Burnt on one side and I said NO cheese.

Absolute disgrace.

Have you ever seen those hidden camera programs on staff at fast food restaurants? Never ever send anything back or argue.

You can solve all such problems by not going in there in the first place.

No Mayo - Fine

No Gherkin - Fine

No Salad - Ok I guess or you could scrape it off with a burnt chip.

No Cheese - UNACCEPTABLE. :bluelight

WHS, although I go further and avoid all food establishments, except McDonalds obviously. Unhygienic, expensive source of calories, risk of food poisoning, feel you are being ripped off, awful service and much quicker to stick something under the grill at home. And in Johnny Foreigner land they even expect a tip, how dreadful. I sometimes peer at diners through the window and pity them.

But then you have admitted buying your birthday presents in Poundland :laugh

Used to like them but not sure they are as good as they used to be. Plus they reduced the portion sizes, kept the price the same, and then introduced new "large" versions at a higher price which were the same as the original portion sizes!

These are better:

Oh I wish that were true. But as soon as the kids grow up I will not be in one again.

Did you complain? Sounds like a case for environmental health.

I stuck it (half eaten) in the fridge intending to take it back and kick up a fuss. A week later I got sick of seeing it, and threw it out.

Might try that place when next in London. Just need to work out which is closest to Marble Arch or Temple as the location on there mean nothing to a northerner like me!

Overpriced rubbish.

Hawksmoor (http://www.thehawksmoor.co.uk/) is the be all & end all of burger & steak-related goodness in London so far IMO, tried Byron, doesn't compare.

In fact - I call this as the next CUK bash location. The food & drinks are <insert the mother of all superlatives here>.

Covent Garden is close to Temple.

None are really that close to Marble Arch.

Personally I love them. On my last visit I took a working class oik there. He is not used to decent service - so when the waitress came over to ask how the meal was after a few bites he told her to f**k off and leave him in peace! Maybe one day I will take him to the Manoir or fat duck....

Sounds like worth going to just to try the Peanut Butter Shortbread with Salted Caramel Ice Cream from their desert menu.
