Waited 45 minutes for the wrong dish which was served with an extremely lame excuse. The lamb dish that eventually turned up was raw and inedible.
Over priced for the level of service and poor standard of food.
TRY SOMEWHERE ELSE!!
amazing roast (in quality and quantity - very important!), great service, wonderful atmosphere, free papers, and a surprising dessert option which went down almost too well.
i feel exactly how i should feel on a sunday - relaxed & happy, a bit too full, and ready for a sleep :O) Hooray!!
Will definitely be back! absolutely no connection other than wanting local businesses to do well.
Ceertainly a very welcome addition to the neigbourhood and a place I will be going to again.
First off... Hello SE1forum peeps... We've recently moved to the area (elephant) and were told that this (forum) is a great source for all things local.
Two weeks in and we discovered The Laughing Gravy... And what a find it is. We thought that it would have to be a trip into the centre of town to find such a great place.... Nope... It's on our doorstep (kind of - a 10min walk)!
To keep it short... Great hosts/staff... And the food is second to none... An amazing find in SE1... And happy to start calling it 'our local'.
Having tried to turn it into something it was so obviously never going to be, it has reverted to a good chill-out venue with more than decent food at very reasonable prices. I believe the long-term manager, Grant, was responsible for this renaissance.
Happy hour is every day from 4-7pm when all drinks are £2 and they have brought back the free curry Mondays - served from 5.30-8pm - woo hoo!
There are newspapers, books you can borrow, a few games and good staff. The bar menu is back on the blackboard where it belongs, albeit a little shorter than it used to be and still a few 'restaurant' tables at the back.
All it needs now is a return of the fairy lights around the bar and I'll be a very happy customer.
