In true Olde Worlde style, Davy's Old Wallop real ale is served in pewter tankards or copper jugs. Decanted daily, vintage ports are available by the glass or bottle. The Champagne Charlies dining room serves up hearty British fare and chargrilled dishes, and there is a relaxed bar menu with hot or cold dishes available throughout the day.
Traditional favourites on the Champagne Charlies menu include fish and triple-cooked chips with tartare sauce, bangers and mash with Madeira gravy or wild mushroom risotto with Portobello mushroom,. British artisan cheeses accompany English puddings like treacle tart and custard.

Customer reviews for Champagne Charlies

Hadn't been here for a while - was pleasantly surprised it was reassuringly unchanged from my last visit. Service was friendly, efficient and understated. Drinks and food were elegantly presented. Compact menu but good range on offer. Each in my party of three ordered something different and we all agreed everything was delicious.

Had lunch here with a friend. Food ok, atmosphere just right for us, we wanted a quiet area to chtat, Not very many patrons, but service was good.

Front of House was excellent especially the Head guy Italian I think. The risotto was the best I've ever had. The only problem is that some of the tables for two have huge ironwork legs!!! I hit my leg and really really hurt it. In fact we moved tables three times because of the awkwardness of the legs!!

We were a party of 6 following on Frin Carol Concert at St Martins and were cheerfully greeted by Manager and shown to one of the rooms set aside which had Christmas Decorations and was quite special.
We all ordered something different and were well satisfied but I would say that the steaks were served without the guests being asked how they would prefer them cooked.
The Manager was , helpful and attentive and we as old customers will certainly be back and for those of our party who have never visited Chsmpagne Charlies before they will also return.

I've eaten here many times and the service is always first class - just the right amount of attention without being invasive. Food is fairly basic fare, but always of good quality and well presented. One of our group was delayed by almost 45 minutes because of rail disruption, but the restaurant manager took the time and trouble to keep us regularly informed that this would not be a problem - a very nice touch.

I had booked a table to meet a girlfriend to have a bite to eat from your good menu and talk. However it was incredibly busy at 6pm and seriously noisy we would have had to shout at each other. Staff were good and tried to find us a quieter table but it was not possible so we had to leave. There must have been several office parties going on but it was not as we hoped because I have met friends there previously and it has been perfect. So we were disappointed.

Good food, lacking atmosphere on Saturday night. Some background music would be good. More attentive waiting would be good. No offers of sauces or accompaniments, or water. Waiter a bit brusque and didn't write order down and then got the type of steak wrong, though it was a good steak and cooked to our liking.

Given a table in the " office ", good for a party of 5 to 8. Choice of food good. Early dining @ 6.30 gave gd service but when it got busier later on the service died.
