff working there are great, they're just expected to do too much which damages the guest experience.
Dark interior but very friendly staff. Delicious passion fruit mojito and the food was excellent. All in all a lovely evening out.
No menu and minimal food available. Lamb was ok. Kind of chewy
Sunday Roast is amazing! Never fails. New decor is sleek! Lovely venue we have been coming here for years!
Great food, cocktails and atmosphere! We had a great date night here!
Really disappointed with first visit on Xmas Eve. No small plates being served so had to choose meal 3 days before. Wd were put into a booth which resembled the inside of a telephone box which was freezing cold away from the fire where we had drinks which was nice although only one other diner in restaurant so no atmosphere, and food well below average. People told the kitchen was closed so people being turned away - all in all won’t go back.
Came for Christmas Eve dinner. Menu was preset and not nearly as good as regular menu. Been before and enjoyed everything, but this time it was subpar and a big disappointment!
Very helpful staff with menu choices. Food was good, plenty of it and hot
4 items not available from the menu. Christmas menu not available for our Christmas party even though we had booked a table. We were told we needed to have preordered to get the Christmas menu but had not been told in advance. We left before ordering. Very disappointed.
Lovely venue, nice nut Sunday roast option for the vegetarian in our group. Fab cocktails. Would recommend. Shame the Eaton Mess was out of stock though!!
All lovely, even if their wine list had been (hopefully temporarily) desecrated by something or other.
Food and ambience as ever tip top.
A fantastic evening, we had cocktails first and the staff were lovely, I had requested a booth for our meal and that was ready and waiting for us. The food is so good, it’s obviously home made and pretty generous considering they are small plates. Lovely service, only one problem which kept it away from 5⭐️ Is they had run out of the wine we had started with and we had to choose another. Not much of a problem really,
Recommend the bottomless brunch with choice of cocktails or prosecco. Great food, lovely staff. Will def go there again! Well done Eton Mess
Very nice lunch.
Good service, good Sunday roast.
I would very recommend to others for a good meal
Service was good and very welcoming. Unfortunately the food did not live up to this. The hollandaise sauce on the eggs Benedict was tasteless and the eggs over cooked. The batter on the fish and chips was soggy. All in all a very unsatisfactory meal at £20 a head for one course and a soft drink.
Poor service. Waited over an hour only to be told the food would take a lot longer....
Staff were very unwelcoming. Any request was argued, or moaned about to other staff members.
Bottomless had SO many rules it took away the fun. Each cocktail took around 25-30 mins to make, so we were without cocktails for the majority of our time slot.
The bartender licked the straw testing our drinks, AND PUT THE STRAW BACK IN OUR DRINKS.
The food took over an hour to arrive.
Overall a pretty awful dining experience, I now understand why it was so quiet in there.
Will not be returning.
Booked a table for 2 at 8.45pm through Opentable.
Arrived at 8.35 and they didn’t have my booking. We were taken to choice of tables. After 3 more attempts and me showing the waitress my Opentable booking on my phone they found my booking.
The Opentable page is in no way representative of the venue. This is NOT a restaurant, it a small busy bar with very loud live music (Saturday night) that serves dishes that are more like very expensive bar snacks and do not meet the menu descriptions.
We asked for Olives, which is on the Opentable menu.
They served a wooden platter with Olives and tomato, butter and oil. It was clearly meant to be their Bread & Olives starter but as my partner is Gluten free they just took the bread off and charged us for the starter dish!
All she asked for was Olives at £3.50 not £5.00 starter...
I ordered the Salt & pepper squid and crab mayo.
I received undercooked (not crispy) calamari rings and what I think was tartar sauce.
Ordered - Confit pork belly, burnt apple purée and balsamic carrots. £9.50
Received 4 dried pork cubes, apples sauce and burnt carrots. This was sent back.
I ordered Cornish Cod loin, chick pea and chorizo Stew.
Received a nice bit of fish on chick peas and chorizo, this was in no way a stew! (See pics)
Asked for the bill and then had to ask for the 12.5% service charge to be removed. Pretty shocked that they present a bill with service charge added when we had to send food back and ask for it not to be replaced.
The Gin & Chilli cocktail however was fantastic.
Main issue is that we booked a restaurant with the expectation of the menu on Opentable and ended up with a noisy busy bar with over priced bar snacks.
Looks lovely and the staff are very friendly but they don’t serve food on Monday so that should e corrected on the app. They helped us get a reservation across the street so it all worked out. Look forward to coming back and trying the food!
