Delicious food and excreted service
My favourite Sunday Roast in London
Really good food, reasonably priced, nice relaxed classic pub,
Nice location still very central but far enough off the tourist route to be a more local feeling (and priced) place. Any time I have visitors from abroad that I want to show around I will bring them here at least once.
Unfortunately, apart from the lamb main course, we found the rest of the food dreadful. The " violet artichokes" as a starter came as a plate of potatoes with one minute artichoke ( clearly preserved in a jar or tin) that had to be searched for, swimming in disgusting gravy. The aubergine main course was served with a sauce that was clearly a jar of passata and the cherry pie for dessert was stale. The service was less than amateur and the bill ( which included 2 G&T, 2 beers, a bottle of mid range wine and a small glass of rose) came to over £180! I have complained directly to The Cleveland Arms, who had the cheek to tell me their food was fresh produce, all locally sourced!!!
Small menu but excellent food and service
tasty food and wonderful service
Great atmosphere and pleasant staff (a little slow, however, as we waited at least 15 mins for drinks at the table).
Delicious Sunday roast!
Service was good, food was excellent. The food was not at all fancy, just well prepared, simple, fresh and delicious. Also, drinks were reasonably priced and great. We will definitely return!
Glad to see pub is doing well business wise but as a long term local/user I am less likely to come. Although the quality is still good the quantity and presentation of the sunday roast i just had was no where near what it used to be. I also find the service although friendly somewhat off hand and no notes to bookings ever seem read. Its the eternal restaurant dilemma - how to keep standards up while business grows and sadly the Cleveland is for me failimg at this. Also find the maitre'd/manager smiley and superficially friendly but not really interested in his customers. Unfortunately after last experience I could longer feel comfortable recomending.
Great and friendly service
Good service and great food in an atmospheric setting.
