Has anyone been offered a free meal as promised here?:
If so, why are there no new reviews on this site?

I emailed a few days ago and have had no response at all, not even a message along the lines of "We're sorry, but due to exceptional demand ...".

I walked past the Brassierie last night at 8.30pm and there were, I think, just two customers in the whole place -- which seems hardly likely if they were really giving free meals, and hardly a good advertisement for the place.

If no-one has been offered the promised free meal, it looks like they may have simply used the SE1 forum for some free promotion, in which case I say boycott the place!

I was going to post the same thing! I also applied and have heard nothing. How rude!

Well it's either clever marketing, or they havent realized that SE1-ers are the people who will rave about your restaurant - so jump them up the queue!

I've sent in an email last week and haven't heard anything - not even an acknowledgement. Shall have to wait and see if they send me a members' card!

Me too...let's see if the Member's card materialises....

I also sent off an email to them and haven't heard anything...

If it was just a marketing ploy then I for one will be boycotting the place and asking everyone else that I know to do the same!! Ha! :oP

I had the sam response as Rash1.

I won't be recommending the resturant.

Any chance of having this removed from the SE1 Forum all together?

Just a thought

Don't forget the postal strike which may delay cards etc.

Yes, thank you, James, but Royal Mail isn't necessary to convey polite acknowledgement emails, surely? TIC

I think that if a company are putting this kind of an offer out there, then they should make sure someone deals with the response. Disgruntling your local customers before they've even set foot inside is not generally considered good marketing practice, methinks!
